What: Frome Street Bikeway opening
Where: South Parklands -South Terrace (Opposite Charlotte Street). We will ride along the new Frome Street bikeway all the way to Pirie Street.
Why: Show your support for well designed cycle infrastructure and more bike lanes to come.
Here's some background: The Frome St bikeway is being completed by the Adelaide City Council. It removes one lane of the road. High-profile newspaper and talkback radio personalities have been outraged. An influential developer is opposed and said he is willing to fund an opponent to the Lord Mayor who will remove the bikeway. Coincidentally or otherwise, the Mayor's strongest opponent is now against the bikeway. In short, if we want decent cycling infrastructure in the Adelaide CBD during the next decade then it is crunch time.
