"In the 1970s in my first job as a junior clerk at Adelaide City Council and responsible for supplying copies of by-laws to the public , it is my recollection that it contravened bylaw 34? to chain a bicycle to street furniture. It seems little has…"
"This is a real conumdrum, sometimes I think, that anything is better than nothing, but that thought rapidly turns to indignation, why should cyclists be treated as lesser citizens. I am frustrated by so called cycling facilities that stop abruptly,…"
"Hi Matt, Yeah sure I can see the big picture but there ain't any point in me writing a diatribe about my actual thoughts. Apart from in a vanishingly small number of European countries the spending on dedicated bicycle infrastructure is paltry.…"

"Just got back from the city. Explored a few different back streets, rode through the Parklands at North Adelaide (looked a little like a golf course) most pleasant. Few drops of rain riding home just as darkness was rolling in. Isn't life grand…"
"With all of these types of rollouts you would want to get the big picture work done first. I supposed the first thing would be just establishing a route and maybe clearing out some of the road blocks. the more hardcore riders would ride it.
"The ride to work is a sprint, so is ridden on main roads. Mainly 1. Brighton Rd, 2. Marion Rd, 3. Morphett Rd. I don't mind the traffic on Brighton Rd. I like the bike lane on Marion Rd but have been avoiding it lately because the surface is so…"
