On my run this afternoon I noticed that all the street trees along Lytton Rd were marked like this. I wasn't aware of plans for any roadworks along here, but perhaps something is happening... Given…Continue
"I've added a couple of pics from last night to our CBD Grid Supporters album. I have a good one of Thea and Daz too, which I need a caption for. Perhaps simply:
Thea and Daz support protected bike lanes in the CBD "because it's just…"
"Well that one is actually in Council's bikeway budget this year:
Moreton Bay: Viola Pl to Schneider Rd, Eagle Farm $575,000
Mind you, Mitch tells me it has been in the budget before but hasn't materialised.
I'm also keen to see…"
"Response I received when I wrote to TMR regarding the Port cycleway was:
PBPL has been in consultation with Brisbane City Council and Department of Transport and Main Roads regarding the connection of planned extension along the motorway to the…"
"Hm - a tad confusing, as I understand that the projects are 50% funded by the state government, and 50% by council - so I'm not sure about the $2million awarded to BCC.
I've also been trying to find out how (if) this project might fit with…"
"Thanks. I always find it bizarre that Council go on and on about their great bikeways (many of which are just stencils on the road), but occasionally they do something really useful - and do absolutely nothing to publicise it."
"I've written a bit about the strategic importance of this link on the EaST BUG website here: http://eastbug.org.au/?p=184
As with all bike infrastructure, this link is only as good as what it connects too - and currently it's pretty…"
"I suggest that anyone who has ever ridden a bike along the bicentennial bikeway should write a submission requesting details of the traffic management plan that will address the safety and convenience of people riding bicycles on bicentennial…"
"This story has been very confusing - not least because Giffin Park is in Coorparoo rather than Norman Park, and there is no Venice St in either Norman Park or Coorparoo.
There was apparently an arrest that…"
"Hi Cameron, It's great that you're keen to get involved in bike advocacy.
Yes, sending the suggestion through would be good - put will possibly be brushed aside. It would (hopefully) help to carry a bit more weight if it came via a BUG -…"
"This is a good point Coxy. Because we're playing catch-up and only building infrastructure once the demand for it is obvious, it is only serving commuters. There were huge numbers of cyclists on the western freeway bike path before the bridge…"
"What type of railing will it have?
Most people are OK at keeping left on the Story Bridge - even before the jump-proof railing is installed, so hopefully it will be fine.
Damn I wish this bridge was there when I was commuting that way every day. I…"
I have a collection. Mr Jamis and Mr Bianchi are roadies. Mr Big (a Giant) is my trusty commuter. The Plasma is my slick TT bike, and Scotty is for the dirt. Mr Paconi has retired to the wind trainer, while the lovely Miss Melon is the youngest and most carefree. She loves going shopping or out visiting friends.
