Since this has happened for a few other councils... has anyone done any research on the candidates for Marion Council elections, regarding their policies on cycling?Continue

Fooled by the weather radar

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jilden May 30, 2018. 10 Replies

Is it legal to ride on the footpath when there is a bicycle lane present?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Keith Apr 24, 2018. 4 Replies

"I'll add, cyclist usage of the bikeway has definitely gone up in the last few months, in my observation. Initially it was common for cyclists to use the road instead, perhaps I was seeing about 50-70% usage. Now it is close to 100%; I really…"

"Ouch, really sorry about your injury, and I'm glad i wasn't worse. First, where does the PJV actually end? Anyway, I think the best route north of Sturt Road is probably Bradley Grove, which is about 500m east of Marion Road and more or…"
