"I'm on the train, but there's a white truck parked in the clear way bike lane this morning just outside the footy oval. Because apparently if you put your hazard lights on you can stop wherever you want."

"A Brompton wheel is 42cm in diameter. That makes the path through Burnie Brae park around 3.6m wide. Note the magic white line which stops pedestrians inadvertently straying on to the bike side of the path in the same way it stops cars entering bike…"

"We've spent 220 million on bicycle projects over 8 years that are actually only worth about 30 million... :o It seems to me that there is a lot of gold plating being done by BCC (land street tunnel etc), but only when it suits them."
