Well done Sydney!

Yesterday there were some big storms in Sydney; torrential rain lashed the CBD right at peak commuter time. A few years go that kind of weather invariably meant I had the bike paths to myself; a lone nutter braving the rain on my pushie.

But yesterday, well, despite the heavy rain there were dozens of cyclists out there. Indeed, I would say there were more cyclists than pedestrians on Pyrmont Bridge; I counted over twenty waiting at the lights to cross over to Union St.

So well done Sydney; well done for embracing the bicycle, well done for enjoying the swish of tyres on wet asphalt, and well done for hardening up! What more evidence can there be that a bicycle revolution is underway?

Now I just need to send this pic to roads minister Duncan Gay, who famously commented that the city’s bike lanes were mostly empty, especially in bad weather…
