Ban Cyclists call — Manly Daily today 20/1

I think this refers to cyclists riding over the Spit Bridge full tilt rather than taking the slower alternate route via Battle Boulevard. But it is a bit confused. In contrast, note the clear-thinking comments by Caroline New, now on the board of BNSW. Go Caroline!

Cars hate to held up even behind a bike going 60km/h. Poor things!


(The photo shows a rider using the rarely used tricky-for-cyclists underpass, nice photo but not so relevant to the article.)

Scenic N to Z ride Tuesday 17 January

Our N to Z ride (Naremburn to Zoo) is one of the more scenic rides we do. It takes in Middle harbour, Balmoral beach, Middle Head, Chowder Bay, Georges Heights (with interesting shortcut through Mosman Oval), down past the Zoo to catch a ferry across to Circular Quay (Opera House, Bridge, Cruise terminal etc) then a ride through the Rocks, and back via the Harbour Bridge and North Sydney to the start.

PS: Used to be the A to Z when it started from Artarmon!

Below are a selection of photos taken by Ken Grundy on the day. Thanks Ken!

Cycling on cross walks

Good on ya Norman! A very sensible letter. Pity other contributors are so pathetic.

More Manly daily letters

All about that bus lane along Pittwater Road and probably continuing along Condamine Street to Burnt Bridge Deviation.
‘Daz’ obviously has no idea. A reply to Daz was posted today.

Great ride Tony, two new experiences for me, Cockatoo island and Ballast Point. Both fantastic.

Michael in the Manly again – Dec 9.

Hmmm. I don’t know about being actually easy it is to ride from the Northern Beaches to the CBD. The Spit or Roseville bridge is a bit of a put-off. For me anyway.

Wind powered bike or “Whike”. Great for sailors!
