Re: Mandatory Helmets and hi-vis to be considered in government eview

Have a guess which tabloid paper was slavering at the mouth at the thought- no surprises it's the Daily Fascist - oops sorry the Daily Mail- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5113697/Cyclists-wear-helmets-high-viz-vests.html. As usual, they got overexcited and had to put out a rather differen...

Re: Am I forgetting anything?

I'm setting off shortly to France. I agree about too many clothes but that's down to your aversion to washing them. Overcome that and you'll have it cracked! I find it no problem especially in France at this time of the year. Even if it doesn't dry overnight it will in a string bag on the bike. Havi...

Re: Appointments

Judging from the time spent complaining about it, a few more minutes waiting might have saved you time.

Re: Highest bike pics

Col de la Bonette ( 2,715 m); not la Cime, though - a bit too much snow.

Look at the other items; it's the newspaper 'style'.

Re: M&S or Aldi this 'bargain' Christmas?

Yes, I agree. John Lewis (and presumably Waitrose?) also have what is apparently a good final salary pension scheme.

Re: No Cycling

Looks like they are following the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations which apply at places where people are at work. That symbol is used where something is not permitted eg 'no smoking'. Not applicable on highways. I'm a trendy consumer. Just look at my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

Support vehicle? As in his wife joined him for a few days?

Re: "Chopper" Cyclist killed in 3-rider collision (Plastic hats)

Well, not under Health and Safety at Work legislation but I don't think that has the significance you place upon it. Not really 'fairly damning', in fact fairly irrelevant. If, god forbid, helmets ever became mandatory under road traffic legislation the HSE would simply change their guidance.

Re: "Chopper" Cyclist killed in 3-rider collision (Plastic hats)

Have the HSE 'decreed' that? I think they simply say that like motorcycle helmets they are not covered by the PPE Regulations. They have made a particular note to mention that cycle helmets are not covered by the regulations whilst used on the road. That is fairly damning in my honest opinion. Not ...
