"I moved down from Sydney and ride from Brighton to the Little Bourke in the CBD - what Cory suggests is ideal - try to avoid the larger streets and stick to the lanes. Try a GPS tool on the web, or a smartphone if you have one to give you…"
"Yeah - I read about this and found it hilarious - it DOES work and I want to find a lock to try it on - but it only works only on the older types of the Kryptonite D-locks. Though I havent heard about other makes of D-Locks having that…"
"I have two locks - one Kyptonite D-Lock for the rear wheel and a Kryptonite cable lock for the front wheel.
I have had two bikes stolen (both insured though) but after those losses the bike insurance company refused to insure them. I…"
"I have some Fox Dirtpaws for winter - quite warm but not particularly waterproof - though going at 30kmph in the rain I doubt that anything will be able to stay dry - though the idea of rubber surgical gloves under them is kinky and fascinating…"
"Has anyone any info on MTB trails in the Dandenong Ranges?
I took the girl up there on the weekend and seem to have misunderstood the mud-slick-trail aspect of the parks trails - fine for me, but not so awesome for the girl who had never been…"

"Great summary - a bit worrying though. At least I now know who to avoid on quiet cycleways: "where nobody will see YOU at work". Steve.
I like the idea of paint keeping us alive - though there are a lot of white vans and old…"
"Exactly what I do - though I have two flashing on the rear, one big LED up front and a flasher as well.
What really scares the hell out of me is running along the MYT and almost hitting a couple of fixies without lights - just mad - though I…"
"I really enjoy riding the MYT to work - faster, more fun and makes sure that I am awake in the morning!
But, could be worse - the MYT is the best bike corridor I have ever used ad I am going to be sad when we have to revert to the road again…"
"I had one of those tune playing horns - would play sounds like skidding, cars crashing and the like - amusing and made pedestrians laugh - not sure about cars though. I end up treating all cars as if they are driven by sociopaths waiting for…"

Anything else I seem to collect. I keep them because I have a hoarding addiction and think that other people might want them...
What is the best thing about riding?
