Peter H replied to baa baa's discussion The fact is that the vast majority of cyclists using her cycle routes are in Lycra, over the handle-bars, in Tour de France commuter-mode, cycling at about 30km/h.
"Here's a thought: According to Scrubby, cyclists speeds are around 30km/h. The average speed of cars in Sydney is 24km/h. So it is in fact that cars that a slowing the bikes down, so how about removing the cars from the road."

"Isn't it time we scrapped shared paths, coupled with a campaign/advertising scheme enticing more pedestrians to start cycling???"

"How come this thread got active again anyway? Someone think it was current? Old Iron Cove bridge path still gets some foot and bike traffic, shortest way to Birkenhead Point etc if you live north of Victoria Rd in Rozelle or Balmain. New IC Bridge…"

"Hasn't Iron Cove Bridge effectively been bypassed for pedestrian traffic, leaving it largely unused? "

"I suspect Harold says and does things to get into the Daily Telegraph, similar to Milo. They know their target audience and wish to remain relevant to that audience. Lots of people on bicycles could easily do 30 km/h on the Iron Cove Bridge given…"

"Harold Scruby once again shows us that he is ignorant, intolerant, foolish, and a bit of a mad bigot. Limiting cyclists to 10kmh is a deeply useless idea - many of us ride for pleasure, for transport, for commuting, for health, or all of the…"

Cold sweat about bicycles moment.

Posted on August 4, 2009 at 9:24pm 6 Comments

I like a few other syd-cycs will be building up a bike.



I have bought the frame and thinking it should be a nice fun bike, and somewhat "cooler" than what I would normally ride.

BUT on the morning ride to work, I had a cold sweat moment...

Should a man my age be seen riding such a cool bike?

Can you have a mid life crisis which has nothing to do with sports cars but all about bicycles?

Will my just turned 13 daughter think her dad is a dag riding a bike which any… Continue

Nice chook. Yours?

Chooks are good as long as you don't want a garden. Ours were bred by the Soviets and operate on the scorched earth principle. They are also bloody Houdinis, always escaping from their enclosure. The daughter likes them though...

Just noticed your picture. Classic. I've got a sore neck just looking at.

Thanks for the link that is really great.

Am currently in England on holidays and the cold over here has lead to me thinking up all kinds of changes and new products we can do to help better in the cold. Have just be testing my wool cashmere winter cap to hold out the winter chill and drizzly rain and finding it works quite well.

Thanks again

Hi baa, Baa, its a great idea, but I'm so busy I could not do this. Why don't you do it and I'll leave lots of comment. Have you looked at my movies on E bikes, by the way?

07:45-ish on Wednesday. No other vehicle involved. She still has a bit of worry about "slowing the traffic down" so made to move off onto the car park bit and did not notice the lip (which had gone by Thursday am) until she hit it at too an acute angle to get over it.

Thought that the latest addition to my next door neighbour's menagerie might be of interest to your young ones! :-)

Thanks for the reminder about exelite. I was able to find a lumisash online and have used it a couple of times in the past week. Reflective clothing is good but with the lumisash I feel like I can be seen without needing to have a car pointing at me with headlights reflecting off my clothing. A lot better system.

Thanks for the link baa baa. I've had a bit of a look. It is interesting to look at what other places are doing to encourage cycling. It is a big task to get an idea of "best practice".
