I had similar false readings with a Lidl/Aldi cheapo bike computer when passing through one particular set of traffic lights in Bristol and also from the security barriers at the entrance to shops. With the traffic lights the speedo would register 100.4 mph and the electronic security barriers would...

Re: Worst High Street retailer? W H Smith?

Last few visits to WHS have been to collect lottery winnings and even then I get asked if I want X or Y. My last purchase left me walking out with money in my hand as I used lottery winnings to buy a TDF guide and had some McDs vouchers scanned and given to me which I forgot to pick up and the same ...

Looking at Google maps fro...

Re: Old Skool Cycle Tourist

I would have sent the OP's old gent up to the Severn Bridge via Tockington and Olveston, but it does depend where you're starting from. Doesn't it always? We were chatting in the centre of Brizzle and he departed just before 11am and I had visions of catching him up when I left for work an hour lat...
