Security Warning on web site

Started this discussion. Last reply by Glen Turner Nov 2, 2017. 9 Replies

Memo to admins - I'm getting a security warning telling me not to visit this site (adelaidecyclists.com). I got the warning both at work and at home, on two entirely different systems.Continue

(reposting in a better place)Has there ever been a determined effort to get rid of the need to press the "beg button" at intersections, at least along bikeways?It's pretty frustrating to come up to…Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by chris wolff Dec 1, 2016. 9 Replies

A sad and sobering article, on the inquest into the death of Canberra cyclist Richard Stanton last year. The alloy steering tube "unexpectedly and catastrophically failed". Although his bike wasn't…Continue

Peter B replied to Dan's discussion This is how Adelaide's City Bikeways will say "**** you!" with flowers.
"It was full of pedestrians today! OK that's partly because they're still digging up the footpath further south (just north of Pirie Street). But still, it looks like it'll need some signposting and/or paint on the ground. People seem…"

Peter B replied to Dan's discussion This is how Adelaide's City Bikeways will say "**** you!" with flowers.
"The space just isn't there. The options are (further) narrow the footpath, narrow the bikeway, remove the hotel drop-off zone, or remove a car lane. The relative volumes of car and bicycle traffic tell me that it's better overall to narrow…"

Peter B replied to Rob Wood's discussion Goodwood Station Bridge
"I deleted my reply but now it's here anyway... so you're saying that the money is actually for pedestrian access to Goodwood station, replacing the underpass? Fair enough, but that's not how it's presented in that news article."

Peter B replied to Carlos Kramer's discussion Terrible law breaking cyclists
"I don't think so. Filtering is when the traffic is banked up and can't move. But traffic wasn't banked up: that black car had lots of space in front of it, and it sure looks like it would move forward if there weren't cyclists…"

Peter B replied to Roady's discussion SES Weather Warning ahead of Tour Down Under
"I was thinking about hot weather provisions while watching the cricket. In an ideal world, stages would start earlier than 11 am on very hot (say, over 40) days. It wouldn't effect the starting suburb (Glenelg in this case) because it's…"

Peter B replied to Trevor Hill's discussion Hard to believe....
"I went through today but didn't turn. There was an extra signal for turning buses, but otherwise it was the same for me as before. As I rode on the footpath between North Terrace and Kintore Ave (on the nice wide north side), I noticed one…"

"No one is calling for jail. But yes, any cyclist who takes a selfie of herself while riding on the road deserves a fine."

Peter B replied to Carlos Kramer's discussion Terrible law breaking cyclists
"It looks to me like they are cutting in front of the black car at 0:44, passing between it and the bus. There's empty space in front of that car so presumably it wants to move forward, but can't because of the bicycles cutting in front of…"

Peter B replied to Carlos Kramer's discussion Terrible law breaking cyclists
"Well the organisers will need to rethink how they do it, because the briefings weren't very effective."
Saturday
Peter B replied to Carlos Kramer's discussion Terrible law breaking cyclists
"Well they did break a number of laws. A talking to by the police was a good outcome. Of course a better outcome would have been a brief on road rules before setting out."

Peter B replied to Simpson's discussion Advertiser story motorists and cyclists
"I've probably mentioned this on this forum before, but even if the pedestrian is feeding pigeons, cyclists are required to give way. So if someone doesn't move when I ring my bell, I just ride around slowly. For me the bell is…"
Saturday
Peter B replied to Simpson's discussion Advertiser story motorists and cyclists
"It's slightly old data, but an article a few months ago showed the most fines were for no helmet (2098), followed by no front or no rear lights at night (1038 combined), with all other combined only a few…"

Peter B replied to Equal2lance2's discussion Hay truck takes out TDU finish line
"If that finish line was as high as the legal height for a hay truck (which from a quick google is 4.6m), then that truck was over the legal limit by a good metre. So personally I suspect it was something else, either (a) the finish wasn't high…"

Peter B replied to Trevor Hill's discussion Hard to believe....
"To get a wheel caught in the tram track, you've got to be riding almost parallel to the track as you cross it. This happens on Jetty Road, because the tram track is shared with other vehicles. But I don't see how it could happen in the…"
