"I have no personal experience but anecdotically police persons seem to equate a cyclists foot touching the ground with them having "stopped", otherwise they might view a track stand as "dangerous riding"."

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.

I am right now out at Schofields, near Blacktown. Originally from South India. Not sure which subcontinent you are talking about, could you share some of your riding experiences?
