Riding around Darling Harbour

I couldn't be bothered editing this clip, so you get the whole 2 minutes (or however long it is) that it takes to ride around the back of Darling Harbour.

Why bother showing this?

I thought it might interest some people to see what it looks like to stay in a narrow bike lane at 40km/h. I tailed another bloke this morning, and we clocked an average of 42 on the flat for the whole distance. Not bad for two blokes with grey in their hair.

At this time of the morning, there was next to no traffic. It can be a little hairy when you have cars blasting past at about 70km/h (I think the speed limit is 50 - but no one keeps to it).
