    The worst streets/roads to ride in melbourne. .

    as in, the most places you've had accidents, or near misses..

    to me, the most dangerous stretches of road are Sydney Road, and Collins Street.
    collins street mainly for all the car doorings that i have missed..

    what are some trecherous stretches of roads in melbourne that you have encountered?

    I crashed on Rathdowne Street once. Coz of a scooter. That one's worth keeping an eye on.

    Warrigal Rd - never again.

    Any street with traffic backed up in teh cbd - whenever cars aren't moving drivers are getting angsty and are prone to doing stupid things.

    lolz, sorry ryan, wasn't directed at you, or anyone for that matter. In fact i think it's an indirect quote from Shifter Dan, when everyone was bitching about his new place being off Chapel St.

    i rode that everyday to work for 4 months. it wasn't as bad as the 2km ish section of north rd past oasis bakery, which is two lanes each way with a clearway in the morning, the gutter till 3 feet into the rd is cobbles, and everyone is switching lanes constantly to avoid either parked cars, or cars stopped in the inner lane to turn right. sweaty palms most mornings.

    I have to say Nicholson Street. From the city all the way to the end. Not much of that street is enjoyable to ride.
