Twenty five years ago, when I first started commuting on the Nepean there were weeks when I never saw another bike. I haven't done the Nepean for a few years, having opted for the beach route, but tried it today and found myself part of a four-abreast line of bikes heading up to St Kilda Junction with a scooter trailing behind. Along St Kilda Road three more bikes appeared. Can it be true? It seems like we are winning at last.
