Re: Bicycle Bumper Sticker ?

If I design my own then I'd appreciate some input on wording.

I think it's best to have something punchy, clear and to the point.

Any ideas are welcome.

Re: Bicycle Bumper Sticker ?

Two metres it should be, not 1.5 Although I want to get 2 metres and think cyclists should have 2 metres, I thought it was 1.5 metres that was the UK rule ? I see that Vistaprinta allow you design your own : https://www.vistaprint.co.uk/studio.aspx?project_id=49a48772-c67e-489f-ba2d-8c5f51ebd8d5&am...

Bicycle Bumper Sticker ?

I'm looking for a decent bumper sticker for my campervan that says something like "I give space to cyclists" or "Give cyclists 1.5m" or something like that. I've been looking on line but can't find many options. I wondered if anyone knew where I could find something like that ? T...

Re: Tent help!

I used this on a bikepacking tour of the NC 500 in the Highlands a couple of years ago. It's a Berguas 3.1 pro. It wasn't very expensive compared to some others I was looking at the did a similar job. It stood up faultlessly in the Scottish weather. On one occasion I was getting battered by extremel...

Time to shut your mouth.

You always know when the good weather has arrvived. I was cycling along a moderately busy high street with my mouth open and a fly entered and hit the back of my throat. Coughing ensued, eyes watered and the bike was pulled to the side of the road where more coughing continued until the microscopic ...

Re: Best Track Pump

Thanks Colin.

I did do a search for this topic but the Cycling UK search facility is less than useless.

I generally do a google search with Cycling UK in the search terms and that finds it better but not this time.

Cheers

Best Track Pump

I'd like to hear recomendations for Track Pumps with dual head that are a reasonable price please ?

Maybe if you could give the name and how long you've had it for at least.

Thanks

Re: Halfords Vs Decathlon (entry-level MTB)

I don't know why people buy new.

You could easliy get a decent bike for half that price .

And i'm wondering why you need a MTB to get to UNI ? is it all off road to get there ?

Why not get a hybrid with a rack and mudguards.

Re: Route navigation

With my phone the GPS gobbles up battery many times more than the things that you turn on and off with airplane mode do. That's strange. Mine uses a fair amount but I can get a full days ride out of it no problem. I do put it on "power saving mode" which helps though. The thing is , I don...

Re: Route navigation

I use my phone too. although , like you i do prefer paper maps. As climo says, just put your phone into Airplane mode to save battery if needed. I use back country navigator which allows me to download maps for offline use. It's about £8 or so for life and you can download as many maps as your phone...
