this is on the bike locker at work. Yes, it is the actual lock combination.

That is almost as helpful as when the facilities guys at my work suggested keeping a set of bolt cutters in the cycling cage when someone on the other side of the U-rail chained my bike to theirs so I couldn't get my bike out.

...and off to the right of the pic are some great big concrete barriers preventing vehicles from being in a position that a cyclist might need to give way.

This was at my local bakery, Saturday morning.
In the light of recent deaths of cyclists, including a bike club friend killed on the open road I was appalled.
I spoke to a baker, calling it offensive for cyclists including my deceased friend.
Soon after I left they removed the sign.

^^ That`s a disgraceful sign to encourage morons to swerve to hit riders on purpose. That Bakers Delight is a franchise of the company.
Report it in Head Office contact email and include the pic and state of which suburb is it in.

Don`t let them get away with it as a joke. It is a serious matter. I`d boycott that store.
ID please? What ID? My seat tube ID is 27.2mm or 31.6mm depending on what bikes I ride today.thanks...

Grab a stick of chalk and go change it to something like: "If you see a Dandenong supporter heading off to a football match, why shouldn't you go and rape his wife and murder his family."

Haha, yeah I'm sure that will go down with the good humour it was indented with. And wow, just image how much funnier that would be if there actually had been a recent spate of such crime in the area. Absolutely hilarious. (NOT!)

dug this one out sorting last year's pics - so what is so special about this particular "road" in the Dandenongs? (Vic) actually nothing :) - ridden stuff that was a lot less "trafficable" - so is this sign any where else? Only one I've seen but I'm a pom

Maybe they weren't thinking of a bicycle as "traffic"

This is not signed yet but is happening in lightwood road, Springvale Vic. First you build a bike lane then ...Nah this better. Bike will have to stop for vehicles coming out of a drive way.
Usually it the other way around.
Don in Photobucket so hope it works.

I will be asking questions of this fiasco. It is on Hallam Road Vic, one klm from the Hallam Hotel.
Trucks have used the nature strip as a road and the don't mind dragging all the crap onto the bike lane.

And guess what? It is a contractor working for Vic Roads.

Image

How about the safety angle, and the respect for cyclists slipping over in the alleged bike lane. You might as well not call it a bike lane if it is used by trucks.
The bike sign covered in mud is a clue to their due diligence.
A car driver can now claim he didn't see the sign.

This sign reminds me of a new bit of bitumen on Buderim that nearly caught me out.

There's some lovely new tar leading into a corner, but just before the corner, it stops and there's a small 10-20mm drop off to the old road. Problem is.... the new bitumen invites speed, but when you go over the un-obvious drop off, you lose all grip on the corner, which is then right on you.... But luckily i escaped. And it happened to me twice.
