Has anyone else found a sudden increase in drivers going out of their way to be nice to riders?This week I've had cars stop to let me through twice in places where I should give way to them. First…Continue
"I wonder how long until the dirt path round the Palais gets upgraded and sealed due to the safety concerns of off-camber bends with a loose surface after rain. It's a definite improvement from the path passing through the restaurant past doors…"
"If "the work" is going to require removing the existing bridge even temporarily, then that seems like a credible first step, then call for tenders to build a new shared path bridge, with the option to use (or not) the existing piers if…"
"I saw a motorbike with an L plate stopped in the bike lane this morning, in line with the gap between the second and third cars back at the traffic lights. I didn't see how he/she got there, but accepted that once that is where they were, they…"
"Playford does the giveway signs and "road ahead" signs on shared paths, but nothing on the ground that I recall. I have no idea about other shared paths in Light.
Stuart O'Grady Bikeway as it stands is pretty much an exercise track…"
"Oops - posting late at night - I meant the Stuart O'Grady Bikeway uses the paving bricks.
Jack Bobridge track does all sorts of things, including stobie poles in the middle of the path in a few places, but its road crossings are generally…"
"I assume it is to force cyclists to notice that they are about to cross a road.
As you note about vehicles driving round the rails and fences, that one at least might be the quickest solution on a mountain bike, too!
Jack Bobridge track marks road…"
"Not in ACC: Road crossings on the Nuriootpa-Angaston rail trail.
Each road crossing has a pair of U-frames offset from each other blocking the entire path. The chevron infills are relatively recent and will improve the visibility, but they still…"
"If they are only giving three weeks to develop a bespoke manual, it has to be substantially written already, whether it is copied-and-pasted from other jurisdictions or other ACC documents, there isn't time to write much more than a foreword…"
"Would it be less-safe for cyclists to move the signs out onto the concrete islands? Drivers are used to parking next to the signs. That would also provide something taller than doorsill height to judge the car's position against while parking."
Hi Scott, I sympathise re the disconnected bikedirect route in your area. I do not cycle there so have provided some authorities that you could contact. Let me know how it goes. Cheers, Heather

I have a set of pedals with toe clips attached that I will bring along next week (meant to today, but forgot until I saw u this morning) You are most welcome to give them a go. I think that you would find them extremely helpful, especially on the Bupa ride with those hills :)
places like Adams Road, Craigmore where the pedestrian crossings by the schools protrude through the parking lane almost to the solid line on the right side of the bike lane.
Scott, can you provide clear photos of this? I am prepared to discuss with the pertinent authority. Persuaded DPTI to remove the concrete obstructions on Fitzroy Terrace. Doubt that I could persuade the local council to do the same for the main street in Gawler that were deliberately added later. Heather, Coordinator of Adelaide BUG
