The Niceness of Nagano

For a brief moment in February I left Australia and found myself in Japan.

Everyone seems to have a bicycle,

... and everyone is unencumbered by bicycle helmet law,

... and everyone seems to use a bicycle.

And because motorists are often on bicycles,

... and cyclists are often in cars

... and pedestrians are often pushing bicycles,

... it all sort of works,

... and people get on with all their daily comings & goings,

... with a spot of sensible parking thrown in for good measure.

Sigh ... such a far cry from Australia's non-existant bicycle culture which our ignorant, portly, elderly politicians are wedded to.

Move over, Duncan Gay, a better person than you has to be waiting in our transport wings ...

... don't they?
