It potentially could happen to any of us

On the 2nd January of this  year,  a friend of mine Steve Holmes had a heart attack whilst cycling up Mt Gravatt Hill. Unfortunately despite the best efforts of a number of people.  Steve passed away on the 8th January as a result of the hearrt attack.Steve was a pretty fit guy he trained regularly and looked after himself. I guess the reality is that this can potentially happen to any one us and maybe we can alll learn from such an terrible event to regularly go to the doctor for a check up,…See More

"LOL.  Of course, it was mostly your Wolverine with the handlebar bag that I recognised.  If you had been on a different bike I would have been none the wiser. And I always take the lane at the end of McDonald Road there, on my way home."

The Rise of Uber and Lyft - safer for cyclists in the long term

Posted by Peter Cutajar on December 31, 2016 at 9:43am 1 Comment

Uber - Lyft definitely has made an impact on the declining Taxi industry as we know it. (A surcharge from Uber going to the Taxi companies to recoup there losses)

I am not sure for certain but would assume these service companies having vehicles on the road driven by there owners is a plus for cyclists, and because of the ratings system the good drivers are rated and a standard is maintained unlike the Taxi industry with very low standards.

Hopefully over time this will benefit… Continue

Brisbane Valley Rail Trail News Update

Posted by Paul Heymans on October 3, 2016 at 7:55am 0 Comments

It’s now 8 months since the announcement about funding for completion of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail by the Queensland Government in January of this year.

Whilst there was early optimism that the project would be completed by late 2016/early 2017, it seems we may have been looking through the wrong end of the telescope.

The wheels of government turn very slowly, but that does not mean to say they have not been turning.

Just to remind everyone, the deal the Queensland…

Critical Mass and why we need it now

Posted by Peter Cutajar on August 19, 2016 at 9:46pm 2 Comments

critical mass - we need it now more than ever - bikes, card players, gypsies etc. even room for unused greyhounds Nuns and grandmas to come along and be a part of Bne the new world city- San Francisco style. For it to happen it needs to be a social media spectacle extravaganza.

I know all the nanny state peeps will be negative but it will build confidence and that is what we need to be shown as a relevant part of soceity - using the safety bicycle as a way to limit our footprint and not… Continue

Traffic Always Increases with Time - Dave's Law

Posted by Doc Embrey on August 4, 2016 at 7:30am 1 Comment

So, have You ever worked out how many times you have travelled to work or wherever - I have. Over the years, since I moved into the house I currently live in, I have travelled into the Brisbane CBD where I work, by train or foot or bicycle for around two trips a day, five days a week, 48-weeks a year for twenty-two years now. That's 480 trips per year less a few days for public holidays and other days when I couldn't be bothered to turn up. All up, I've walked and sat on the train or…
