Traffic Always Increases with Time - Dave's Law

Posted on August 4, 2016 at 7:30am 1 Comment

So, have You ever worked out how many times you have travelled to work or wherever - I have. Over the years, since I moved into the house I currently live in, I have travelled into the Brisbane CBD where I work, by train or foot or bicycle for around two trips a day, five days a week, 48-weeks a year for twenty-two years now. That's 480 trips per year less a few days for public holidays and other days when I couldn't be bothered to turn up. All up, I've walked and sat on the train or…


Brompton Road Trip to Straddie

Posted on June 28, 2015 at 5:29pm 7 Comments

I thought I would cross post this here because it would be of interest to many. From a bicycle rider viewpoint, North Stradbroke Island is very accessible, inexpensive and a great place to ride whether you are on a hybrid, road bike or mountain bike. There is a fairly decent road shoulder exists across the island and there are many off-road paths and beach riding opportunities too. It's easily doable as a day trip and there is plenty of accommodation there for overnight stayers. It was clear…


CityCycle ... CityCar??

Posted on November 11, 2014 at 7:11am 0 Comments

I was doing a bit of crystal ball gazing over my morning cuppa after reading the news. It seems that someone in the world thinks that France falls out of love with the car. I'm not sure of that because like most other economic things, car sales are cyclic and just when we think we have reached peak car, sales take off again. We've seen it all before. In any case, there are a few…


Secret Ways

Posted on April 8, 2014 at 10:30pm 31 Comments

This started out as some maps to get from the Kedron Brook Shared Path to Ferny Grove Railway Station dodging as much traffic and hills as possible, but my map embedding fails me tonight. It makes me wonder though, we all must know secret ways near where we live ... maybe there is a place for a group so we can all know the secret ways of Brisbane

Anyway, since my embeds failed, here's a picture (the green dashed line is the best way I reckon)…

Hi Doc,

I just figured out how to reply to your comment and for some reason am not restricted by characters like leaving a general comment to all.  Should I have created a blog post or forum rather than a comment when I intially joined the group?

I am not particularly looking for an electric, but I don't know what is around here, so I am open to anything at this stage.  I am very curious where people get their trikes and if there is anywhere in Brissy to try them out before purchasing. So long as I am phyically able to petal (I may need straps to keep my feet positioned correctly), I am happy with a leg powered trike, especially since I really need to keep my legs strong to keep the walking ability I have.

Thanks so much for the welcome

Thanks Doc, it's nice to get positive feedback and I hope to get the time shortly to participate on the Brisbane Cyclist forum. Maybe our lives will cross one of these days and we will be able to have a beer together.

Cheers and safe riding
