Re: I do not believe it!

............. Queer little tales from afar, related by a gang of compulsive liars - aka newspapers. Why read them and allow your brain to be confused, distracted and polluted with their "based on a true story" stuff? I have found my own everyday experiences far more informative concerning...

Re: Should Queen Lizzie be the last in the Game of Royals?

A Royal or someone like Blair as a President...... God forbid There are sixty odd million people in these islands. Why on earth would we choose Blair? Many more worthy candidates. He did less damage than Thatcher. I think that this country elected him because he (metaphorically) got into bed with M...

Re: CTC - Cycling UK AGM motion Number 5

...........Charity status involves the role of trustees which, as far as I can see legally overrides just about everything else in the running of the organisation............... Well absolutely tc - so what's the point of voting? I've remained a member because our Section retains a family feel (alt...

Re: CTC - Cycling UK AGM motion Number 5

I submit that CTC would still be a club if only the votes of members who'd expressed their preference themselves in that matter had been counted. ..................I believe that those Members would have ticked a few more boxes and voted in support of the Chair. YMMV. Ah - well - we stick on that g...

Re: CTC - Cycling UK AGM motion Number 5

If say 800 voted for a motion and say 200 voted against, and the Chairs vote counted as 1200 against, it would be lost by 1400 v 800. However, delegating the Chair to vote for a member is easy with a tick box. All other proxy votes would need the person - member to contact the proxy and ask if they...

gaz wrote:"Numbers of Members who voted" means "numbers of Members who voted" :wink: .


So then does that not - repeat categorically NOT include the proxy votes exercised by the chair? Is that the case?

Re: CTC - Cycling UK AGM motion Number 5

When it is said "numbers of members who voted", does that mean members who actually voted themselves and did NOT give the chair vote as proxy - there is a difference.

Re: Wet wipes

This is all quite enlightening. I use wet wipes when on the bike - as has been said above, they are handy for wiping oil and grease off the hands, and sticky substances that are left after eating various items of sustenance. Henceforth, I will put the used ones in the bread bag I carry for my on-roa...

Re: Wet wipes

You'd be wrong to assume no one on the forum uses them. They're great for wiping down a sweaty face(òr indeed other parts of the anatomy),cleaning hands after roadside mechanical,etc,and they clean bar tape very well too,I carry a small hand y pack in the bag :) Of course it goes without saying,or ...

Re: Post mount a rack light

That's what I'm worried about! Lots of home solutions, no decently machined ones to get. Honesty - I have so many cycling colleagues with this one problem in common - and most of us have devised out own method/ensemble for fixing lights to the rack. Building an assembly which is neat, inconspicuous...
