Re: How to report/deal with crazy road users?

Curious how many have assumed the driver was drunk. He may have been, but who knows. :wink: I think the key word is "suspected." That's the great beauty of breath tests. No doubts. I didn't phrase my comment very well. Perhaps I should have written "Curious how many have assumed the ...

Unfortunately that has nothing to do with prosecution for an offence or even blame.

Re: What size are the common rack and mudguard fastenings?

I think M5 for mudguards generally, but M6 for a stronger rack mount at the bottom. Depends on the frame.

Re: How do you look behind with falling off your bike

I can turn my head about 90 degrees from the front perhaps a little more without moving my body. I can see a bit more if I twist my body, but what I see behind is using peripheral vision, which is not ideal, but depending on the road I may make several glances. I also use my ears - diesel engined ve...

Re: Insurance for cyclists again

If the concern is about danger to pedestrians then perhaps presumed liability would be a better option, except of course that it would also have implications for motorists looking where they are going. As I understand it presumed liability means for insurance purposes and not who's to blame. Theref...

Re: Insurance for cyclists again

Presumably he wants signs at the boundaries of the "urban areas" to inform cyclists they are entering such an area. :roll: :roll:

Re: Ascent replacement? Strava?

That is very helpful and supportive too. :D Thanks. Clone my 10.12.6 Sierra and my Mac HD, and partition it on a newer Mac if and when I get one. I reckon that is the way ahead. Thanks muchly for putting my head straight about this. Obvious really. This software should do it. Maybe others out there...

Re: Cycle paths beside 'A' class roads East Anglia

On a positive note I am happy to report that in the Bridgend area a lot of work has been going on over the last couple of years to create practical cycle routes alongside major roads, notably along the A473 between Bridgend itself and the neighbouring small town of Pencoed. https://www.google.com/m...

Re: 5mph signs on national cycle route 1

It shows a picture of people running. Presumably they too have too keep below 5mph. :lol:

But of course. Faster than that is dangerous or reckless. Every non cyclist knows that.

Re: Did this bus pass close enough?

I think that was a rail replacement coach. There is a whole fleet running between East Grinstead and Lewes at the moment as there is signalling work at Lewes (replacement of semaphore signals?). Why E Grinstead I just don't know. :? I also noticed an email address on the back of the coach.
