Where is the bike map?

I just visited the Parramatta City Council web site in search of a bike map. I couldn't find one, but when I looked under the menu Traffic and Transport I found the following options

* Parking in Parramatta

* Car Parks

* Public Transport

* Resident Parking… Continue

Family Cycling Group

I've just created a group here on Sydney Cyclist called Family Cycling. The group is intended as a place to discuss things like kiddie seats, trailers, trailer bikes, balance bikes and anything related to cycling with young children. Feel free to join up and have a chat.

On a personal note, I have just notched up six months of owning (and riding) a… Continue

Nothing to do with cycling, but I've just gotta tell people...

Mrs Dan gave birth to our beautiful daughter on the 17th February at 9.45am.

Everyone is doing really well. This has just been one of the most beautiful,
emotional and overwhelming experiences of my life. Just so magical.

And Baby Dan is, without doubt, the most beautiful baby in the world!!!

And, just to add a cycling angle, I now have to get serious investigating bicycle baby seat options!

My city cycling transport blueprint!

His design proposes a new type of bike lane, based on steel wires and suspended up to 4.5 meters (14.5 feet) above the hustle and bustle found at street level.

The above picture of the Kolelinia - a… Continue

Advocacy: Sharing knowledge and developing skills

“We are a political movement. Cyclists are changing American cities. We are sometimes legally and sometimes illegally, pushing people out of their comfort zones into a new place. We are change agents. A big part of political change is taking risks to do things that haven’t been done before and having the courage to do that.” Charles Gandy, Mobility Coordinator, Long Beach

Late last year I received a Winston Churchill Fellowship to look at the way bicycle…

Randwick's got a good one

I ride to La Perouse via Randwick and Maroubra Beach regularly with LBUG and others, coming back via Denison and Banks Sts and always enjoy the run but there are a few places that bug me along the way, so I decided to email Randwick Council with a photo of the offending places. I figure you might as well point out problems and hazards you observe to Councils because, you never know, they might fix them and make your next ride better, or some other cyclists will benefit. And it helps to get it… Continue

Dangerous or not?

A little while ago I replaced the bars on my pug with some wider ones; to make this easier I also bought a quill-to-threadless stem adapter. (I then set about taping the bars with a moderate degree of success.)

The finished product looks like this, including the stem adapter:…
