Why is route 2 the most popular?

Our cyclist has been totally amped this week. She’s found that cycling has a another advantage when it comes to work too. She’s able to think through complex work issues on her ride and put them in to perspective more easily. It must be all that energy kicking about in her brain! There’s only one last hurdle, the decision point. Here’s the full story (ish) Road 1 is the flattest most convenient route to the CBD – but it’s chokka bloc of heavy traffic, bus lanes and traffic lights andRead More
Day 2 – new information – traffic lights This might split the riders opinions up a bit. Our cyclist loves the idea of Road 3 to the CBD although she’s still confused as to why lots of cyclists are heading down road 1 and turning in to road 2.

She continues to wait for almost 2 minutes whileRead More

Some of you may recognise where the diagram below could be. That’s cool but really this decision point can be anywhere in Sydney and after we’ve run this little quiz we’ll ask you to send in decision points you come by on yourRead More
