"I'm usually interested in travelling E-W through the area, typically from UNSW to the Inner West and vice-versa. If I don't just take the Anzac Pde/Wilson St way (which is usually preferable unless I'm in a rush) the only two choices…"

"You're confusing "giving away free bikes" with "getting people riding" — they're not the same thing. If any one those 300 recipients jumps on the bike and realises that to get anywhere on it they need to…"

"Hi Pip, Because my impression is that they seem to be a members-led organisation, whereas BNSW seems to be a board-led organisation."

Mjog replied to Jonathon Troy's discussion Bicycle Network are coming (to Sydney)
"Same here, but since BNSW's board has stacked the numbers against its own membership, it might make such a take-back more difficult than one might initially think."

"I've met/talked with the Helmet Freedom/Freestyle Cyclist people a few times, but they're basically single issue groups, which isn't helpful in the long run. BNV and BNSW both support MHL, which is an ethical and rational deal breaker…"

Mjog replied to Jonathon Troy's discussion Bicycle Network are coming (to Sydney)
"From an advocacy perspective, because no-one can claim to be pro-cycling or cycling advocates in the general sense (i.e. representing all uses of bicycles as modes of transport, not just as training/sport) and support MHL, since MHL demonstrably…"

Mjog replied to Jonathon Troy's discussion Bicycle Network are coming (to Sydney)
"Were it up to me, BNSW would: 1. Be publicly and explicitly pro-helmet-choice, rather than pro-MHL, i.e. on your web site, in public statements such as the one above, in conversations with the media, etc. 2. Spend 0% of its time lobbying to repeal…"

Mjog replied to Jonathon Troy's discussion How should we deal with this F..ker?
"Please no night cycling - riding through the Park on a moonlit night without lights is one of the few small pleasures left in commuting on a bike in Sydney. Other than being on a bike, of course."

Mjog replied to Neil Alexander's discussion "One of the craziest and biased articles I've read in a long time"
"Yeah, I often wonder about that particular sense of entitlement. One day soon I'm totally going to buy a box trailer, have someone tow it to a parking spot right outside my place, put a bunch of wheel clamps on it and use it to store my bikes."
