Bring it on. Drivers on phones to be caught.

Driver inattentiveness, apart from vehicle speeding and parking where we should be able to ride, is a terrible problem for cyclists.I'm currently in India where I ride every year. It appears chaotic on the roads here but is's actually safe because people are paying attention. In Australia mobile phones have made cycling far more dangerous as they have taken away driver attention which was not great to begin with. It seems just a matter of time before we are run down.So this news item is great…See More

mikesbytes replied to noelbike's discussion Do you think he made the shooter angry by scaring the animals away?
"My comment is generic, not specific to this death.  Hopefully the prosecutors will obtain the correct level of punishment. The type and wording of the charge may be to do so with the laws and customs of the country, they won't necessarily…"

"My answer to the OP is 'probably'. Or at least the prosecutor seems to think so, because he is trying for 'aggravated manslaughter'. The classic example is finding someone in bed with your spouse, so shooting as a reaction, not a…"

About Me:
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.

Hi Noel. Didn't know you were over our side now. How are you going?

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.
