Fooled by the weather radar

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jilden May 30. 12 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 Dave M Apr 24. 7 Replies

The question says it all! Today a police officer cautioned me. (He said this applies to footpaths, not shared paths).I tried to politely say that isn't how I'd seen the law presented, but I let it go…Continue

Peter B replied to Henry's discussion Bicycle lane question
"No, you do not have to ride in a bicycle lane outside the hours of operation. If you are fined you should be able to challenge it. There is a law about keeping as left as practicable on a road with no marked lanes - though that applies to motor…"

"It's very good normally, but only for proper rain and not for the evening drizzle in Adelaide which is really a form of fog rather than rain."

Dave M replied to Peter B's discussion Fooled by the weather radar
"The sort of evening drizzle we get fairly often in Adelaide comes from a soupy fog that forms as moist air comes off the sea and condenses. It is closer to fog than 'proper' rain which comes from clouds formed of ice crystals at higher…"
