but apparently crazy culture has been around for so long that it's considered normal. And when ever it takes on the status of becoming a tradition ... then the hope for change becomes well nigh impossible in the direction.


But if it can go one way, then surely it can go the other too.... hopefully.

Over here (N.S.W) Victorias completely different. Smooth roads, no lumps or patch evidence. So -=-=-=- "it is possible" !


You probably won't find any road like that in blighty anymore, I think I may have to consider moving, it sounds like heaven

done fast enough. Oh ........ good grief ...... and how lartae was that Smile ... i'll leave it though, i think i must be trying to prove i'm not a coward, i suppose Rolling Eyes. All i can hope for, i suppose, is that i spelt lartae incorrectly. Otherwise hmmm, i don't even want to look (grin)
-=-=-=-=-=-

One way or the other hmmmmm, hehehehe... ummmm
We should always look both ways before we cross the road, shouldn't we (grin) ...

Vic ... heaven ....... hmmmmmmm, well, it ain't goa, thats for sure Wink
And it ain't NZ, and .... hmmmmm , it ain't Tasmania. Some nice country down that way. Often over looked by visitors.


Vic:

All the cops carry guns and there not to shy on that score either .... hmmmmm.
The country side is really just so very pretty though. And true ... for some really wierd reason the contry roads ... are like ... so friggin good. I had to stop the car a few times just to look at it closer. There ya are ... looking at the road ... and the Galaghs are looking at you (grin) .. it is a curiously funny place, even if nothing actually happens at all Smile.

The city suxs though ... run down, streeties, etc etc --- watch out for that one (grin)

But ... as the saying goes, if only i could remember it Rolling Eyes Smile

I think our buses are same as yours, by the sounds of it ... solutions == revolutions == hmmmms == and pieces of 8 Smile (grin).

Always wanted to get over your way one day ... Smile, and it's still on the cards Smile

[RESURRECTION reason=missed it first time round]

jams:
Cyclists don't cause traffic jams where the speed of traffic is at or lower than the speed of the Cyclist. I.E. Town centres, which is where you find most cyclists.

10mph? you 'avin a larff? The only time I drop under 10mph is up steep hills! on the flat, i usually do about 20mph.

road tax:
Cyclists barely cause any wear to the roadsurface (due to some formula in physics for which I wasnt paying attention), d[/RESSURECTION]ue to their low weight, speed and contact area. ergo, our marginal cost to the road maintainer is minimal, and the cost of collecting any contribution would cancel out any payment which was anywhere near the cost incurred.

Also, road tax goes towards the budget of centeral government, whilst all roads used by cyclists are maintained by loal councils, using the council tax.

The fact that councils feel the need to invest in cyclist-"friendly" infrastructure is caused by arrogant and impatient drivers whose behaviour threatens cyclists.

Personally, I feel no need for such infrastructure: it is mainly to protect "blokes on bikes" on their 99 halfords full-bouncers rather than real cyclists.

insurance:

members of both British Cycling (the sport's governing body) and the Cycle Touring Club (the body representing leisure cyclists) have huge third party insurance policies covering accidents involving their members.

If someone damages your vehicle, and it is their own fault, it is their responsibility to pay, whether from their own coffers, or via an insurance company.
