The signals are on at Porter street

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ruddager Jun 29, 2017. 62 Replies

I just missed the green this morning, d'oh! It seems you don't get long and the person ahead of me was just out of reach. By the time it went green again for me a full two and a half minutes had…Continue

Ruddager replied to Savvas's discussion Passing etiquette and safety on the Linear Path...
""if bike riders want respect ... a behavior change is in order" That's not a completely reasonable, it's completely unreasonable and not at all constructive. Should I be expected to be treated like an arsehole by this guy because…"

Ruddager replied to Equal2lance2's discussion Uber Car Detected Pedestrian But "Decided" Not to Stop
"But they're learning so much faster in the the real world! It's actually quite an interesting ethical dilemma. Do you release a "good enough" version that might make some mistakes but will be perfected quickly by real world…"

Ruddager replied to Paul Jorgensen's discussion Comedy Cycling - Is This You
"If everyone obeyed that signal and all the markings I don't think you'd even manage to get all the cyclists through"

Ruddager replied to john mills's discussion Cyclists approaching blind crests and corners and overtaking vehicles
"I rode from Wellington to Langhorne Creek as part of a ride recently. Suuuuuper boring section of road bit with enough crests and turns to be covered by what you're talking about. I did dive off the road once "last minute" (not last…"

Ruddager replied to john mills's discussion Cyclists approaching blind crests and corners and overtaking vehicles
"I literally said that I move over in the preceding post so no, I'm not saying that moving to the left creates expectations, I'm saying that unconditionally getting as far off the road as possible does that. What you call…"

Ruddager replied to john mills's discussion Cyclists approaching blind crests and corners and overtaking vehicles
"You just made an awful lot of assumptions about my own attitude and the way I ride"

Ruddager replied to john mills's discussion Cyclists approaching blind crests and corners and overtaking vehicles
"If your behaviour is to "move right over so that [a car driver] can overtake without having to cross centre line and still leave safe passing distance of myself and bike. That might mean leaving the bitumen." then…"

Ruddager replied to john mills's discussion Cyclists approaching blind crests and corners and overtaking vehicles
"May I add, the way I ride on narrow roads or "dangerous" roads is defensively. I make sure I'm seen, I don't invite close passes (ie. I make sure the driver has to think about how they'll deal with me instead of allowing…"

Ruddager replied to john mills's discussion Cyclists approaching blind crests and corners and overtaking vehicles
"That's a very ambiguous question."

Ruddager replied to john mills's discussion Cyclists approaching blind crests and corners and overtaking vehicles
"I must say, the sorts of apologetic, almost self-loathing ideas portrayed in this discussion are what keeps the attitude towards cyclists in the "dark ages" in Australia."

Ruddager replied to Bill Gehling's discussion Drivers for registration of cyclists
"I was sure that page used to be a parody page ..."

Ruddager replied to Tim Hein's discussion Election: Tim Hein standing for re-election in The Park Ward, Mitcham
"Tim, we're talking about dirt trails that already exist and are only asking that one section designated "walkers only" be re-designated to allow cyclists, and that the unfriendly gate at the bottom of Burnell Drive be removed."

Ruddager replied to Tim Hein's discussion Election: Tim Hein standing for re-election in The Park Ward, Mitcham
"Not to mention that the Unley cycling routes now link the city to the Randell Park trails, creating a continuous path from the hills if done well enough."

Ruddager replied to Tim Hein's discussion Election: Tim Hein standing for re-election in The Park Ward, Mitcham
"On what grounds? Is the opposition reasonable and justified?"

Ruddager replied to Ian Pib's discussion Term request- Miment before a crash
"Dry-cleaner moment?"
Sep 5, 2017
Ruddager replied to Ruddager's discussion The signals are on at Porter street
"I rode over that sand a few times. It's good to see that they're covering their arses with a "cyclists dismount" sign instead of recognising the fact that cyclists don't want to and making it a bit more compact and safe with…"
