Not sure how long these signs have been up for in Pirie Street. I noticed about three yesterday, all as below. I appreciate the intention, but I'm baffled by their placement ie well above my 188cm…Continue
"Calling on the infrastructure experts here - Does this lane need to meet any minimum width requirements to be designated as a bike lane? Are there minimum requirements, or can a 30cm strip be designated as a bike lane, thus compelling cyclists to…"
"It is most likely an Adelaide City Council sign as the design is the same as they were using as part of a campaign in 2105 in conjunction with the Taxi Council SA.
As I remember it, the campaign involved putting stickers on the inside of taxi…"
"Yeah I'd agree with it being unlikely that the council is behind this. Regardless of the amateur design elements, someone has clearly gone to some trouble to print these on metal(?) and securely attach them. If it's an unauthorised…"

I appreciate the intention, but I'm baffled by their placement ie well above my 188cm head height, and facing AWAY from parked vehicles.

""New laws have now made it optional for bike riders of all ages to use footpaths and travel at up to speeds equivalent to the road limit applying adjacent to the footpath."
This is almost identical to one of the main dot points included on…"
"It would be interesting to hear from someone who was actually stopped by the police in this instance, to get an idea of exactly how the police were handling this. I guess the police were undertaking the safety checks as part of Operation Safe…"
"I somewhat naively chose this road as a means of getting out to the Barossa via Para Wirra rec park, on the first loaded tour that my partner and I did. Me towing a trailer, her with panniers. Slow going up some of those climbs, beautiful scenery,…"
"First group ride of any type for me, and at 120km my longest ride to date. I usually ride solo - mostly I'm just interested in getting from A to B.
Latched on to a few friendly bunches and got used to riding in close proximity to others pretty…"
