That's right Max. I commute the length of Oxley Road (it is called Wharf Street at it's northernmost 2km). There are not many cars going the other way (outbound or south direction) and there are bike lanes on the northern end. You would have to cross the road (and city bound traffic) at the end of the bridge bike path, and 20 meters from there watch for cars coming from your left at the first intersection (they nearly never check to from bikes heading outbound). Lots of bike/car incidents there. They are the major danger points heading south. Oh, and the school drop off area (and associated dooring dangers) 3km down the road. Don't let that scare ya- it's okay by Brisbane standards
How far along Oxley Road are you going?
