"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"Heather, add that most movements by people are within a 30 minute cycling range.
Savvas, I second that! (not that I'm voting in SA anymore)
However, Katie (& Mark Parnell) are these promises costed, without a need for raising taxes? (not…"
"Savvas, where are you getting your information from...
"research from around the world universally tells us this. They would prefer to ride a combination of off-road (or physically separated) bike paths and occasional traffic-quietened…"
"I'm not sure that going to the ABC was a great idea, I would advise avoiding Norton Summit Road for the next month or so.
In addition to the copycat issue, a more constructive form of engagement on a local level would be more likely to…"
"MHL, and how Sydney deals with it....
I was sitting on a bench in Hyde Park, next to St James station looking towards the cathedral, waiting for my wife for a Friday night dinner date (it's one of those things you do to get to and keep a 25yr…"
"@Ken the Dane... a bit slow aren't ya ;-)
At those speeds, in Belgium, still didn't and wouldn't bother with a helmet. However, have to admit I hate and avoid traffic lights like the plague, so for a good ride I actually put the bike…"
"It's not the type of product I'm interested in, but if it was then the camera specs would have me thinking more along the lines of 'would be interested in a test ride when it's released' than 'worth backing on…"
"The price doesn't sound too unfair, provided that the helmet and the cameras are good quality.
Not for me though. I prefer a lighter helmet and using the bike to provide a more steady camera platform."
