Re: Is 'ethical cycling' also a protected belief?

Which service? Presumably the one which used to take place on the Sunday of York Rally each year. (I do miss the Grand Parade back to the Racecourse after the service).

Re: Why wear black?

Nothing to do with road. It was "back to the distinctiveness" of orange as opposed to yellow in a rail environment.

Re: Camping togs for men Guardian Style

The money’s obscene. Though 3 pairs of socks at £8.99 seems reasonable. Perhaps someone in the fashion world could be persuaded to shoot bike from Halfords/ clothes and kit from Decathlon/ diet from McDonalds, cycle tourist bloke at the out of season French muni. For balance https://www.theguardian...

Re: Camping togs for men Guardian Style

eh? Thats the url I posted. so whats your point? That it's a fashion article about clothes which happen to be "scout style", rather than an article to do with camping. Some of the early posts in the thread didn't seem to realise this. well is there much of a distinction? The clothes are h...

Re: Poland/Belarus border posts open to cyclists ?

Yep, see Bialowieza - before it's all cut down!

Re: Speed humps - may damage immune system

By the way, I've never seen an "asymmetric" speed hump like the one in the photo accompanying the article. Three questions: Are they a London speciality? Are they what people refer to as "sinusoidal" humps? What happens if you drive over them the other direction, (perhaps on a bi...

Stuff like this is not seeing the trees for the forest. We need to get rid of the cars, not the speed humps.

Re: My objection to Gift Aid

I've raised this question with someone I know who is manager of a charity shop. He confirms that there is no actual reconciliation of gift aid claimed with tax paid by an individual.

Re: Why wear black?

The reason track workers wear orange rather than any other colour is largely because it cannot be mistaken in the distance for a signal colour. nope, don't think so ... heres the spec: https://www.globalrailwayreview.com/article/30804/visibility-rail-safety/ https://www.satra.com/spotlight/article....
