I'm afraid Oxford no longer participates on this forum. After being rear-ended and seriously injured he has opted to cease commuter cycling in order to avoid stressing out his family.

Sorry for raising an old thread. Can I ask what route you take to avoid that roundabout?

Thanks

Consider going up York St and then Paling Ave if you'd like to avoid things. There are a heap of options in those quiet back streets. Unfortunately all hilly. :(

Went through that roundabout on the way home yesterday for the first time during peak hour (my first commute to work). I entered the roundabout and the car entering from the bottom end of Days Rd didn't give way to me. Luckily I saw this clown wasn't going to stop so I slowed down to let her through. She had her window down so gave her a bit of a yell and startled her as she went passed me.
