Re: CUK supports BLM

.......My wife, a nurse, remembers working with a female doctor towards the end of the doctor's training. A year or so later she met the doctor again, she had left medicine and become a drugs rep. All those years (and cost) of medical training lost; because the doctor wanted to be more of a full-ti...

Re: CUK supports BLM

I see where you are coming from but what I want to know is have any BAME people experienced racism in cycling clubs and organisations that made them feel unwelcome or put them off joining a club? If they have they're hardly likely to be posting on the forum of the CUK. Of course CUK should be anti ...

Re: Black Durham trainee vicar denied job at 'white' church

Do religions really do more harm than good, I wonder? A little quote from Frank Zappa: "How many people have died as a result of reading the Bible? How many people have died as a result of reading the Kama Sutra? Which one wins?" One could very well mean you die happy,if somewhat disjoint...

Re: Maybe steel isn't so real.....

James-o,Petee.
I think youre both spot on,Jan Heine uses the term 'planing' where the BB flexes and returns the spring where and when it feeds back the the energy the rider puts in,it's real but hard to define or explain.

Re: calculations centering on 12 volts

. 4 A car starter jump thing based around a lithium battery. Such as a Ring RPPL200, but NB it needs to match your engine size. USB output(s), will start your or another car, can be recharged from mains. Around £50. https://www.ringautomotive.com/en/product/RPPL200 Jonathan I've just read up on the...

Re: Maybe steel isn't so real.....

I thought the pinnacle Arkose R2 had a long chain stay at 434mm ( one of the reasons I bought it cos I hate heal strike on panniers ) but the surly is a lot longer. Long chainstays(LWB) don't just help with heel strike,they also help stabilty when loaded. As an extreme example,was always surprised ...

Re: CUK supports BLM

Hi, ........ And we're on the subject are women in general really interested in being CEOs and working in a mainly physical men's career. I believe that women are better GPs when dealing with men, and men are obviously an advantage when doing hard manual work. That's not to say some women can't do ...

Re: CUK supports BLM

I tend to agree. I don't think race is particularly relevant to cycling which is why Cycling UK should have stayed out of the whole BLM debate. The biggest issue by far is the ever present danger to cyclists from motor vehicles, from careless down to downright dangerous driving. Now the majority of...

Re: CUK supports BLM

I can well believe british policepersons behaving thus With so many people recording every event and encounter on their phones, would the proof not be in the pudding? Whenever such video emerges it soon appears on national news. I have an old white unliveried van as my personal transport (it comes ...

Re: CUK supports BLM

I just can't imagine a british police officer behaving like that, I can abuses of power are self evident not just in the police,and not just against BAME people,women and children as examples of powerless sections of society. why doesn't he record them and get them sacked? Why? Because of the backl...

Re: CUK supports BLM

Hi, R2, I understand everything you have said and agree with you that your friend is obviously being singled out and treated badly. Like Vorpal says we have to go back to the root of the problem, a part maybe even a small part of the problem to me appears to be the cultural background. Apart from t...
