I read the article in the Moreland Leader with interest: http://leader.newspaperdirect.com/epaper/viewer.aspx?issue=68442015011200000000001001&article=0656ac9a-042c-4864-b363-c0377842e0f8&page=0

I'm intrigued that the figures quoted are dollar amounts for fines. Isn't this blitz about reducing the number of collisions involving cyclists? How many collisions have been prevented by this blitz?

I'm uncertain of the wisdom of setting myself a 500km cycling target for October when there will be a teeny tiny baby in the house; particularly given I've already entered a 10km run at the Melbourne Marathon on 12 October (I know, sometimes I surprise even myself).

But there we go... we can't spend our lives sitting still, can we?
It's for a great cause, so if you fancy pedalling along with me for a few kilometres in October please give me a holler!

Alternatively if you'd rather donate to the Children's Medical Research Institute please follow the link below where you'll find details of how to contribute, along with details of my progress.

My wife ( +Kirsty Johns) has convinced me to enter the Mother's Day Classic, which is in just 19 days time. 8km. Running. Me. I have never done this before!

If you feel as generous as you are astonished by this action, you can donate to breast cancer research by following the link below.

Thanks, in advance, for your kindness! 
Pete Johns's Page. My Story. I am participating in the Mother's Day Classic and raising funds for breast cancer research. This may come as a shock to anyone who knows me. I have been quoted saying, "I get out of breath running a bath!" And yet here I am entering an eight kilometre run.

Hopefully this blitz will include keeping motor vehicles out of bike lanes (ideally with a kerb) and stopping bike lanes from terminating without warning: these have been the cause of every near-miss I've had as a cyclist on Sydney Rd. (The Eastern end of) O'Hea St and the newly opened Pentridge Bvd are examples of where +Moreland City Council has done a great job of providing suitable bike lanes. Sydney Rd is a much longer, busier, and therefore more significant counter-example.

"Share the road" is a great message, so why mention the Upfield Bike Path? This device serves to remove cyclists from the road altogether!

The cycle lanes along Sydney Rd in dire need of resurfacing. As another commenter has suggested, a bluestone gutter hardly constitutes a bike path. Will the blitz include fixing this too?

It would be great to have the existing bike lanes widened (the lane alongside Bridie O'Reilly's is barely the width of my handlebars) so that bicycles can pass each other safely. There is no mention of any such measure in the video to make the roads a safer place for anybody.

I look forward to a safer Sydney Rd for all concerned.
