Bus Drivers of Melbourne

Dear Bus Drivers Of Melbourne,
Just a quick refresher of the road rules as you seem to have forgotten them. The rules are quite clear…

A driver facing a red light at an intersection with a bicycle storage area (a ‘box’ containing a bicycle symbol) must stop at the first stop line and not proceed into the area marked for bicycles until the light changes.

From VicRoads pages on Bicycles

In case you were wondering, entering a Bike Box at lights carries the same penalty as running the Red Light.
Can you please just stay back a few meters, I am sure it will not make your bus run any later…

Please see Rule 60A of the Road Safety Road Rules 2009 for more information.

Melbourne Summer Cycle

I have registered to take part in the 2008 Melbourne Summer Cycle. It is a ride to raise funds to help support of those affected by Multiple Sclerosis. This can only be achieved with your help.

Please take a moment to view my online fundraising page and help me reach my goal. It is easy and will take no time at all, just donate online via your credit card by clicking on the link below:


All information is secure and all donations will be sent electronically to Multiple Sclerosis NSW/VIC. A tax deductible receipt will be sent to your Inbox once the donation is verified.

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system affecting more young adult Australians than any other neurological condition. Your donation will go towards providing a wide range of equipment, support and services to those people affected by this horrible disease.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Arcadia Gastronomique

After a few months in Melbourne, I have fallen in love with a great little restaurant just around the corner from where I live. It be fair, it only took two visits before I was hooked and was eating there whenever could.

I thought to myself a few weeks back that I should blog about how cool they were so that they could get some more people in the door (they only opened this year) but it seems I have been beaten to the punch – They have just appeared in the Foodie section of the Melbourne Age and now they are booked out most of the time… So now I need to plan a little more 😦
