Tracey Kane: then Cyclist must start paying for use of the roadways , cos Motorists aren't gunna take to kindly to the extra wait times which would occur for NRMA to assist in an area that already has extended wait periods due to minimal NRMA resources being available already .....

Kimmy Gee: Omg. Wot! Call for a tyre repair kit. Or maybe a pump. Cyclist carry most emergency equipment in a very small bag. Seems silly to me.

Susan Polsen: Obviously you have never had an accident on your bike like I have where your bike breaks.....OMG people we are not talking about punctures.

Keith Street: Ok, so gravel rash then, pretty serious.

Bella Rina: Hope they teach the road rules also. Don't hog the rd n single file n keep to the left...
