So this year I started getting into cycling for more than just commuting and it's been great. I took part in Grand Slam #5 and the second half of Amy's Ride and now I'm looking for more! So what is…Continue
Just looked at their website and apparently I'm already a day too late to get a jersey before the event! Is this right? Seems a bit much to expect people who want to wear the jersey on the day to…Continue
For what it's worth, I've found that taking control of cars around blind corners almost always gets a positive response. I move to the middle of the lane and put my arm out for them to not overtake, make it clear that I am…"
"If I'm in a lane that's only 2m wide and 1.anything m wide mini goes past without touching the centre line then it must have passed within a metre - that's how I'm suggesting something could be proven.

"If someone is going to pass me I'd rather them be consciously aware that they need to leave a metre than not. I don't actually care about whether it can be reasonably enforced, I think it will make a difference to the behaviour of many…"

"So who is in it next year? At first I was going to use this event to close off a chapter regarding the whole thing with Dan's unfortunate accident and not do it again, as were my teammates. Upon completion though Matt immediately decided he…"
"Good on you :o) I went through that intersection just after 9:00 I reckon, so I didn't see you, but there was someone on Greening drive (I think) at about 8:00 with a Gawler Wheelers sign who I saw and waved to"
"Seriously, do you really think that it would happen here? This state is run by a bunch of cardigan wearing, namby-pamby, ultra conservative, self serving geriatrics (whether they be geriatric or not) who won't even throw the book at a…"
Welcome to Adelaide Cyclists. You might be interested in joining AC group Commuters and, if you cycle in the city, Adelaide BUG. I coordinate four AC groups with emphasis on improving cycling conditions: Adelaide BUG, Prospect BUG, Look For Cyclists and Vote For Cyclists. There is more info in the introduction on each group web page.
