(reposting in a better place)Has there ever been a determined effort to get rid of the need to press the "beg button" at intersections, at least along bikeways?It's pretty frustrating to come up to…Continue

Canberra rider died due to bike failure

Started this discussion. Last reply by chris wolff Dec 1, 2016. 9 Replies

A sad and sobering article, on the inquest into the death of Canberra cyclist Richard Stanton last year. The alloy steering tube "unexpectedly and catastrophically failed". Although his bike wasn't…Continue

Peter B replied to Ken the Dane's discussion Where are you Adelaide?
"But car transport expenses, like CTP insurance and licenses, have also gone up, so it's not as if public transport has been singled out. Given some of the spending, I think public transport has done ok (not brilliant, but ok) from the budget."

Peter B replied to Michael Murray's discussion New bike lane on Rundle Street
"I think he's saying that it's almost impossible to park a car between the broken white line and the kerb (unless you have a motorcycle, or that bus from Harry Potter), because the white line is about one metre from the kerb. So is it legal…"

Peter B replied to KimCommuter's discussion Collision at Sir Donald Bradman Drive and West Terrace Bike Path today (2 June 2017)
"The driver can and should be pursued on existing laws, most obviously for failing to stop after an accident. If this isn't followed up, then I'd suggest the problem is police culture (and possibly police resourcing), not the law."

Peter B replied to Dahondude's discussion Marino Rocks Greenway changes at corner East Ave and Cromer Parade
"You might have to do a hook turn: pull over to the left, wait for traffic in your direction to clear, then cross to the middle. That's what I do when turning right from King William Road (southbound) into the Mike Turtur Bikeway, which has a…"

Peter B replied to heather's discussion Gawler Pl upgrade - have your say
"Also some of the road width is being given over to the footpath. That has to be a good thing - the footpath there is nowhere near wide enough, and I often end up walking on the road there."
May 25
Peter B replied to heather's discussion Gawler Pl upgrade - have your say
"They'd have to cross each other where/when there isn't a car parked. So it's wide enough for 2 cars (1 driving, 1 parked, or 1 either way), but not 3. At least that's my reading of it"

Peter B replied to heather's discussion Gawler Pl upgrade - have your say
"The proposal is about north of Grenfell St, which is 2-way anyway. Personally, I'd have safety concerns about allowing bicycles to ride south on the 1-way sections."

Peter B replied to Stig of The Dump's discussion Linear Park Detours
"Is it better to cross South Road further south, at the George Street lights? I've never done it, but looking at Google maps it looks reasonable. The only problem is you'd need to go one block on the footpath on the east side of South Road.…"

Peter B replied to Dahondude's discussion Marino Rocks Greenway changes at corner East Ave and Cromer Parade
"I'll add, I think the ideal would have been to switch the Cromer Parade exits around: the car exit on the left (which left-turning cycles could also use), and the cycles-only, straight-ahead, no-need-to-stop-on-train-signals lane on the right.…"
