Another commute video

Wide roads, cars travelling freely, big houses, sun shining.

It could so easily be Adelaide.

A big difference though.

This is how it is done.

And how easy it could be.

(A word of warning - the video appears to have been filmed with a handheld mobile phone so it's all a bit Blair Witch Project. Don't watch it if you think you might get queasy).

Note the detour beginning at 5.34. Nobody is dumped into traffic without warning. The route continues without interruption.

And note the bridge beginning at 7.32. It could so easily be the King William Street bridge over the River Torrens. No excuses any more.

  1. arw, thanks for making me home sick. Thankfully I am going to Copenhagen next week for holidays. Can't wait to plug the kids in the cargo bike and ride around town showing all the sites, taking in the brilliant architecture and infrastructure, getting cold fingers and noses and be surrounded by cycling friendly people.

    Worth mentioning that the same trip could have been done using the 'S-train' in around 20 minutes with a short walk either end, but why bother when you can have a lovely ride instead. If it rains of the way home you can always take the bike on the train (for free) and use the wifi in the mean time.
