Hi Andrew,

Re our conversation at the cargo bike event. A long time ago a photo in BISA's Pedal Update about my reflective tape, reflectors and lights, which might have shown my utility bike set-up. I looked for a photo on AC but only a tiny glimpse of my basket at
http://www.adelaidecyclists.com/group/bugprospect/forum/topics/look-what-theyve-done-to-my
Photo 1, eastern side, looking south, the ‘before’. The wheel of a bus impinges on the edge of the wide bicycle lane (to be removed soon).
On the footpath verge is a black step-thru MTB by Trek. If you very closely, you can just see the edge of a plastic mini basket (yellow with silver reflective tape around the top edge), a plastic basket (with handle, colour grey with silver reflective tape around the top edge) and a yellow vinyl bag. I do my best to be visible to drivers.

Cheers, heather
