"I actually like the idea of spreading the word on cycle safety to city commuters. I have been thinking about putting some basic materials together in a way to also promote a site I've just launched (yes there is a bit of a commercial interest…"
"Not the first time I've seen aggressive behaviour from a Sydney roadie (posted another example a couple weeks back). Poor form and disappointing as this could really scare off a new rider and even worse, cause a serious…"
"I saw a cyclist in the CBD last week coming down the street, without lights and some pedestrians were crossing the road ahead - The cyclist assumed the pedestrians had seen her but they obviously had not - Most people are conditioned to look for…"
