Google Maps or Cycle Instead

I've been using the cycling layer of Google Maps when cycling to an area I don't know.  I liked the way it seem to crowd-source information to come up with networks.But it has some weird ideas, having Main North Road just above the City as a "bike friendly street".  Does anyone have any opinions on which sources to use?  How is Cycle Instead?  See More

I just dropped in to Kevin Clark's bike shop on Magill Road and saw this weird bike with two sets of nylon cords instead of gears.  If you look closely at the photo you will see lots of notches.  There are nineteen, for the nineteen gears, all in a single ratio.

It's also got hydraulic rim brakes, which I'd never seen before.

It's a sort of a step-through commuter bike with lockable front shocks, good for hopping kerbs.

Kevin also tells me he now sells more electric…

Conversation with Lord Mayoral candidate Kelly Henderson

Posted on October 22, 2014 at 14:30 5 Comments

I had a long conversation with Kelly Henderson on the weekend. A former President of the Parklands Preservation Society, Kelly is known as taking a fairly uncompromising stand on protecting the Park Lands. We probably need such people, to balance those who just see it as unexploited real estate.

But Kelly wanted to talk to me about cycling. She thinks the Frome Bikeway has created a backlash and has made life more frustrating for motorists, e.g. the right turn bans have made life…
