The Brisbane City Council "Bike Budget"

I have speculated that Facebook is a forum killer for a while now, so I post this shameless cross-post to even the score a bit. I was browsing through the Brisbane City Council Budget and there are a few notable items for active transport that have been festering for many years. There will probably be many other things hidden in roadworks and intersection upgrades too as bicycle lanes are frequently added to these projects - but they will only be found when the DA drawings are released.I…See More

"Yes, that looks better and not too much longer. I guess if I lived there I'd still use Witton Rd both ways (SIGH) and on days when I didn't feel like it, go all the way to Sylvan Road and via the back streets of St Lucia."

"Going via Centenary cycleway might take longer, but less stressful? Sherwood Road through Rocklea doesn't have proper footpaths, let alone a bikeway. If you're brave, ride on the road. I wish they would build a wide and direct shared path…"

New convert to folding bikes

Posted by Dunsobarky on August 25, 2017 at 7:42pm 4 Comments

Moved into a new but smaller apartment with no garage space. No place for the big bikes so sold them, including my pride and joy, the ebike and bought a folder. It's a Giant Expressway 1 selected after much deliberation and assessments. Would love a Brompton but couldn't justify the cost differential. It's great fun on a folder, loving my daily commute.

Took a few k's to get used to the ride but now its second nature and such great fun. It's not fast but it zips along nicely. There's…

Commuter Advice = Redcliffe to the Valley

Posted by Angel Maher on February 24, 2017 at 4:57pm 3 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
