"In the news item (NZ Press) I read on this the cyclist was originally not going to report the incident and it was only after pressure from some of his cycling chums that he decided to take some action."
"While imbibing coffee at my favourite cafe mid ride I make a habit of doing cool cyclist things...like checking my cleats and checking for rogue hairs poking through my leggings. The latter is of course far more serious than the former."
If you truly feel that strongly about seat heights, you could politely say something like, "Hi. Do you know that your seat is too low? I could fix it for you now." Afterwards hand the person a flyer for Adelaide Cyclists. Become an advocate to make cycling for enjoyable? However, think you are expressing a frustration.
Martin, looking at the packed bike on the post about cycling anywhere. Had thought I would never be able to pack lightly enough for an unsupported lone tour. Can you remember your gear to describe to me?
Hi Martin, You say you ride mainly around The Hills. Do you ever cycle to the CBD. Would you like to join Adelaide BUG which I coordinate? In a fortnight having a lunchtime meet-up for coffee in the city. Cheers, Heather
