"Perth is a great cycling city. Perhaps because the trains are so damn expensive, it is either drive, ride, or walk for most people. Fortunately there is decent vehicular infrastructure here that drivers don't race down back streets to try to…"
"Yes. I was in Mbne last week and stayed around the Carlton/Fitzroy area. That statistic where 1 in 5 women ride a bike in NSW was borne out down there. 1 Bikes everywhere. All types at all times of day and night. Mix up…"

Mostly on the touring bike but I also ride a road bike
Another guy on a bike. I have been very fortunate to have had viable cycling opportunities over quite a long period. I rode to primary school from a farm outside of town and cycled a lot during high school. I went to SU in the early '70s and had a bike there. By the mid 70s I had discovered touring and spent a few years around Australia plus did a 6 month trip overseas. In the 80's I cycled a lot. But in the 90's I was looking after teenagers and the mortgage so did not do much. From 2000 I have been back into it and loving it. Always looking for touring companions for 14-18 day trips.
Unfortunately we don't get to do a lot of riding together these days, wot wiv kids'n'all, though occasionally we have managed a tour interstate (Tas, NZ -- not quite interstate, but you know...) or closer to home. Quite a few BikeNorth rides go right past our house so we sort of feel included!
Hey, are you coming to the bike breakfast on Monday to celebrate the LCT SUP opening? We'll be there.
