Jannette Sadik-Kahn: All hail the queen of New York City

Posted by Gus K on July 23, 2014 at 23:53 2 Comments

This originally appeared in the Bicycle Institute, SA's quarterly journal Pedal Update. Read the whole issue here or join the Bicycle Institute to help improve cycling for all in SA, it's now free.

Her transformation of New York from gridlock to a walkable and cycle-able city is legendary. Velo-City guest speaker Jannette Sadik-Kahn was New York City’s Commissioner of Transportation and oversaw its dramatic transformation to a cycling and pedestrian mecca, and her presentation impressed Bicycle Institute's Gus Kingston.

Mt Crawford, Wirra Wirra Peaks, loop

Posted by Rob Michaelson on October 17, 2014 at 20:49 0 Comments

Great mountain bike ride few weekends ago. starting from Mt Crawford Forest HQ. Rode around Mt Crawford from the south and, perhaps illegally, crossed some land to get to Police Paddock rd which takes you thru the Gap. Council Maps web page shows a public access route, but couldnt find a visible track.  Onto Mount Rd and up the lovely fire tracks in Wirra Wirra peaks. Lucky to have my map to find the less steep parts. Onto Blockers rd for a hard slog on the Heysen trail linking up to Ross Fire track. Down Old Glen Gillian rd. On the main rd. Turn up Manser rd , into Forest following Fry road leading back to Mt Crawford Forest HQ. Probably avoid the Blockers rd bit next time.

An Adelaide Cyclist in Copenhagen

Posted by Peter Hill on May 4, 2014 at 23:25 9 Comments

Earlier in this year (in March) I embarked on a big tour of Norway and Finland to go chasing the Aurora Borealis (aka ‘The Northern Lights’)

 I had a couple of days in Stockholm (Sweden) and a couple more in Copenhagen (Denmark) and for the benefit of some cycling friends here in Adelaide I have collated a few photos to help de-mystify the Scandinavian bike thing.

Unlike my great trip a few years ago where I hired a bike and rode around Manhattan my experiences of this trip were limited to being an observer as foot traffic and occasional taxi rides.  Sounds like a cop out but considering my grand stuff up from Feb 2013 (I broke my leg slipping on ice in St Petersburg on day 2 of a 6 week holiday!), my notion of risk was highly elevated and jumping on a bike was ruled…

The Shogun and I

Posted by BJ on November 21, 2014 at 10:26 6 Comments

I bought my Shogun Trailbreaker 3 in the mid 1990's, around the time I bought my Commodore.  I was riding to work in the CBD regularly then.  The car was used for a lot of the other journeys in Adelaide.  There were quite a number of weekend interstate car trips in the late 90's.  On holiday trips, the bike came along on the back.

In 2004 I went on my first group ride of any kind - two weeks with The Silver City Bush Treadlers that included going 'back of Bourke'.  I met Mike Brisco on this ride.  2005 was the first year that I kept reasonably accurate estimates of how far I rode, be it short city commutes or riding back-roads somewhere in the countryside (5,215 kms in that year).  I have estimated over the 10 years prior to that I would have done 30,000 kms on the Shogun.  It was 5 years ago I first went to a Critical Mass ride in Adelaide - that introduced me to people whose concept of 'wheels' is only bikes.

It has been on my mind for a while to add it all up,…
