"Interesting that you mention hindsight and white shorts together  : ) Anyhoo, I was all set for it but when I woke up early the weather looked foul so I pulled out, let my mates know and went back to sleep.  Those mates all went and did…"

"It looks like they are shutting down Gilchrist Avenue to bikes while they widen the ICB. The path at the southern end that links the dead end to the bike path is blocked by a porta-cabin, and they want us to use the bike path that runs alongside the…"

RobertL replied to Ruediger Landmann's discussion Cop insisted on seeing drivers licence
"Interesting. I often ride without my driver's licence. If I'm going on a group ride, I'll only have a credit card and a go card that might be any sort of ID. I wonder what that particular cop would do in that situation?"
