No catch, just respond to this if you'd like to take up the seat alongside me tonight for the 36ers v Townsville Crocs. Should be a great game.

"Because car drivers can not be expected to drive safely. And architects cant make ramps that are safe. If it is dangerous for bikes it must be dangerous for cars. Perhaps the car-park should be closed to cars for safety reasons? "

"My work also has signs asking cyclists to walk the ramp, they also have 5 km/h signage which is ignored by most car drivers, the worst offender being the managing agents!!"

Hey Shane, im waiting to hear back from someone re a ride for this Sunday, and was thinking that if that fell through - i could make a debut appearance with your crew...if that was still an option! ...will you be heading out this Sunday?
At 11:26 on April 27, 2011, Sam said…
Sounds great!! I will come along this Sunday (i will be away the following weekend). Re insurance, while i am not a Bicycle SA member, I do have a Cycling Aust Licence, which includes insurance...hope this is sufficient! ;-)

Hi Shane, thanks for adding the post 'what's your excuse for not cycling' to Stumbleupon. I was doing some digging about and looking at the site analytics and that post had a lot of traffic. I dug some more and found the traffic had come from Stumbleupon. I also added the site to Stumble because I know how it can help searchability.

Cheers
Angus

Hi Shane, sorry, not sure what coffee shop we will hit when we get there, guess it will depend on who wants to go where, and how many people are already at the coffee shops!

When I head through this way, it is normally on one of my Victor return rides, & I only really stop at Victor on these for a quick bite before heading home again.
