Security Warning on web site

Started this discussion. Last reply by Glen Turner Nov 2. 9 Replies

Memo to admins - I'm getting a security warning telling me not to visit this site (adelaidecyclists.com). I got the warning both at work and at home, on two entirely different systems.Continue

"Beg button" frustrations at cycle crossings

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dave M May 19. 5 Replies

(reposting in a better place)Has there ever been a determined effort to get rid of the need to press the "beg button" at intersections, at least along bikeways?It's pretty frustrating to come up to…Continue

Canberra rider died due to bike failure

Started this discussion. Last reply by chris wolff Dec 1, 2016. 9 Replies

A sad and sobering article, on the inquest into the death of Canberra cyclist Richard Stanton last year. The alloy steering tube "unexpectedly and catastrophically failed". Although his bike wasn't…Continue

"Well... there's no separation or green paint there. Possibly an honest mistake, made easier to do by confusing signage."

"Sorry Wayne, but I disagree with pretty well every word of that :).  You say "stop being vulnerable", but we ARE vulnerable, you can't deny the realities of physics. So separate bikeways are nothing to do with subordination,…"

Peter B replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"Possibly. But in general, I think there's no need to force inexperienced riders onto a busy road where there's lots of room for an off road shared path. I regularly do this through parklands in the direction of my commute (e.g. Anzac…"

"But there is also a sealed path parallel to Rundle Road, taking cyclists to the East Terrace / Rundle Road intersection. (Though I think access at the Dequetteville Terrace end is blocked at the moment by construction work). In fact, I think the…"

Peter B replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"Once it leaves the road it's a path, not a bicycle lane; so you're free to claim the lane legally. IMHO. Rundle Street is one lane in each direction - plus a bike lane in the door zone. Looking at Paul's videos (where he wisely…"

"Maybe I'm in the minority but I like it. Far safer than a bicycle lane in between two car lanes."

Peter B replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"What is the status of the paths on the parklands which run parallel to Rundle Road on either side? Do they enter/exit properly at the East Terrace and Dequetteville Terrace intersections? I always prefer separated path to a bit of white paint on the…"

Peter B replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"I'm happy to be corrected, but I don't see how the presence of an "end bicycle lane" sign 100+ metres before it actually ends, affects my interpretation (that it's two lanes merging as per ARR 149). Also the lane markings…"

Peter B replied to Dan's discussion Bike lane termination at new Rundle Rd/East Tce intersection
"I imagine it's like any other lane merge. Whoever is behind gives way. So personally, I'd claim the lane in the left lane, and stay in that lane, doing a hook turn if turning right at East Terrace. (Actually, if turning right, I'd…"

Peter B replied to Wayne B's discussion Flinders & Franklin to be killed off?
"Thanks for that. Relevant points: * There's nothing to support the petition's claim that 90% of on-street parking will be lost. And if some angle parking is lost it's no big deal, at least at the eastern end (Pulteney to Hutt St),…"

Peter B replied to Wayne B's discussion Flinders & Franklin to be killed off?
"Thanks for that. But it seems to only directly address parking on Frome St. (Where it says it reduces by 20%, but I'm not sure whether that's 20% of pre-bikeway levels or 20% of 2016 levels). But that document says there's going to be…"

Peter B replied to Wayne B's discussion Flinders & Franklin to be killed off?
"Maybe they're right about losing their outdoor dining area. Judging by this photo from Google Street View, a Frome Street style bikeway would go right through their outdoor dining area, which would be a pity. "
