"Gonna take a sentimental journey"

(my copy of Clover's map)

You can get your maps either from the Kiosk at Town Hall (though kiosk attendants very proprietal, and will only supply one per village per life-time) or else you can get them from Sydney University (who'll supply them to every single villager on a daily basis for the rest of their individual lifetimes).

(Town Hall with map-kiosk situated on pavement behind green bus)

(No matter what the 'doom&gloomers' say cycling is back - in fact it's well and truly 'on the map'!)

...and Clover's maps are full of promises and plans, and make you feel excited just looking at them.

We had such fun last week cycling through Newtown, Stanmore, Petersham, Annandale, Leichardt, Glebe, Paddington, Woollahra, Centennial Park, Surrey Hills, Redfern, and even the City - and it's only going to get better and better!

Apparently word on the street is that Erskineville's about to get a lovely cycling 'shake-up' - can't wait!

  1. Hi Sue, aaah Sydney, my old adopted home. It's had some bad cycling press of late, but hopefully now that Clover is on the case things will improve. Good to see a decent map with all of the cycling infrastructure on it. Let's hope it's the start of something beautiful!

  2. That is good to hear ,something stirring at last the New Awakening. Is there any Cycling Campaign Groups promoting Utilitarian Cycling in Sydney and trying to get away from the Lycra image that is normally there. Putting Cycling on the Map as a safe alternative to Choking up the Streets in a Car. It looks like Clover has Blown a Refreshing Breeze through the City by Promoting Cycling and it Augers well for the future.

  3. Bourke Street is beautiful and Clover is beautiful!!

    - the numbers of cyclists grow exponentially and this very fact terrifies motorists, pollies and bicycle organisations

    - we've discovered 'freedom' on our bicycles, and we're loving it!!!!
