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

One on right wrist to make signals clearer, and one on right ankle so that movement attracts the eye (in case the red light is lost in a busy background of other…"

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.

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
