Does anyone know the actual seconds of time that cyclists get on the green?On Sunday, I tried to time the lights. The two intersections gave 7 seconds of green, followed by 4 seconds of orange.…Continue
There's a protest about NSW transport in general happening on 17th Feb.We're hoping to get a lot of cyclists along. As we all know, cycling has to be a big part of the solution. Sure we're not…Continue
Quick question: After 5 odd years of loaded commuting on the current bike, I've punched a spoke through my rear rim, and thought it would be a great opportunity to build up a wheel. Does anyone know…Continue
The school holidays were a week ago, and we finally went to Paris. It's been a dream of mine to hire a cargo bike sometime, so the wife kindly allowed me to risk everyone's lives to do it.
