Herald Sun today page 5 See http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,19964002-2862,00.html Heral Sun ran a race between a Car, bicycle and a Penny Farthing from Warrigaul Rd to Fed Square in peak hour traffic. But, they didn't include any motorcycles....... :evil: :evil: Anyone want to join me in a Challenge???? Bike wins over car in gridlock Liam Houlihan July 31, 2006 12:00am MELBOURNE'S gridlocked peak-hour traffic has slumped to roughly the same speed as a 60-year-old on a penny farthing, our experiment has found. The Herald Sun trial also revealed chronic congestion makes it quicker to pedal a pushbike from suburbs to the CBD along gravel tracks than drive a four-cylinder sedan on major city roads. The results are more bad news for the state's 3.4 million motorists already under pressure from high petrol prices, tollways and rising vehicle costs. The time tests pitted a bicycle and a penny farthing against a car with a top speed of 180km/h over a 17km course from Chadstone to Federation Square during morning peak.
