Cycling in Johannesburg

We just returned from the Cycle Expo in Johannesburg; what an eye-opener!
People seem to be experts in finding reasons to not commute by bike to work.  The two most mentioned objectives were the Gautrain and the safety on the roads!  Well, here's the good news.  The Gautrain allows you to take your  folding bike onboard, as long as you put the bike in a bag.  And safety?  Have a look at www.juca.co.za.  Juca's primary objective is to make Johannesburg biker friendly.  They've mapped over 300 km of routes from all suburbs within the highway ring to the main business centres.  The map is online.
So what's your excuse?
