Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Good article here from John Harris:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... tical-vote

It left me feeling that it's time to sit down and have a cup of tea (maybe it was the accompanying picture!) with the Leavers - there's a lot to talk about.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

With respect to supporters of brexit on here, the reasons for leaving are irrational. No matter what you show in damage to the country they'd still leave at any cost. I don't think they are irrational and I don't think there's anything wrong with that if they are. Here are six good reasons for Brex...

Re: Cycle mag, CTC finally caved in re helmets & sold us out?

I'm not often accused of being a realist but my take on this is that non-helmet wearers such as myself are on a loser to nothing. The cycle helmet is now so culturally embedded and its not-wearing so counter-intuitive that I think noble acceptance of one's position as an outsider is the best way for...

Re: Democracy?

But isn't it ironic that supporters of Brexit also support the subjugation of Scotland (and Northern Ireland) within the UK superstate? Hopefully you'll get back control of your borders from the UK. Like the majority of Scots I voted to remain in the UK. In what way is a voluntary partnership subju...

Re: Damaged cycling clothing, do you throw or repair?

I pay various taxes which go on to pay other people to make those decisions I so wish you did. I think it's outrageous that we have to think these things through on behalf of manufacturers, councils and governments who don't make these decisions and, for the most part, really don't care. It would b...

Re: What folding bike???

I'd recommend a Tern Link with 20" wheels (for many of the same reasons as Brucey gave). But do check the boot size carefully. Don't forget the bike can stand up as well as lie down in the boot.

Re: Damaged cycling clothing, do you throw or repair?

Lots here on recycling: https://www.patagonia.com/recycling.html https://www.patagonia.com/recycled-polyester.html My question would be, if Patagonia can do it, why not the others? The answer is probably cost/price but tax on virgin plastic (already proposed AFAIK by the government) should neutrali...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

You're all still at it. Yes, it's not over yet. You all seem to want to wind back the clock and forget the whole thing. Winding the clock back is the prerogative of Brexit supporters so we don't go there. It's all doom gloom and despondency for you. Given what's being planned for the post-Brexit ho...

Re: Because where you go changes who you become

The point I'm making is that how you travel is more important than where you go. But given the current political situation, it might have been more broadening for many British people even to drive across eastern Europe than fly to Florida. But more prosaically I think it's better to cycle 10 miles f...
