Page 7 of the advertiser today (11/5/2011) has the potential alternative prime minister looking very solemn.
In the article it suggests that when he is the boss things will be different.
In the background of the photo it shows a bike assuming it is Tony's bike and not a ring in to fit with his image what does it say?
The bike is parked in his office.
Could it be that after over ten years of a Liberal government and a good period of a Labor government that nether major political can organise a project like reasonable bike parking at parliament house?
If they cant organise a bike rack what can they organise?
If AC members could park their bikes securely in their offices, wouldn't they?
I do !
Yes, I work from home.
He's a pollie, it's probably a spin bike.
:) Pun intended.
He probably keeps it in his office so Craig Thompson wont nick it from the carpark, head to cashies and then use the funds for his nocturnal activities!
..and then claim someone else nicked the bike but but made it look like he was the culprit.
That is an old photo, its been doing the rounds
I saw him interviewed on TV the other day, in the office and bike parked in the corner
Nice topic Don - perhaps 'pot stirrer' might be a suitable replacement for 'who's lost' ...?
One can only assume that if the Prime Minister in waiting is happy to feature his (apparent) enthusiasm for cycling as an integral part of his public profile we can expect some positive improvements to the infrastructure and support available to those of us who genuinely choose pedals over petrol. I await with barely contained excitement lol.
Heather I, like others, park my bike at work - although the bike rack available to me is accessible to the public. A few years ago a colleague of mine had his mountain bike stolen from the same rack. All the more embarrassing given we work in a police station.
Hence I, like Tony Abbott (and I decry any other potential similarities) park my bike in a rather more secure place, on occasions my office. So to all those employers out there who offer secure bike storage facilities for their employees my congratulations!
Ride safe everyone.
John, do not know your work address. A few years ago I spoke to an officer who said not enough bicycle parking at Flinders Street. Nice that a few cycled to work. I wondered about a bike cage at the rear of the building and spoke to ACC about it. Have not checked if anything eventuated.
Frequent posts wishing for secure bicycle parking at Adelaide Uni. A staff member told me that cages are expensive, partly because each one is designed separately. Bicycle Victoria sells bicycle parking rails. Will ask if they can find a way to produce affordable bike cages, perhaps sell plans that can be duplicated.
