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

[...] So the elderly probably have a higher proportion of no photo ID and maybe a higher proportion of Conservative voters? (Other than my father's situation, the rest is guess work). Putting numbers on such things is hard, but one things for certain. I won't increase voter numbers and it'll have n...

Re: UK Transport committee - unfit for purpose?

Watchable at https://parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/788532c4-2669-4d2b-b6b3-311ebfadf797 if you've time to wade through 2 hours. Any idea what time Ruth Cadbury spoke? Are transcripts published of committee sessions? And it's not just the UK government which is unfit on this. They've delegated much o...

Re: Review of Highways Act 1835

PS Some of that article from Carlton Reid seems weird, eg the bit that says E-Scooters cannot be used on highways because they have not been included in the list of "carriages" that fall within the scope of the 1835 Highways Act and then quotes s72 on what's banned from footways. I'm not ...

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

According to some reports it's looking like any deal is down to the DUP. Representative of almost no-one. Certainly no-one ok in the mainland. None of us can can vote for its members. It doesn't even represent the people of NI and it's leader is not at Westminster. And people said we should leave t...

Re: Night lights, side of bars?

I ride with a flashing light pointing sideways on my stem to alert drivers of my presence as they approach roundabouts and wide or fast junctions where I have right of way and they are likely to be looking out of their side windows when I am in front of them. If the light has any side visibility wi...

Re: Diagnosing a fault with a dynamo powered rear light

Personally, I would hard wire the light in. Either fully from back to front or if it goes through the frame, shrink wrap the connection at that point. You can always run the wire under pvc tape along the mudguard or just zip tie it. Just remember to leave enough slack at both the front for steering...

Re: Small e-cars and e-bikes: please explain!

Over in the Extinction Rebellion topic, a thread drift mentioned problems with cars blocking charging points. How? Do charging points only have one parking space nearby? Are the leads very short? If yes to both, why? That seems like a daft design. Not difficult, this one is in Lewes, East Sussex. A...

Re: London Liverpool Street area Traffic at 06.30 weekdays

London Bridge to Liverpool St can be done fairly easily with low risk of getting lost via CS3 as shown on https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=130422 but you can do it slightly quicker by: 1. exiting onto Tooley Street, heading left, then right over London Bridge, then right in front...

Re: Marathon Plus or Marathon Tour?

On a related topic, I do have a few marathons but remain mind boggled by the variants. Can anyone point me at a simple guide to them all - with differences in easy to understand language? Have you looked at Schwalbe's website which gives scores for various properties of their tyres? https://www.sch...

Re: New Scottish transport bill

One of the exemptions to parking on pavements and cycleways is 20 minutes for loading, which I fear means almost no councils will enforce it. :-(

Re: Bike cam software

Blender's Video Sequence Editor. It's powerful and the interface is rather overwhelming as a result but there are loads of tutorials and youtube videos online to show you how.
