noelbike replied to Jonathon Troy's discussion Thinking about the super commuter
"At $400-$600 can you really call it a "super commuter"? I'd think a real super commuter would be a very good bike and they cost somewhat more."

"Absolutely. And this bullshit of short guys riding high in big trucks not able to see around them has to end now. Let the trucks in between 2am and 5am or redesign them. Let's face it, there is nothing surprising about this news."

"Perhaps we need a special bicycle awareness training (and testing) for these drivers.  What else can be done?"

"You can buy a bike box at Sydney airport and also at CDG. Ride there and pack the bike there. So easy."

"Blocking would surely be circumvented. Detection and prosecution have revenue opportunities, so seem to be the way things will go."

"Sad but interesting that his friend who was working with him on this sort of system was killed by a driver of a car in LA in 2013. Sure hope some detection system gets put in, drivers are just out of control. Are there other ways of doing it-…"

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…"

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.
