Hi Scott

I checked my blog.  It did refer to Kelly Henderson, not Kelly Vincent.

Hi Scott if that's the case and they'd like the GW Jersey the need to enter this week. If you can find out that would be good.

Thanks.

Hi Scott,
I sympathise re the disconnected bikedirect route in your area. I do not cycle there so have provided some authorities that you could contact. Let me know how it goes.
Cheers, Heather

Scott, I have a spare of pedals with toe clips that came with my bike that I will bring out for you on at.

Hey Scott,

I have a set of pedals with toe clips attached that I will bring along next week (meant to today, but forgot until I saw u this morning) You are most welcome to give them a go. I think that you would find them extremely helpful, especially on the Bupa ride with those hills :)

places like Adams Road, Craigmore where the pedestrian crossings by the schools protrude through the parking lane almost to the solid line on the right side of the bike lane.

Scott, can you provide clear photos of this? I am prepared to discuss with the pertinent authority. Persuaded DPTI to remove the concrete obstructions on Fitzroy Terrace. Doubt that I could persuade the local council to do the same for the main street in Gawler that were deliberately added later. Heather, Coordinator of Adelaide BUG
