Hi Rob,

Welcome to Adelaide Cyclists. Noticed that you have joined the AC group Commuters. If you cycle in the city, check out Adelaide BUG. I coordinate four AC groups with emphasis on improving cycling conditions: Adelaide BUG, Prospect BUG, Look For Cyclists and Vote For Cyclists. There is more info in the introduction on each group web page.

Cheers, Heather
