The beautiful south
there's idiot cyclists,pedestrians and motorists,people just have to cop on a bit and realise they're sharing a space with others and act accordingly.also cyclists should defer (where possible) to ped's and drivers to cyclists,its just common sense and courtesy.

^ totally agree with Theodore.

like all pedestrians who jaywalk. are they assholes too?
Yes, without question. And the very worst are the ones who push their child in a buggy or pram out into the path of traffic.

I seriously can't believe more people don't get hit here. Jaywalking should be fined. People walk out into the road constantly without looking. I always wait until it's green and people behind me huff because they have to walk around me to cross against the light. Especially now with the snow. Cars can't stop as quick. People are idiots.
Yep.

I was home before six so I'd say yous got the worst of it still the whole day of it was pretty heavy going. I settled on the idea that it was behind me just as much as it was ahead. The squallyness was definitely the worst, that whole being blown sideways is nuts.

I didn't cycle but while out jogging on one particular street the sideways wind was enough to blow my airborne foot in front of my other leg, very nearly tripping me up. Which would have been very very embarrassing.
I think tomorrow is to be bad again. The wind blows.

Post of the week winner: 22nd March, 2013
yea its shit. And this has been the shittest week ever for cycling (personally)

got knocked off the bike by a clamper van on tuesday. Nearly knocked off twice on wednesday. Also, a cop stops me on wednesday for going through a red light, even though I didn't go through a red light. The clown. Ended up telling me it didn't matter and to go on. Thursday the wind. This morning coming up Tara St nearly hit twice by cars trying to squeeze by me on the inside (though it was partly my own fault for not hogging the lane - though the cunts would be all over me if I'd have done that), and going home later (if I live that long) more fucking poxy shite wind.

Still beats the car all the same.
