An educated guess is that you searched "forum.ctc.org.uk", the earliest url configuration of the current forum. The original forum was "ctcforum.org.uk".

I can't recall how or when I discovered that, it certainly wasn't from memory.

Re: Public Space Protection Order to prohibit cycling.

I imagine the parked car arrived before the gates were closed and "delivered" the Virgin gazebo that has been erected in front of it. The "no parking at any time" restrictions won't have bothered anybody, a local motor dealer is regularly invited to park up a couple of cars to he...

Re: Public Space Protection Order to prohibit cycling.

PSPO notices are in place at both ends of the one-way street. In practice you wouldn't be able to read the detail without stopping to do so. Eastbound there are "no vehicles" signs (pedestrian zone) with timings that match the PSPO. There is a gate across the vehicle lane, locked closed du...

Re: Bike security - what do you use? Locks?

Like the OP I find cable locks a bit of a faff, generally I use two D-locks for commuting. Neither are particularly expensive, nor are they impregnable but many other bikes in town are either much more desireable or have much poorer locks (in most cases both). Shopping, where I'll be parked up for s...

Re: drop bars that split in the middle

I have a vague recollection of such bars, intended to allow Gripshift units to be mounted on the flat section. I've no memory of who made them, nor the failure rate.

Re: Traffic policing in th Wild West

The writer of that article missed the obvious opportunity to describe Supt Daniel Greenwood as "the new Sheriff who's come to clean up the town" :wink: . Roads in Kent increasingly resemble the Wild West too :wink: . There's no denying that across the UK traffic police are over-stretched a...

The Wayback Machine record starts from 13 Sept 2004. I'm still sure it won't be found there.

Re: feedback about moderation

I've always regretted missing that one! I think it was before my time. Maybe it's on the Wayback machine but I wouldn't know where to start. :D Before my time, although I do know where to start on the Wayback Machine and I've tried. I suppose if I were to read it all through again now - if it could...

Re: 5mph signs on national cycle route 1

Until a year or so ago there were signs suggesting cycling was prohibited throughout the prom area, these have changed recently but IIRC there is still an old sign in a distant corner displaying "no cycling" and "dogs on leads" as by-laws. Why were the signs removed? This is wha...

Re: 5mph signs on national cycle route 1

5mph on NCN1, Gravesend. Not the one I was thinking of earlier. It's a small parking area for the Rowing Club, bollards prevent general access to the promenade park area, no sign if accessing by cycle from the opposite end. Until a year or so ago there were signs suggesting cycling was prohibited t...

Re: 5mph signs on national cycle route 1

5mph, people had best not start running nor let dogs off the lead. Unenforceable 9mph signs (non-standard) for all vehicles and cycles in Mote Park, Maidstone including NCN177. Certainly not adhered to by motorists accessing the car parks, maintenance staff driving around the park, royal mail delive...
