Autonomous braking is coming!

I thought this was too significant to put in the normal news section. I've just become aware that ANCAP are changing their rating protocols.

"Another off road commute for me. This time with even less on road! This route is about 35-40k, and probably nearly 30 of it is either off road entirely or on a bike path. "

Commuter Advice = Redcliffe to the Valley

Posted by Angel Maher on February 24, 2017 at 4:57pm 2 Comments

Hi All!!


I'm moving to Redcliffe soon and would like to explore the notion of riding to the Valley from Redcliffe 

I commute only to work - not a road rider on weekend etc

Is anyone able to advise how long it might take and if it's safe to ride along the wetlands etc early in the mornings or when it gets dark in the winter...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
