"Hmmm. A conundrum.
Personally (and professionally) I find it offensive. While the intent is well meant, the execution is flawed.
Without seeing the campaign in entirety the sole ad depicted seems based on the precept…"
"Agreed Tim B.
One of the best things about about Adelaide is the proximity to the CBD of so many different rides - tough climbs, not so tough climbs, nice metropolitan rides and nice coastal runs. Add to that motorists who are…"
I have a carbon frame Jamis with a combination of 105 / ultegra components, while my partner has an aluminium frame Giant with a Tiagra groupset. I've ridden both and if anything will support the argument at our level for a good…"
"Agreed - it is quite American Gus - perhaps "Unrestrained dogs and Ipod impaired pedestrians terrify us" might reflect a more international view.
A hoot though - be interested to hear other modifications (or Australianisms ...)
"Rode today but then I have the benefit of being in Darwin (not quite clear skies but mid 20's in the morning and low 30's in the afternoon, if a bit breezy).
For all that I would love to have ridden in Adelaide ... miss the hills :-(
"What an obtuse and contradictory view by Ford and his deputy.

"Oops! No slight upon SAPol facilities intended - I was working in Darwin at the time ...
Where I worked had a rack that could accommodate six bikes for a staff level of around two hundred, so there were a number of bikes propped up in hallways,…"
"Nice topic Don - perhaps 'pot stirrer' might be a suitable replacement for 'who's lost' ...?
One can only assume that if the Prime Minister in waiting is happy to feature his (apparent) enthusiasm for cycling as an integral…"
"Very true Clive - Gorge Road isn't far away (I've come to enjoy riding it in recent weeks).
Reverse RLC? Don't know any details + I will be co-driving Kim as she sets out to return to Darwin on Thursday so while I'd love to…"
"Hear hear Katrina,
While it would be easy for me to stay away from you Pat (given that I live in Ridgehaven) I'd happily book a spot with you in a group ride - provided I can ride alongside or behind so I can watch like a hawk and follow your…"
Comparable to coming down the last couple of kilometres of North East Road between Inglewood and Tea Tree Gully perhaps? Have ridden down there a few times - can't quite match the speed limit but can't go too far left for…"
