DJ replied to David Gregory's discussion Walmer Street Bridge
"I recall that the bridge was closed for major structural works about two years ago,for at least a few months.When it was finally reopened the press release was to the effect that the bridge was now structurally sound and would be for the next…"

DJ replied to David Gregory's discussion Walmer Street Bridge
"The closure surprised me this morning on the way into the CBD. No detour signs, no information as to why the bridge was closed or for how long it would be closed. Imagine the outcry if a major road used by cars was shut off without notice . I turned…"

DJ replied to Stephen's discussion Can't believe I've been putting up with helmet hair all these years for only some marginal decrease in the likelihood of injury...
"Nick, the only mistake is taking the time to read your irrational posts."

DJ replied to Stephen's discussion Can't believe I've been putting up with helmet hair all these years for only some marginal decrease in the likelihood of injury...
"Regardless of the law, why would you wear a helmet ? My wife's recent experience is relevant. Out of the saddle, pedalling hard, leaning forward, 60 kmh, chain comes off, over the handlebars, head first into the bitumen. The result ? Bumps and…"

DJ replied to Tonzo's discussion Take care out there people
"Slowing down ( touching the brakes ) may have caused the fall."

DJ replied to Harry Tana's discussion Experience from hell
"I can't see the attraction with riding along Beach Road.It is vastly over rated.Traffic light every few minutes, crowded with inexperienced riders, almost dead flat and boring until Mornington.It's far too busy with other cyclists to be…"

DJ replied to Chris Rhoades's discussion Cycle Helmet Law - Need help with imminent court case
"The infringement will be heard in a Magistrates Court so there will be no precedent set in that court in relation to this sort of prosecution as the decision of one magistrate is not binding upon the other, and the cases are not reported in any…"

DJ replied to Chris Rhoades's discussion Cycle Helmet Law - Need help with imminent court case
"The prosecutor does not need to establish that there are helmets available in Australia that will fit. At law the only issue is whether there was a breach of the regulations or not ie.was a complying helmet being worn at the time of the infringement…"

DJ replied to Heather's discussion Too many jerseys? Rarely worn? - donation ideas?
"I find the organised ride jerseys quite effective for cleaning my chain."

DJ replied to Pete Gordon's discussion Long distance riding...am I totally dreaming?
"As you are starting from such a low fitness base ( compared to the level you will need ) you may need to build up to riding 100km per day for several days in a row in your training.It's generally not the first day of a tour that is tiring, but…"

DJ replied to Heather's discussion Sick of riding solo on Beach Road?
"You may find that many of those solo riders are experienced riders and ride solo for a reason.When they race they wear a number but when they are training they want to get the workout they planned to do and not the workout that a random unorganised,…"

DJ replied to David Handley's discussion Doncaster to CBD
"Don't get onto Johnston St. Assuming you are on the Yarra Trail, stay on it  - or go the length of Kew Blvd ( safer riding on that than the Yarra Trail)  - then back onto the Yarra Trail and into the CBD, coming out at Federation…"

DJ replied to Ben Malcolm's discussion 3 Peaks Challenge 2011.
"Ben, how did you find the 3 Peaks on the weekend ? What did you think of the back of Falls ?"
Mar 17, 2011
DJ replied to Ben Malcolm's discussion 3 Peaks Challenge 2011.
"Ben, I was not having a go at you but at Bicycle Victoria.The reason is that they marketed the ride to Around the Bay in a Day type riders many of which had no hope of completing it, regardless of the weather.It is a much harder ride than the AAC as…"
