ABOUT THE TITLE: this blog began as way of reflecting on cycling in the city. In fact, it was designed to directly demonstrate how easy it is to navigate Sydney on a bike. But lots and lots of people are doing this important kind of advocacy in Sydney now and in much more sophisticated ways. So Bicycle User has become a blog about the environment, research and art.

    When you decide to go on holiday, go cycle touring. Its the best (or one of them) ways to travel the world.

    On one of my blogs there’s a woman who goes touring on her bike with her cello on a bob trailer behind her.

    I wouldn’t like to try that but its interesting. I myself just take my bike and head to outback places.
