Training ride curtailed

The Saturday morning no standing zone along Beach Road on trial by the Kingston Council is showing improvements in traffic flow and no significant parking issues, not to mention the huge improvement for the safety cyclists - as reported in The Age.

Despite this the neighbouring Bayside City Council is not interested in continuing this through their section of Beach Road as reported in the same article. Road cyclists are not that popular with some members of the general public (as can be seen by some of the comment at the end of this and other similar articles) but they are a large and growing fraternity. Ignoring their need for safety will have the result of increasing the death toll of cyclists on the road. Sad but true.
