This edition was a reasonable read - but it's probably the first to also really irritate me three times (although the mod's note for this forum makes it four).
P16 - a useful piece on doorings. If doorings are the major cause of injury to cyclists, why in hell do we have BV supporting blitzs and helmets ad nauseum and doing squat to educate drivers, or leverage government/police/VicRoads to educate drivers? Why does it not even ask readers to canvas driving friends as to their knowledge on doorings?
P22 - At the tail of a piece on the Worlds comes some confused logic suggesting economic gains from the event should translate into infrastructure. Huh? The media guy quoted appears to be hinting that the infrastructure is, like, roads. Frustrating that BV's dedicated infrastructure perspective is all-pervasive. Like the average Euro tourist is going to throw some coins our way for a Copenhagen lane? It is a road race after all.
P 70 - Yet another femme fatale piece. "If the smell of testosterone mixed with grease doesn't put you off, then the staff who reel off words like 'linear-pull cantilever' and 'derailleur parallelogram' will." Why does RideOn persist with this attitude to women? Sigh. I am not a fan of sexist bike shop staff, but you know what really annoys me? People who can't spell Lycra, who assume women aren't interested in the mechanics of their bikes, telling me what's going to put me off! Especially when she then acknowledges the variety of female riders in the very next paragraph! Didn't like the intro "... big-calved men squeezed into lycra" either. Squeezed? Get over it.
