Re: Extinction Rebellion

Personal change is a drop in the bucket compared to industry and commercial requirements. The protests are about the government forcing these into companies as much as getting people to be more green. That the government has to do as capitalism will lead companies to do the cheapest thing to make a ...

Re: Child friendly cycle routes in the UK

Re Devon coast to coast. You do realise that about 40miles of the route is on roads. I'm not quite sure If this is child friendly. There are a few hills as well. Leaving Ilfracombe bring some back memories of hills. Tarka Trail south to Meeth is a long but easy climb. The area between Holsworthy an...

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

Hi there, Plus 2 for that Mick :D . Control is at the heart of the E.U. agenda, coercion as a standard weapon. Big Brother will knock your lights out :roll: . Control is the centre of any government agenda. It is their whole point. To bring control to a geographic region through laws, social norms,...

Re: Child friendly cycle routes in the UK

This sounds an interesting thread. 6 year old son in our case. We are always looking for safe routes. My only thought are linking the peak district routes based on old train lines. Tissington, Monsal and high peaks trails. The Tissington one could form one side of a triangular route that uses quiet...

Re: Child friendly cycle routes in the UK

Basically yes. Camping as a preference for me as well, but not necessary. Just seems that a lot of the longer distance routes in the UK are either very hilly (nature of the island I know) or can be on non friendly roads.

Child friendly cycle routes in the UK

I'm taking my 8 year old off for a weekend tour soon and we're cycling the Devon Coast to Coast, but other than this route, the Kennet and Avon route and Hadrians Cycleway, I'm not aware of other signposted/named routes in the UK that are child friendly. Anyone got other suggestions?

Re: TV coverage of 2019 Giro d'Italia?

Can you use the Rai Player app to watch the Giro in Italian or will it be blocked unless you use a VPN to mask your geographic location? Will have to have a look when its on!

Re: Lon Las Cymru on a trike?

Did it a few years ago and the only section I think you’ll have problems with if you start in Chepstow (which is the better route in my opinion!) is the off road trail sections around Caernarfon.

Re: A361 Somerset

Outside of rush hour is generally quiet, though you do get a few racers flying along it. After Burrowbridge the road is dead straight for a mile or so and people bomb along. After the next village it’s a 50 til Taunton. It’s ok though and I’ve cycled the length. Personally I’d turn a Burrowbridge an...

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

If we have another vote I believe the Leave vote will be even bigger. Where does that leave the Establishment? Folk are really fed up with them already, and getting more and more fed up with the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels ( and Strasbourg). The French are just loving all this. Might as well ...
