Gotta get the camera out again

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simpson Mar 24. 4 Replies

I haven't bothered using my camera for months now, because it is such a faff keeping it charged and removing it every time I lock the bike up, which is a lot. Also, I've been disappointed by the…Continue

I've really wanted a bike trailer for a long time, mainly to bring home groceries from the shops. I'd been looking at the square pet and child trailers but preferred something a bit thinner,…Continue

Simpson replied to heather's discussion which camera?
"Hi Heather I've never had a rear facing camera. I'd love one but have to consider the expense as Peter notes. I have used an old GoPro Hero 3 for years and the video is excellent. Much cheaper versions would do a similar job. I just have…"

"Yes, I understand about being selective. Over the years on this site, I have read the views of others who say that if it is a public road, then cyclists should be able to use it. I have agreed in principle  but have now accepted that some are…"

"Simpson, my utility cycling also involves lots of stops with short rides in between. I started a discussion of ‘which camera?’ www.adelaidecyclists.com/forum/topics/which-camera"

"I've had a lot less incidents lately due to improved motorist behaviour and being very selective with the roads and suburbs I ride through."

Gotta get the camera out again

I haven't bothered using my camera for months now, because it is such a faff keeping it charged and removing it every time I lock the bike up, which is a lot. Also, I've been disappointed by the disinterest from SAPOL when trying to report close passes.Anyway a fool passed me so closely on Military Road that I almost had to fend off his car. Luckily it wasn't too fast as I was riding where concrete traffic control structures made the lanes thin, but this bloke wasn't prepared to wait and…See More

"Thanks for the tip about stowage of heavy items right in the back. I daresay that would take a lot of weight off the skewer and also reduce the sideways forces acting on the back stays. Yes, it would be a complete pain in a group ride."

"That looks like a modern version of the old B.O.B. Trailer (Beast Of Burden) that was popular 10-20 years ago. I've still got mine somewhere, used it for cycle touring in the outback. Great in a straight line but a devil in tight turns. The…"

Happy with new bike trailer

I've really wanted a bike trailer for a long time, mainly to bring home groceries from the shops. I'd been looking at the square pet and child trailers but preferred something a bit thinner, hopefully to be only as wide as myself on the bike.This is a "Pacific Touring Trailer" and it only cost me $239.00 from 99 Bikes. I don't mind giving them a plug as I dropped in to the West Lakes branch, and an assistant called Rob was super helpful and couldn't do enough for me. It really impressed me that…See More

Profile Information

What bikes do you ride?
Giant road
When do you ride?
Weekends, Commute
..perhaps some more information about yourself for your profile page
I ride to replace car journeys, to avoid parking and to keep fit. Because I want to just use the bike whenever I can (and for other reasons) I don't bother with the sporty gear and click ons. I try to enjoy riding rather than always pushing for faster times, but I totally understand why others do.

Saw your comment about road debris. Most bicycle lanes are on arterial roads (DPTI) or in the City (ACC). Contact either:
-- Traffic Hazards, Transport, by email DPTI.EnquiriesAdministrator@sa.gov.au but if an urgent hazard like broken glass, phone 1800 018 313 (24-hr)
-- ACC, city@adelaidecitycouncil.com
