Cycling in Sydney Australia
The Dutch cycling association Fietsersbond rates this the best electric bike on the market. It's not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. Any other suggestions for its competitors?

I’ve had a bit of a bad run of it lately. The bike cops are doing another helmet blitz on Pyrmont Bridge, and I’ve been stopped three times in the past couple of weeks. Had some lovely chats with them, but each chat costs me $66!
Whilst I have no argument with the individual cops (they are doing what their command have told them to do, and it’s obvious they think it’s a…Continue
Christmas was a very exciting time in our household. A new bike was waiting underneath the Christmas tree! Unfortunately, it was not for me – but for my daughter, who has now reached an age where her full indoctrination can begin. Actually, in many ways I was more excited than if it had been for me.
Found a 24 Hour Bicycle Roadside assist. Only $30 for Most
Sydney Areas. They will take you and you bike home.
They also do Rescues from Wollongong Katoombs & Central Coast.
Type 24 Hour Bicycle Roadside Assist into google. I think
the it is associated with www.jmsvendingsolutions.com.au
where you can find more info and phone.
If you haven't seen this viral video yet, you should. It makes you want to take a kid out on a bike immediately!

Since it is a dreary, rainy sort of day which doesn't lend itself to cycling, after a week of lovely weather which did, perhaps another "Where In The World Is My Bike" is in order.Continue
Americans love their cars, but Chicago is trying hard to define itself as a bike-friendly city, and it's working:
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…Continue
The ideal Dutch city bike rattles, likes being left out in the snow and looks like it's worth less than the chain anchoring it to a large building. Could they ever become popular DownUnder? Here are my thoughts...…
OK, Neil wants me to write stuff about my recent adventure in the Victorian High Country. The written word does not come as easily to me as it does to Neil and others, so I am warming up with a couple of WITWIMB guessing games.
Those who were there (Neil, Mr O', Matt_C, EMT,...?) please excuse yourselves from these.......... Here is the first photo....…Continue
R2R`11 was over,bugger I wanted more.Time goes on I rode self recreational rides and I`m not happy of my Apollo Ascent MTB due to ongoing mended broken patella pains from Canberra Tour`08 crash.My money in bank kept on growing from not spending on alcohol.
I remembered Madame Bike`s advice on my discussion on other site of using the wrong bike and not using cleats.I was thinking of buying a…Continue
I tried out Melbourne's public bike scheme this week. Much to recommend it, though those damn helmet laws are holding it back. But everyone should try it!
Fair to say we underestimated that. Now I’m not saying we didn’t train hard enough, simply that if we had fully known how hard and how daunting that course was going to be we would have done things differently. I’m not going to go into the reason for that now, I’m simply want to review the hardest 8 hours I have ever spent on a bike. Click HERE for the Garmin…
My Bianchi Eros, turquoise blue and much loved was stolen from the University of Sydney on Wednesday afternoon. bianchieros.jpg
If anyone has seen it - please stop it and let me know!
In the end, it was quite a snap decision. 'Why don't you just buy that one from me?' I found myself saying, as I discussed yet again the bike that a friend was going to buy. 'I'd love to - that would be perfect. I like that bike.' came the response, and it was done. The bike that got me back into cycling, that got me fit…Continue
