Brisbane cyclists are seeing an increase in the (ab) use of thumbtracks. With this information going on national news, the tactics could easily spread to other cities.…Continue

"Well at least they are building things. Rode up and down Rundle St today - happy to see the road works on Frome. What's the chance they will have a review a couple of years after it is finished - bah!"

"Originally state govt deadline for ACC to complete both bikeways was 31-Dec-2018.Now Frome Bikeway will not be completed until mid or late 2019.Afterwards start east-west bikeway, and might not be completed until 2020 or later."

Daniel replied to Wayne B's discussion Flinders & Franklin to be killed off?
"Sorry for reviving this old thread. It sounds like the bikeway isn’t killed off, but it has been delayed for years! https://indaily.com.au/news/2018/05/24/new-govt-maintain-city-bikeways-deal/ Pretty amazing what one petition with 8…"

"I was done guessing, so I telepathically told Ross that location and he went to check it out for me.... ;-) It's always a very busy corner, lots of birds, stray dogs, stray old people"

Wayne B replied to rossmg's discussion WITWIMB
"I can only keep guessing so my best bet will be to designate Ross to ride down there and check out all the bridges ;-) Ridley Bikes is running a WITWIMB competition to promote their Fenix model for the Belgian cobblestone classics. Every week…"

"I feel there's a hint in that sandwich comment, but I'm stumped. Further east? There's a bollard / pole in the middle of the path at the dirt track that heads to Gorge Rd, that's as far east as you can go. But the trail there…"

"3rd option, bridge between Camino Dr & Torrens Ave near Blamey Reserve in Kidman Park, there is a toilet block on the northside"

Wayne B replied to rossmg's discussion WITWIMB
"not on the main trail, to my knowledge there is no part of the main trail that has a bollard in the middle of it. So one of the exit/entry points. 2 ideas: - the next bridge west of the South Rd underpass, at McDonnell Ave Hindmarsh. - there's…"

Wayne B replied to Bill Gehling's discussion Drivers for registration of cyclists
"I walked into a Holden dealership yesterday.... (no that's not the start of a joke, or perhaps it is) We've owned 3 Opel Astra so if I do buy a new car, Holden it is. Since they've finally decided to replace the Commodore with a…"

"Heather, you'd be surprised how many city dwellers in Europe have cars. We did (and probably will again soon), and compared to Adelaide, we lived somewhere near the Convention Centre (around the corner from the central station & a park,…"

"Yes Sam, ADL is an urban sprawl, as are most cities in Australia, and I agree with the need for urgency. I think Australian cities will start to loose their high liveability rankings if they don't start building the active shared transport…"

"both times I've looked at this video it hasn't been extremely busy, which it can be. Love Amsterdam, and I've never even cycled there. The interesting thing, I think, about comparisons Australia (& other car-centric…"

"Peter, a lot may have been lost in translation, I didn't look in much detail at the English pages. I did note on the #2, the Police report, that I would have translated the first recommendation different (i.e. they recommended untangling the…"

Wayne B replied to Katie Gilfillan's discussion Election and cycling: what's being offered and what shoud be offered?
"Peter, the reason I find it good to disagree with (smart) people is that it makes me think harder :-)... so, A quick google search in English proved my point of the 'separate paths brigade'. All the results that came up were local stuff…"

"Peter I would have seen it, I always pay attention to what you say (even though we may disagree frequently... that's actually good though). Your follow up question is dealt with below the initial research. the most recent I read a while back…"

Wayne B replied to Katie Gilfillan's discussion Election and cycling: what's being offered and what shoud be offered?
"Sam I completely agree with you. I think ADL, the large area as you point out, is small enough that most people could go about their daily commutes mostly by bike. In that case, there would be much less other traffic on the roads and there…"
