Am signing up for the Coota Haycarters weekend (roll around Saturday, win Sunday is the usual plan - which has never come off btw) and was curious if the Club is taking the trailer and bus for the weekend? Tx Peter B.

North Sydney commute

Hey guys
Trying to come up with a safe/simple way for my girlfriend to ride her road from Forest Lodge to Linfeild.
Pretty happy for the most part, but looking for ideas on how to tackle North Sydney to connect up with the start of the Epping Road cycle way. Come off the bridge and head up miller street? Or head more East down to ben Boyd? How do you do it?

Sydney to Brisbane... or the other way?

I'm coming to Australia (first time) in late September and am bringing my touring bike. I'm interested in riding from Sydney to Brisbane. I have a few questions:

1. What about the prevailing winds at that time, would North to South be best or should I start in Brisbane and cycle back?

"We don't want cyclists' money –that is not why we increased fines for high-risk and downright stupid behaviour. These changes are about changing behaviour and improving safety.”
– The Honourable Duncan Gay

It’s time to load our rifles and take aim at the state government.

Now that I’ve had a chance to read through the proposed changes to cycle laws enforceable as of 1st March, I thought I’d take an opportunity to construct a response to it with my own thoughts of the matter. I do so for two reasons:

If anyone was on the roads and running a camera around General Liberator San Martin Drive early last Sunday, your footage may be helpful.

Commute Dee Why to North Sydney

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I haven't been on this site for a couple years now but I was hoping you guys might have some ideas/tips for me.

I've had enough with getting the bus to work in North Sydney, So im considering riding my bike to work (Avanti Inc Internal Hub 8 gears) Any back street tips or just what google maps suggests? Any other tips or ideas would be great.

Has anyone checked out how Ghania and Serrata have held up?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Are they in decent rideable condition where one can ride without causing any trail damage?

Ghania in particular seemed to drain very well after a downpour.

Convert roadie to commuter

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I am looking to convert an old roadie into a commuter bike.
Can I put 27.5" mtb tubes and slick tyres on a road bike.
Any suggestions re: handlebars? I don't think drops are appropriate for commuting (imho)

Any other suggestions/advice welcome.

Thanks

Justin

Blue & Red Rear Light on the Bike - Legal or Not?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I notice Ay-Up sells both Blue and Red caps for the lights to be used as a rear light.

www.ayup-lights.com/index.php?route=product/prod...

I was thinbking that one blue and one red would possibly get more clearance from cars, but wondered if it was illegal?

Anyone know???

Mudgee race weekend has been cancelled

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

A popular event on the racing calendar,Mudgee has been cancelled this year. This is a shame as I know quite a few members were looking forward to this race weekend. Due to lack of support by way of volunteers another event is gone hopefully not forever.

Hi all, Can anyone recommend a good cycling route between North Sydney and Parramatta that follows a combination of designated cycleways and relatively quiet or cycle friendly back streets. Any suggestions appreciated.
