"Having read Cr Frances' response I really wonder why people write emotive things with no research. Can I wait 'till the full story emerges before we get excited?"

Chris replied to Manis13's discussion Cyclists MUST Dismount!
"Hey lets not get too excited. There are changed conditions due to road works - its not the end of the world (is that happening by the way?) On your PS - Greenhill Road is a State arterial road, not a local road so "they" refers to State…"

Chris replied to Shav Bird's discussion Listening to music while riding - harmless or hazardous?
"Agree. I tend to look for routes like Mt Lofty or McLaren Vale where most of the riding is on bike paths with no traffic or on early morning routes with minimal traffic. I feel quite safe with music in one or two ears on these routes. As indicated…"

"So on that basis deaf people would be banned from riding? If you don't feel its safe, don't do it."

"I tend to see lots of articles with officials expressing concerns but actually no proof they were listening/earphones in ears or any evidence that earphones contributed to the accident. To prove a statistical association you would have to compare…"

Chris replied to adams's discussion Bike lane width
"So it seems to me that if the spec allows 1m minimum - reality is that where there is competition for space or cost pressures that is what will be provided. If this is unsafe (and in my view it is) how can we best develop a consensus and begin a…"

"Granted Heather but you have reinforced the distinction between lobbying and deciding. I was responding to David's somewhat cynical comment by point out that for most bike lanes Councils are not the decision makers."

"Most Councils don't work it out at all because most bike lanes are on State arterial roads. And where they are on local roads they would be bases on Dept Transport specs."

"Sophia, the LGA educating others about cyclists could include something like: Pedestrians, joggers and mobility scooter users -- remember that footpaths are for pedestrians and bicycle lanes are for cyclists. Please do not unsafely obstruct cyclists."

"Exactly my point - and just as stupid as some cyclists and some motorists. Nonetheless it was stupid, unsafe behaviour and I feel better having triggered my first discussion about it on Adelaide Cyclists!"
