Paul May replied to heather's discussion shared paths
"Personally, as a pedestrian on shared paths, I loathe being rung at.  It feels like "get out of my way".  Personally I only ring when I come up behind someone filling the whole path or behaving erratically.  Everyone else I…"

Paul May replied to Savvas's discussion New Greenways Anyone?
"Sam, My criticism of 'Greenways' is by no means meant to denigrate how useful these routes are.  I've just always seen them as being the politically easy routes, and they have often been promoted as being 'following…"

Paul May replied to Savvas's discussion New Greenways Anyone?
"Sam, The problem with this is that the 2-tier provision just ends up with 2 lots of sub-standard provision.  Shared use is very often just a footpath with a fancy name, and the junctions are always rubbish.  Paint on a road shared with…"

Paul May replied to Savvas's discussion New Greenways Anyone?
"The first problem with this whole question is the presumption that new cycling routes will have to be 'Greenways'.  Whilst much of the first set of Greenways are good, safe, fast and direct, there is a limit to how many potential…"

Paul May replied to Peter B's discussion Fooled by the weather radar
"I have a complete change of clothes in my desk drawer, just in case...  plus spare shoes."

Paul May replied to Peter B's discussion Fooled by the weather radar
"It always seems to me that light drizzle either doesn't show up on the radar, or looks like this - odd patches of white.  Not really enough to bother with waterproofs anyway..."

Paul May replied to Jilden's discussion Hart St Semaphore works
"Of course the driveways excuse is a massive cop-out.  Protected cycle-ways are ubiquitous in the Netherlands, and they have both drives and car parking. I've already given feedback - hence my finding out about the 1000 character limit the…"

Paul May replied to Jilden's discussion Hart St Semaphore works
"The more I look at the detail of this, the more I dislike it.  Or at least, the more I realise that it could be done much better: I appreciate that the westbound cycle lane is now protected by parking - this is as it should be, though it's…"

Paul May liked Sterling R's discussion Freecyclists - Ride to end mandatory helmet law.

Paul May replied to Savvas's discussion Let's Make 'Cycle Park 'n' Ride' a Real Issue in the Coming SA Elections!
"It totally depends on what kind of bike you have.  Many people in high cycling countries ride basic old bikes.  If I was just riding the 2km to my local station I would probably use my old hybrid if I didn't trust the…"

Paul May replied to Savvas's discussion Let's Make 'Cycle Park 'n' Ride' a Real Issue in the Coming SA Elections!
"Bill, I know it's just an anecdote, but when my wife (who rides a bike every 1-2 years typically) had to go to the city recently, she asked me if there was anywhere to lock a bike at our local station (it's about 2km away), as the car park…"

Paul May replied to Roger Gillies's discussion Great Southern Bike Trail - Thoughts Please
"Coming from the UK, where major reservoirs are usually used for recreation (sailing kayaking, cycling, walking etc), I was gobsmacked that you can hardly get close to any South Australian water infrastructure when I arrived.  I can't see…"

Paul May replied to DB's discussion Beach to Mawson Lakes
"I'm not sure if the path from the end of Magazine Road is open at the moment (it's very good gravel as I remember), but there is a temporary path running from Henschke Street that joins it further north.  The section of the path near…"

"The UK doesn't have it."

Paul May replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"Remembering what this crossing is like during Fringe and Clipsal, it will be impossible to navigate on a bike during these periods.  Why is it that when traffic engineers don't have a clue about cyclists they just mix them with…"

Paul May replied to Tim Hein's discussion Election: Tim Hein standing for re-election in The Park Ward, Mitcham
"Sorry, have I understood correctly?  Are you saying that the reason that Blackwood roundabout is going to go from 'unpleasant and difficult' for cycling to 'suicidal' is something to do with your advocacy?  With…"
