when in doubt, "mate", "dude", "buddy" is acceptable or even "Bro" or "cuz" if your kiwi/look kiwi
Thanks Leximack. Choice broduncanm wrote:
For wet weather (when the tunnel is flooded), my wet weather route across the M2 is Kandy Ave, Ray Rd then onto Kent and over the M2 at the footbridge.
Various quiet streets up to Beecroft Rd - then short footpath hop to Copeland Rd, or straight up Cheltenham Rd to Sutherland.
Thanks Duncanm, after trying this two days in a row this is a great outbound option and one I will do in all weather. I can't stand Sutherland Rd and the tunnel. I think it will be my main homeward route (until I get bored again ). Using this route I didn't bother footpathing it each time so far. Even thought it was a bit of a climb with the usual red light on Beecroft Rd at Copeland Rd I took the left lane and wasn't hassled surprisingly. Good route!
They swept the tunnel today. it was full of mud as usual this morning, but had been cleaned out and washed for my ride home. Of course, the next time it brains it will be full of mud again.
Other than the tunnel, Sutherland Rd is a nice quiet ride. From Beecroft I get the long fast ride down Hannah St, which has no roundabouts to deal with (unlike Copeland).
It's mostly wet weather that makes Sutherland Rd awful. The worst I have seen the tunnel is with water up above the top of the fence, but I have also seen the aftermath of a storm:-
