Re: Thefts from cycle parks in apartment blocks.

To arrange insurance you have to have an insurable interest. A landlord has an insurable interest in his own property, e.g. the door to the cycle parking, the lock on the door, the ground anchor or Sheffield stand that cycles are attached to. A landlord has no insurable interest in your property, e....

Re: obituaries

I do not recall whether this thread arose before or after Cycling UK stopped publishing obituaries in Cycle. I believe the OPs intention was solely to advise of her father's passing. There is a dedicated area of the Cycling UK website, I know neither how long that has been running nor how long obitu...

Re: Cables; a fatal exception?

Gear cable outer failed earlier this week. On the way to the shops, rode/walked it home in an inappropriate gear. IMG_20200918_094957.jpg Gears had been somewhat chattery on it's previous outing and there were other issues with the shifting that meant I was already planning to re-cable, I just kept ...

Re: Slow cycling, bad experience

Is this sort of intimidation normal for slow riders... Yes. ... and if so is it any wonder that there are still relatively few cyclists on our roads? No. The most obvious demonstrator for me is that there are roads I'll ride when I'm coming back tired from a long run that I rarely consider when I'm...

Re: Road condition - What can I do about this?

If it's really for a handful of vehicles, maybe it should be downgraded to an unpaved road, same as many others in Norfolk. Having it purporting to be a tarmac road but not maintaining it as such serves no one well. What is the technical distinction between a paved road and an unpaved road? Surely ...

Welcome to the forum. Frame numbers can often be a guide to the age of a frame, if the manufacturer is known. If you know the manufacturer please post details, if not a few more pictures of the frame as a whole or any unusual features may help. If you can read the number(s) please post them too, it'...

Re: THE 15 MINUTE CITY - Possible motion for CTC/CUK General Meeting 2021

The '15 minute city' is a relatively new phrase in the campaigning lexicon, the essence of which is something that Cycling UK is already working towards as part of the Walking and Cycling Alliance. https://bicycleassoc.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Moving-the-nation_A4_4pp.pdf Not sure if ...

Re: Informal / formal group Daventry

In case you are not already aware, an informal Cycling UK member group can only exist as a subsidary to a formal Cycling UK member group.

Good luck with your venture.

Re: Travel spanners

I've bought a couple of used ones on ebay over the past few years when I was looking for them and at sensible prices. One complete, the second missing a few parts, not a problem as I already had some bits from one I lost/broke BITD. This one was also from ebay but a chance find as I'd stopped lookin...

Re: CTC AGM 2020

Back in the day (well 1979) to win a motion and decide club policy you just had to organise a coach party to fill the room with supporters.

Some may feel democracy died with postal ballots and on-line voting :wink: .
