This seems the most appropriate thread for this. 19/5/08, 8:55am (approx.): Lonsdale St & Russel St, Melbourne. In my car, turning left (taking in my cycling gear to a new office location for a ride tomorrow). Coming up Lonsdale St I paused for some cyclists to get around a car parked in the cle...

Stop it Murray. If you are going to keep making sense you will never get on talk back radio. You need to be loud and stupid to resonate with the desired audience. And your 'facts' need to be rubbish. Have to agree, it's "one step" thinking you need. I'm angry and I'll blame you :evil: Two...

Time we registered everything that may be a problem :wink: Need bigger registration plates on motorbikes, dogs and cats so we can report them when they are behaving inappropriately! Not good enought that they can "bark and run" :wink: Prams, pedestrians (especially children), all should be...

Saw 4 cyclists riding past stopped trams in Swanston Street around 4:45pm today - took their time, but tram doors were open with stop signs showing :shock:. They dodged around people, but no wonder cyclists get bad press :(

First ride in a month - it's good to be back :D. Lovely weather too. Boulevard was pleasant, but I think the Collingwood farm route is easier overall, and more pleasant. Took a new route into the city (going to Southbank instead of Lonsdale St) that turned out to be pretty good, though coming down C...

how disappointment! :? I (wrongly apparently) thought BV were advocates for all cyclists, not just organisers of rides. Nothing at all about commuting! :cry:

I tend to use the front rings for "range", depending on the terrain, and the rear cluster to "tune" what I need. Low/medium range for getting into/out of Warrandyte (except for going back down the hill I've just climbed :D ), medium/high for the hills until I get into the Heidelb...

Thanks for the suggestions. :) Unfortunately the train isn't much of an option for me :cry: - I suspect I can drive from Nth Warrandyte to Heidelberg or Burke Rd in around 20 - 25 mins, OR to the nearest railway station. Only public transport out my way is the bus, and its a 10-15 min walk from home...

Park and cycle on yarra trail ?

Hoping to get back on the bike this week after a dose of flu :D , but don't think I'm up to my 40km (each way) commute on day one :( . Anybody know a good spot to park near the trail for commuting to the city? I'm thinking Heidelberg might be good for me, leaving a commute of a bit under 20km. Sugge...
