"Logistically, the women's teams would prefer increased media coverage over fancier digs. The accommodation in North Adelaide was actually quite good, mechanics had secure places to work outside the public eye, the food was great and it was easy…"

"hopefully the SA government goes the full hog in 2019 and kicks in for same hotel etc as the blokes get next year.   SAGOV is making some good coin and showed that in 2018 by topping up the winners takings, but it would be good to see the…"

Michael Murray replied to pete davis's discussion Great for Sydney
"Interesting but it depends a bit on what they do. Details seem scant.  SUMMARY Shared cycling / walking paths often don't lend themselves to great commuting.  Dedicated paths are good. "

Michael Murray replied to Bill Gehling's discussion Drivers for registration of cyclists
"You register the cyclist.  So yes I guess that could be called a license.  But it will be a license that you need to display to pander to the "we can't identify them, red light cameras can't identify them, police can't…"

Brooks saddle repair

In case anyone one wants to get a Brooks saddle repaired this was done at Abbottsford Cycles in Melbourne.  They have the Brooks rails and rivets and a leather worker to do the job.  All up around $150 with shipping both ways.  They give you a quote before you send it over.  This is a Brooks Professional Select purchased in 1982.  The rear part of the rail with the rivets in it had completely snapped where the arrows are in the picture. So the sides sort of sagged down.  The front rivets and…See More

Watch out for RAA shuttle bus

There is a fleet of free RAA shuttle buses going between the station and Rundle Road for the Adelaide 500.  They stop on the south side of the road just before the bike path goes onto the footpath in a special stopping area created from what are normally car parks.  When departing they need to pull out and go across all the lanes to make a right hand turn at the East Tce / Rundle Road intersection.  This morning they seemed to just go once they saw a break in the cars and assume the cyclists…See More

Michael Murray replied to stretts's discussion How to Commute Adelaide (tips on riding safe - contributions welcome)
"Yes I find the same thing.  I've never really mastered eye-contact through tinted windows. Best if can work out is if I'm looking at the back of the head that's not good.  Also a great mirror fan.  "

Michael Murray replied to Peter B's discussion "Beg button" frustrations at cycle crossings
"There might be some foot traffic from the new school down there. Assuming they walk up the road to get public transport."

An eclectic mix of cyclists. It takes time to know AC members, and sometimes even gender, when avatars of cycling gear, childhood photos and Cadell. Gradually learn there are mature members, like us. Do you think that your title ever helps when writing cycling advocacy letters and submissions?
