"Interesting, perhaps I should temper my speed aspirations. I'm working on minimising unnecessary braking, being more aerodynamic (flat bar road bike), and maintaining more speed up the hills, but perhaps the stopping and starting will be the…"

Help planning a safe route Chermside to city

Hi all,I'm considering getting a bike to commute to work, however I haven't ridden a bike for 20 years and I'll only consider it if I can avoid busy/stressful/dangerous roads.I'll be starting at 7th Brigade Park (just to the NE of the Chermside shopping centre) and travelling to Town Hall (City Hall?) in the city on Ann st. How would I go about figuring out a good route? Happy to ride a few kms further if it means a safer route. I'll be riding between 6-7am, coming home after 7pm.Any advice…See More
