Re: Of any good cycling books?

Postcards from the edge of Britain by Peter Mann. An excellent account of his tour around the coast of Britain on a Moulton. Much better than Josie Dew's book on a similar journey.

Re: Touring North Morocco

It has been 10 years since we cycled in Morocco and I can second the advice not to enter at Tangiers. We went there in a taxi from Tetouan and the docks area looked manic. From a cycling point of view the roads are very poor. Traffic out of the towns is very light and posed no threats. Entering thro...

Re: Bricycles in Malvern

A friend of mine who lives in Malvern Link on the advice of my husband took her bike there for repair. She had broken the gear hanger and in the process wrecked the rear mech. They were not interested in doing the repair and told her to take the bike elsewhere.

My husband repaired the bike for her.

Re: New Membership Cycling Organisation

Thank you for that explaination which is not strictly true. Posts are edited or removed for being critical and opposing the views of the GEO and Council. There is nothing in the forums rules that state such opposition isn't allowed.

Re: help! how to get back from France

Some solutions I have researched in the past. Cardboard boxes can be got at both Carrefour or Decathlon, near to each other on outskirts of Montpellier and open until 7pm on Saturday. My husband flew back from Nimes using this method, he got his box from Decathlon. NON-TGV train from Monpellier to A...

Re: New Membership Cycling Organisation

Reading previous postings on this topic it appears there has been some editing.

Getting back to the original topic, both me and my husband would be very interested in a new cycling association that returned to the aims and ideals of the Cyclists’ Touring Club.

Re: New Membership Cycling Organisation

there's also a £25 one-off admin fee Yebbut - that's one off ... it makes no real/significant difference ... say : 50 members = £1.50 per member for year 1, £1 a year thereafter - and IIRC the £50 rate (£75 year 1) allows up to 250 members - so it's really just a micturate in the ocean. Rob Hmm, th...
