A friend just went for a spin out to Wynnum and said they had never seen so many angry people, and that it would appear the 1m rule doesn't apply out there. I've only ridden out that way a handful of…Continue

"So, to the two David's... I'm going to try an afternoon version of the ride we did today. Leaving town at four... probably getting home about 6:30. If it goes OK, that might be an alternative for next week? "

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. I'm struggling to find a detailed link, but it would appear that it won't be possible for a manufacturer to get a 5 star rating for their vehicle unless an effective autonomous braking system is STANDARD. Given selling a car that's 4 star is difficult, manufacturers will be forced to fit the systems. I can't find a detailed release.. but it clearly…See More

"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. "

"Sounds good.. let me know.  I think it's more of a MTB ride but if you want to try it on your CX bike I'd be keen to watch. I'll get my fly12 mounted. :o Mind you not that there is anything really that bad or technical. "

Steve,

 

I might take you up on your very kind offer to try and set my new clipless shoes up properly.  Are you around on the weekend?  I am happy to ride to your place, of course. Or, if you prefer, you can come to mine in Newmarket.  Please let me know!

Thanks, Super Steve :)  Had a quick ride this morning - last for a week unless I can work a miracle!  It was dark-ish when I left and my new sunglasses performed nicely as it got lighter.  Love having good gear!

G'day Steve, long time no see.  The flying's taken a dive so to speak?

We must catch up....

Hi Steve!

 

Just wanted to say thanks again for showing me the way this morning!

 

I've had another look at the map and it's all seeming a bit more familiar now.

 

Let me know what you find out about the lights.

 

Nice to meet you as well :) :) see you later in the week.

Good onya, Big Steve. The CBDBUG is working hard on the difficulties of commuters from the inner north. If you're inner inner you might be one of the few lucky ones inside the chaos of the airport link construction etc. If you aren't on the BUG email list yet, send one off to convenors@CBDBUG.org.au
