I came down from Sydney and tried the blue bikes for the first time. Good bikes (better than the Copenhagen ones), good system - shame about the helmet laws.

Here's how it looks so far:…

Weird question, I know, but I've had it, and I've found the cure!
The answer is...build one!

Just giving a plug for someone on twitter I follow (@will_watt), who takes a photo on Melbourne's streets, once a day.
This time around, he snapped a photo of a fast cyclist.http://www.melbournestreet.net/index.php?showimage=124

My tightarse single speed was stolen a while ago. It was actually my favourite bike. It was stolen from the front of my local boozery on busy Fitzroy Street in St Kilda. I was bloody angry at the time.
Last Friday about 1215 or so, I was sitting in a truck, in heavy traffic in Chrurch Street Richmond near the Swan Street intersection when a ghost appeared.
