Trails, space and folders

My partner has an upright trike due to balance issues. I have a Moulton TSR made by Pashley, a brilliant bike (as is the trike (Longstaff Cyclon). So, I can travel easily by car or public transport anywhere but Moulton isn't great on trails due to thin Marathon tyres. Partner is not easily able to t...

Re: Cycling with a stoma (colostomy)

I had an ileostomy in December 2008, so I've just passed my 3rd anniversary. The post by Ilans is right, ileostomies are I guess more difficult to manage because of the constituency. I have had problems but not usually and leakages are now rare. I started cycling about 4 months after surgery. I boug...

Re: Pass Wide & Slow

This may be slightly off topic so apologies! I was driving my car through a busy town a few weeks ago (sometimes have to!) I came across a group of cyclists travelling in single file but leaving no gaps between any of them, a long line of over 20 cyclists. I followed them at a slow pace for a while ...

Re: Common myths.

I know you've mentioned helmet wearing, but a court case held that a cyclist was partly responsible for the injuries suffered (by being knocked down by a HGV) for not wearing their helmet. Do helmets have invisible shields as on star trek's enterprise that prevents cars and HGvs causing you damage? ...

Re: Moulton Cycles

Just come across this post: I bought a TSR 27 last year as I needed something comfortable following an operation. I must say it's a revelation, quick, responsive, adaptable, comfortable, easy to ride. I had Raleigh MTB which admittedly wasn't much to compare it with, but also have a Brompton so was ...

Re: C2C by recumbent

Handcycle: I agree your comments about Sustrans and the DDA. my partner can't use many trails on her trike and her main diability is balance, not immobility as such, but Sustrans talk the talk don't they! Starfire: thanks for the link, I'll look at that. (XAP)Bob: I live in East Yorkshire and am wil...

Re: C2C by recumbent

Wow! Well, I'm certainly glad that I did revist this topic. 3tyretrackterry; thanks for the various sites. I did read about the Lejog trip by recumbent but can't recall where I saw it. good read though! i've looked on the BHPC forum site but not found much. This site seems better. Squeaker; I agree ...

Re: C2C by recumbent

I've returned to this post for three reasons. first to thank those who responded, second to thank Linda Rose and to say that my jury is still out! and third is to try to understand the supposed pleasure of recumbents. My partner has the Di Blasi but is considering moving uo to a trike based on a hyb...

C2C by recumbent

Has anyone completed the C2C by recumbent trike? I suppose I'm a 'fair weather' cyclist but would like to complete the C2C. My current bikes are: a Brompton (I know the C2C has been completed on a Brommie, but I don't fancy it personally); a Pashley Moulton TSR 27 - this is a great bike, very comfor...

Re: Pavement riding

This is an interesting debate which seems to have stopped of late. Some of the anti pavement use comments are, on the face of it, ridiculous, saying that all pavement cyclists are bullies. But some are, and riding at speed on a busy footpath is dangerous for the pedestrian, though probably not causi...

Re: Protocols and courtesy - cyclist coming the other way

On a cycle path that I commonly use, people normally pass on the left, but not always. Most people are riding at a speed that doesn't cause problems and isn't it common courtesy to ride at a speed in keeping with the state of the path, the volume of traffic and the amount of room available? If you w...
