Re: Cyclist 50% to blame for hitting pedestrian

Returning to the original issue.... The Sun has the best report including comment from Roger Geffen: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9319616/yoga-teacher-hit-cyclist-london-payout/ There's also a report in the Mirror with significant quotes. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/woman-phone-stepped-fr...

Re: Cycling UK AGM : 13th May 2017 : London

AGM took place as advertised and finished in early afternoon slightly before the time the food was requested. (Good food.) It might seem strange in view of the large number of motions but attendance was low, less than last year in Derby. There were no big arguments but some members there obviously t...

Re: Forth Road Bridge

Wouldn't you think though they could allow cyclists and pedestrians over it? The emergency services are being allowed to use it.[/quote] I would hope CTC members in Scotland are arguing for that. It's not the weight of 2-wheelers that causes the damage but the highways people have no imagination. Th...

Re: Andrew Mitchell MP

Andrew Mitchell's new bike is a Ridgeback Comet. His old bike had a wicker basket supported from the front axle but his new one has a steel mesh basket on a steel support which rotates round the head tube. More importantly, his new bike has quick release fittings on both wheels and he has a habit of...

Re: No unattended bicycles

We've had this problem round Whitehall (London) for years--no bikes to be left unattended. Likewise Brighton in the political conference season because they did have an IRA bomb in a pannier in 1994. It doesn't matter which big political party has their conference in Brighton. They all get the same ...

Road transport from the psychological viewpoint

The current issue (Sept 2012) of The Psychologist journal has six articles about road transport issues from a psychological viewpoint rather than an engineering viewpoint. http://www.thepsychologist.org.uk/archive/archive_home.cfm Look for Volume 25-Part 9- September 2012. CTC members might find thi...

Re: Where was the AGM held in 2011?

I don't see the relevance to Campaigning either. However I wasn't very happy to find that the AGM wasn't in Weymouth either, as I arrived there by train to discover that I had very little time to get to the meeting; forcing me to use a taxi as there was no time for an alternative. ........ Thanks f...

Re: Where was the AGM held in 2011?

I did think a lot of people wouldn't be interested considering that most members don't go to the AGM but it struck me as ridiculous that, this year, even the people who did go didn't seem to know what town they were in. 2011 could be the first year in the history of the Club that that happened. Jus...

Re: Where was the AGM held in 2011?

This is an attempt to correct the record before the year ends. Members have been saying in print (Cycle mag) on more than one issue that the AGM in 2011 was held in Weymouth but it wasn't.......(cut) I know who you are "Cycloloco" the cyclist with funny handlebars, are you trying to be Wi...
