Blue skies

There was a bit of blue in the sky this morning so I loaded the kids into the cargo bike and headed off to get supplies. We came home via the CARES facility at Sydney Park. As you can see from the photo above, bike riding is a good cure for juvenile cabin fever regardless of the level of…

A BSO in the UK

I haven't been around much recently, as we've been in the UK visiting family. All a bit of a whirlwind, but I did manage to do one thing I had planned – to go for a bike ride.

For all my plaintive musings about cars, buses, trucks, taxis and motorbikes and all the cheap and nasty moves they pull around me of a morning and evening; Sydney Cyclist has truly opened my eyes to the incredible tolerance of the majority of Sydney drivers.

Why should they have to be stuck behind a bike travelling at half the speed limit? Why should they be prevented from overtaking in a lane four metres wide when it is occupied by a bike using less than half that width? Why should…
