After many close calls and recently being hit by a car while riding I have been reading what I can do to limit the risk. Bright clothes, flashing ligths, started recording rides.... none of which seemed to have made much difference. I think this was a great articles with some good tips. Watch car wheels as they are the first to move for example.

Finally, evidence based attitudes instead of the hype and anecdote that seems to drive the pathetic excuse for policy debate here.

I particularly liked the distinction between law breaking cycling being an irritant and a "first world problem", and lawbreaking driving being a real danger that kills people.

The plain clothes police cyclist with camera and radio to patrol car is a good idea. I can't see why this isn't in place in NSW..

Because the unhidden agenda in NSW is to get cyclists off the road.

The attempted gerrymander to get rid of Clover backfired deliciously. Despite the vocal whining published by the Telegraph it seems that a large number of businesses like what Clover is doing to make the CBD a more pleasant and human place because it equals a better business environment too.

I didn't read it in detail but the moaning evident in the Telegraph this morning along the lines of of "4 Moore years of Clover!" was just too funny. I'll admit to a big dose of schadenfruede Smiling

and it looks like that getting the College St cycleway is high on her priority list.

LMAO, bad luck for the State Government and good news for Sydney cyclists.
