Profile Information

What bikes do you ride?
Giant road
When do you ride?
Weekends, Commute
..perhaps some more information about yourself for your profile page
I ride to replace car journeys, to avoid parking and to keep fit. Because I want to just use the bike whenever I can (and for other reasons) I don't bother with the sporty gear and click ons. I try to enjoy riding rather than always pushing for faster times, but I totally understand why others do.

Saw your comment about road debris. Most bicycle lanes are on arterial roads (DPTI) or in the City (ACC). Contact either:
-- Traffic Hazards, Transport, by email DPTI.EnquiriesAdministrator@sa.gov.au but if an urgent hazard like broken glass, phone 1800 018 313 (24-hr)
-- ACC, city@adelaidecitycouncil.com
