New car review: BMW X6 M50d

You can’t ignore the styling of the BMW X6 M50d.

On the road to better cycling infrastructure

Cycling is becoming more and more popular for commuting and leisure trips in Western Australia.  In 2013, 405,000 of us cycled each week in WA according to the Australian Cycling Participation Survey.

Every cycle trip we make involves riding on the road for some part, even if just to reach a shared path.  While we may be comfortable cycling on some roads without the need for cycle lanes and other facilities, it can sometimes be intimidating cycling amongst cars and other vehicles.  As a result we may seek to avoid certain roads as much as possible, using alternative routes when we have the opportunity, and in some cases it can put us off cycling altogether.
