DPTI have produced a time elapse video with a map superimposed to show how fast it is to ride from Glenelg to the CBD using the Mike Turtur Bikeway. Now you can tell friends there is no excuse if you live that way.
As a bonus see if you can spot the Adelaide Cyclists member (or maybe there are more than one). (Shhhh if you are that person!)
Update: Part 2, the Linear Park from West Beach to the city.
Edward your chance (and other cyclists) to tell ACC what bike lane designs you would like on King William Road north, Pulteney Street south, and Frome Street.
the cyclist seemed to have a good run.
they also passed a lot of cyclists so perhaps they are fitter than most
Love it, my husband commutes into the city about twice a week and people look at him as if he is mad but he says although it may not be faster than the express train from Noarlunga it can be quicker than the car and definitely quicker than the bus.
Think they should promote other routes into the city like this.
I reckon that's Peter Hill in the video.
I saw flat bars flash past and that was my first guess too!
White T Shirt, blue flat bar and an apparent effortless speedy cruise, if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it's probably Peter Hill
well spotted guys! I was wondering if this was ever going to go public.
That morning I was commuting on the Specialized Crosstrail (which is out of action due to yet another broken spoke - 4th in a year, not happy at all).
Going for the breezy polo top and baggy shorts look.
I spotted your effortless pedalling style Pete.
DD do you have a old looking Avanti MTB for your commute? I think I might have parked next to you one morning while waiting to turn right at that intersection. Your bike must have a time machine function on it because you magically vanished when the lights went green.
Thats the one. Day g'day the next time you see me.
I didn't notice G (and the PH man) get to a road crossing at the same time as a tram, as automatic green lights when that happens saves some more time. Note the lack of traffic when they are on road, generally without 4-way intersections. One of the best commuter routes we have (and it's good).
