'Only' 184 Dutch cycling deaths in 2013? Is this good news?

I was shocked by the stats until I considered some other figures.…

I saw the video of the woman being doored in Collins Street this week & was prompted to respond on a few issues.

It seems that the lane in which she travelled was not an actual official bike lane but termed a "bike refuge " or some similar name. What is implied here; that it doesn't have the same legal status as a bike lane ? It's very narrowness precludes anything like the theoretical level of safety offered by a bike lane. Were I riding on that stretch I'd be…

This is a " don't get me started " comment & I have a bagful accrued over my 40 years as an urban cyclist ( when I first started riding my bike to work my colleagues just assumed I'd done my drivers' licence for being pissed. They figured nobody in their right mind would ride a pushy when they could drive to work ).

Anyway, a gripe from only this morning : 

The scene : Scotchmer Street, North Fitzroy......

There I am riding at a fair clip negotiating the numerous and…

Commuter bike update

10/11/2013 2316km

It's been a year since I last updated this on 27/10/2013.

My speedo died so my distance reference that what was 2298km on my speedo a year go, is now 2316km based off strava. I use strava almost every time I ride so it's pretty good.

A few weeks ago I swapped my 17t rear freewheel for a 16t one. Obviously it's a bit harder up the hills but I go along a bit quicker on the flat without having to spin my legs off.…

Online Shopping ...... ProBikeShop (France) Aussie Buyers BEWARE

Not a happy Aussie Customer Probikeshop. I purchased a set of Mavic Crossride's for my MTB. Didn't last 6 months. Issue with the free hub. To expensive to get them fixed in Australia, to expensive to send back to France for Warranty. Beware Aussie buyers !!!!! Even offered to pay for the cost of the kit (less postage). Weren't interested. Beware !!!!!

Babies and Baum's

Last Thursday we welcomed into the world Oscar John Agnew.  Cycling pedigree yet to be established, but the omens are good...

...Dr in the delivery suit into his bikes, ended up showing me photos of his friend's Baum pained in Porsche Martini Racing colours.  A nice bike, son not too ugly either.

Bongo International

Beware before using Bongo International for routing US only address purchases to Australia. There postage charges are quite expensive and often work out to be more than the item costs (something I found out).

We just finished a five-day spin around Lake Constance, Europe's most popular cycle tour. No great physical challenge, but highly recommended for beautiful scenery, historic towns and safe cycleways!
