Hello Folks. We are coming over from Melbourne to deliver training on E-Bike Building and Mechanics early next month, at The Bike Kitchen.  We still have positions available on the 5 day intensive & practical course, where you will turn your own bike into an e-bike, and learn all about it, giving you the potential to work in this rapidly growing industry!  You can find out more at or feel free to ask any questions here, or by calling 0390246653.  Cheers, RevBecca

Dear cycling enthusiasts. Please come along to the Bicycle Institute's AGM next Tuesday, May 12, to hear what work it's been doing, and hear Mr Paul Gelston, Chief Operating Officer in the Department for Planning, Transport, speak and put to him any questions you have about cycling infrastructure and safety.

Notice of Bicycle Institute AGM

Bicycle Institute Public Meeting, Tuesday 12 May, 7.30pm.
111 Franklin Street, Adelaide (former BikeSA site)

If you're interested in better conditions for cyclists, come along to our AGM.  

Find out what we've been doing, tell us what what should be doing, and perhaps even get in involved in helping us to do it.

Guest Speaker Paul Gelston: cycling and our arterial roads.

As well as talking about projects and advocacy that we have been busy with, we will have Mr Paul Gelston talk to the meeting. Paul is the Chief Operating Officer in the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. Before that, he was a project manager for some of the more important projects that the State Government has undertaken in recent years.

You might have attended consultation meetings on Greenhill Road, and before that, the tram bridge over South Road, where Paul was up front dealing with local residents and interests like ours.

Paul will talk to us about the role of the State Government in providing for our transport needs, where cycling fits in, and the pressures faced in trying to meet broad State government objectives and deal with political demands whose basis ranges from metropolitan-wide to very local concerns.

The Bicycle Institute welcomes new members and you can join at the meeting. Membership is currently free.  
There are opportunities to get involved. We has welcome nominations for office holders (Chair, Vice-chair, Secretary, Treasurer) and Committee members.

RSVP encouraged -

Adelaide Airport wrote to Adelaide BUG that facilities would be improved before Velo-city conference in May-2014.
Your feedback is welcome.

This comment might make it easier for conference attendees to find. Some interstate & overseas delegates said they will provide feedback by email to Adelaide BUG.

There are still some tables free for the Bicycle Institute 'Wheels of Fortune' quiz night this Friday at the Community Bike Workshop, Plympton.

$15 a head. Form a team of 8 (or so) and book in ASAP. The Bicycle Institute advocates for better and safer cycling in SA.

We'd love to see you there.

Hi heather

How do I get on your mailing list?

Comment by heather on July 16, 2012 at 19:07

I received the following from an ACC staff member.

Adelaide City Council also has an app that lets you reports on incidents & hazards within Adelaide City Council’s jurisdiction. This can be used to report any issues cyclists are having too.

-- Blackberry link: (this is a direct download link for the app)

I've just posted a detailed message on the Bike Black Spot App discussion with news that the App is now live for South Australia.  Yes, there are other reporting Apps, but none with a publicly accessible interactive map.  Reports using this App go to State Transport Minister Conlon and Federal Transport Minister Albanese as well as to Greens Senator Scott Ludlam and to me.  We want to build a case for better cycle funding.  Check it out: but if you read my post first, it will all make more sense.

Thanks Gus. I do not have a smart phone so email instead.

Comment by Richard on June 18, 2012 at 21:52

Only for the Adelaide city and North Adelaide though - yes, I know that covers enough sins to keep any engineering section busy until retirement, but is there one that does down south here?

I do recall a similar app being reported a while back, but you needed to have your email account set up to use it which I wasn't interested in doing.

Comment by Gus on June 18, 2012 at 21:23

Did anyone else know there was a smartphone app (iPhone, Android) for reporting hazards and issues in the city? It's called Report It and it's a worldwide app adaptable for any city that wants to use it.
