The morning rant - what pisses me off about other cyclists

Summer may or may not be over, but that's no excuse to have a rant, which is what I feel I really need to do this morning.The intersection at Sylvan Road gets quite congested at times between 630am and 730am with many cyclists all waiting at the red light.What really shits me, and yes I said that word because it's how I feel about this situation, is that when there are already about 10 people all gathered together waiting for the light to turn green, I will fall back a few metres so as to NOT…See More

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
