Reasonable News Article on Cyclists in Daily Newspaper Shock!

FunFunFun for everyone!
From Sydney: They're healthy, thrifty and don't give a hoot
Kimberley Francis is part of a small, but growing, minority group. She is discriminated against, she is beeped at, and the Government pays little heed to her needs. She is a cyclist. The executive assistant is one of the few Sydneysiders who bike to work (fewer than 1 per cent, according to the 2001 census). She rides from Newtown into the city most days, depending on the weather, joining a "bike bus" of others heading the same way to feel safer on roads that make little space for cyclists.
Cripes, a noice, positive and reasonably well-balanced article on cycling issues! Now, to the strains of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir........ Hallelujah!!!


  • I can't comprehend why it's strange to read such an article but it is. I don't get why there is so much 'anti cycling' feeling going on with so many people. It really does baffle me.

    I liked the fact they mentioned it's okay for cyclists to ride two abreast in a lane. So many people don't seem to realise that at all.
