"Signs are a fantastic step in the right direction. Where they are done reasonably well (e.g. Unley) it makes getting around the suburb by bike that much more painless and smooth.  Fingers crossed that some of the safety works start soon too!…"

"Very good.  I saw the blue signs glowing in my bike light on Monday evening. I guess the ones are back on Devonport Tce also."

"Yep - will take picture and have a look when i get a chance. It would be best to do when cyclists are present. I did note cyclists and pedestrians having trouble crossing there during my time observing bike count for Adelaide City Council recently."

"When I was there yesterday a brand new shared path on the southern side of Fitzroy Tce seemed to take cyclists towards the swim centre from the Prospect Rd lights. I didn't follow it but will at some other time."

"Jilden, can ride west, then south to cross Fitzroy Tce, to Jeffcott Rd where the kerbside lanes are too narrow for safe cycling. Need a safe crossing to access the shared path through the parklands, as well as the Adelaide Aquatic Centre."

To decrease bike theft at the uni, install enough secure bike storage. A link to buy and/or install bike cages and sheds. http://www.bikestorage.com.au

David, today learnt that plain clothes police patrolling bikes cos many thefts. Frequent complaints from cyclists in your locale who cannot get place in secure bike cage. Even complaints that the newer racks hard to use (and do not meet Austroads or Australian Standards for secure locking).
The one-off cage designs have been too expensive for the uni. A while back I gave you info from Bicycle Network Victoria on what might be flat-pack cages. Now is the time for you to follow this up with potential success. A roof would satisfy some who like to keep their bike out of the rain and sun.
Marc who told me the news said that some areas where if locking gates with swipe cards installed, this would make bikes more secure. Another approach that is used by ACC for its staff at 25 Pirie. Includes a roof supported by 4 poles. Reminiscent of bus shelters -- not surprising because made by Adshell. Marc said that roof would be too expensive for this or cage, so be prepared to back down on roof request.

Yesterday I encouraged someone to Ride2Work and the free breakfast in Victoria Square. The tempter for the first 1,000 is a coffee voucher to use immediately. There will be some stalls there for paying customers of coffee, smoothies mixed on a bicycle, and the Veggie Velo cart pulled by a bike.
