"Thanks everybody.  I guess I was just confused as to what the law was  if I am cycling in the extreme left of the right hand lane and a car overtakes me in the LH lane.  I am happy that cars are advised to give me the usual spacing…"

"The actual regulation hasn't been changed, and there aren't any changes that are yet to take effect. I think you're straining to read The Driver's Handbook like it is legislation rather than advice. The advice related to…"

"Michael, are you basing your statement on:“You must not overtake: on the left, except: if the vehicle is turning right or making a U-turn from the centre of the road, and is giving a right-turn signal”If not, which statement? A situation…"

Michael Murray replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"Cycling past tonight it looks like the diversion off to the left, up onto the footpath and across at the lights has been opened up.  Don't know if they have fixed the beg button as I was cycling the other way.  On the other side the…"

"Interesting.  I wonder if it just comes out really slowly as I came through around 10ish which looks like if was after you and it was out but when I pressed it in it seemed to want to stay there. "

Michael Murray replied to Trevor Hill's discussion Well, that's handy!
"I looked on their website and they aren't advertising it yet.  However with that flash logo and signage in the picture you would imagine they are planning more than one.   Maybe they will have a  change of name to  "On…"

"Those little packs of Dine would be great on a long ride.  Easily digested and all the fish oil builds up the joints.   Seriously this is a great idea.  I assume it will spread out to the other OTR's.  The bike tool stands…"

Michael Murray replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"I drove down here this morning and they have put on the lane markings.  The two lanes that approach the intersection move over to the left at the intersection to make room for a third lane on the right, presumably a right turn only lane.…"

An eclectic mix of cyclists. It takes time to know AC members, and sometimes even gender, when avatars of cycling gear, childhood photos and Cadell. Gradually learn there are mature members, like us. Do you think that your title ever helps when writing cycling advocacy letters and submissions?
