"It depends what you're trying to measure. If you want the Australian average, then it's hard to ignore the NSW numbers. But if you want to look at what's happening in SA, then it makes sense to only include states with a comparable…"

"Actually looking at the report more closely, it should actually say there was a drop between 2011 and 2013, and cycling rates have held steady since 2013. The state-by-state figures are shown below. Note the comment at the bottom: NSW numbers used a…"

"Actually it replaces a Stop sign with a Give Way (at Delaine Ave). The gain is in the separated path, albeit not on a terribly busy road. Going to the city, I prefer a couple of hundred metres of separated path over a slightly more convenient…"

Peter B replied to Wayne B's discussion Footpath or Road?
"I think the ability to ride on footpaths is indispensable. I used to go it occasionally, illegally. The ability to do it legally now makes my commute WAY safer. (Or way more legal!). I often commute through the city and have no wish to risk my life,…"
