In what way do you feel the driver's actions led to your injuries?

Re: Help with what happened today

Sorry to hear of what was a distressing situation for you.

If you have any form of insurance or legal assistance now may be the time to start talking to your provider.

Re: Trailer flatbed, different make

That's a nice looking trailer. Similar size of load bed to my Avenir Mule. Close to 2Kg lighter but it's not a like for like comparison, I'd have to add in the weight of one of the hold-alls to make it fairer. The manual seems to have been lost something in translation:- If possible, use the trailer...

Re: ‘Stone age’ payment processing.

Why isn’t it instant like most transactions? Almost all transactions are approved by first checking the validity of your card and then authorising the amount of the payment. A successful balance check with your bank that you're good for the money generates a 'pending' transaction. The 'pending' tra...

Re: The end of Gift Aid

Welcome to the forum. From my own email the change does not appear to affect the 2019/20 tax year. I can confirm for the tax year 2019 – 20 we have claimed against £72.00 of your membership fee and any donations you may have paid. If you would normally claim higher rate tax relief on Gift Aid donati...

Re: LCWIPS

Why do you think it lacks ambition? I tend to apply an "encourage" v "enable" test. There's an awful lot in ABC's LCWIP about encouraging active travel and very little about enabling it. Perhaps I'm being overly cynical, my judgement is clouded by seeing the results of decades o...

Re: LCWIPS

No involvement but here's a localish one which I feel has a distinct lack of ambition: https://ashford.moderngov.co.uk/mgConvert2PDF.aspx?ID=10978&ISATT=1#search=%22lcwip%22. That said actually having a LCWIP is fairly ambitious by the standards of most Kent boroughs. I'd suggest dropping an ema...

Re: Trailer loading and handling tips

My Avenir Mule is often loaded around the 30-40Kg mark on shopping trips and I try to keep heaviest part of the load either above the axle or forward of it. Not had a 'tail wagging the dog' experience, Burley elastomer hitch mounted at the the axle. I used the original sprung chainstay mount only br...

Re: Side stand plus trailer hitch....

Welcome to the forum. Weber make a stand combined with a hitch. Not necessarily compatible with your set up and not cheap, especially if you need to kit out two trailers. Burley do a variety of hitch adapters which move the hitch a short distance out from the dropout. Halfords do a cheaper alternati...
