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

Tonight a glance at weather radar looked all clear (very much like this screenshot from after I got home). But it had me fooled, and it steadily drizzled pretty well all the way home. So does rain…Continue

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 went on took photos after reading this. The bikeway is in 4 sections (north to south: Cross Rd - Delaine Ave, Delaine Ave - Angus Ave, Angus Ave - Raglan Ave, and Raglan Ave - Sixth Ave). Strangely, the concrete median strip is on only 2 of the 8…"
