Re: Coach indicator light

Think I’m ‘on the fence’ over this one! Yes, I agree, don’t like the cyclist indicator - normal indicator should be sufficient, but?

Re: Triathlete hits horse on road. Shameful!

Sad old world! People spend pages ranting on about entitled drivers acting stupidly/inconsiderately/dangerously/selfishly, yet when a cyclist does it, for some reason, ‘it’s different’. I thought we were supposed to be ‘progressing’ as a society, more like regressing :-(

Re: Salisbury plain

Perhaps they want to get rid of cyclists? I assume not the bit with the cats in! :-)

Re: Wood Burners

Ok just a couple of points. Firstly I have never seen wood that burns better wet than dry!? Weight of handling is a significant factor too, water is heavy stuff. As for everyone doing it well there's a hellofa lot of wood that goes to waste here. It requires a pretty high level of physical fitnness...

Re: Fear.

Nah, for a start it's an irrational thing so doesn't hold up to examination. Look at how cars are sold, empty roads, respect from your peers and neighbours. Suave sophisticated people getting in and out, luxury interiors, soft glowing buttons ready to convert your merest touch into instant commands...

Re: Cycling is so very dangerous !!

Helmet manufactures. They need to sell helmets and they need you to be too frightened to cycle without one. ANGI Cycling is so dangerous that you must wear a helmet that calls for help ! Has a "Safety Beacon". A "Crash Detector" A "Tracker". ANGi / SPECIALIZED .... a b...

Trouble is it’s the old story, have to ‘do something’, which can be self defeating.

Re: Proof if it were needed

Fastpedaller +100 doesn’t even cover it! This is the most recent petition of this sort that I’ve seen recently. The guy was killed doing everything right, so how does it make any sense to try and force other to take measures that have just been proved to be totally ineffective???

Re: 'you're supposed to give way to cars'

Quite literally 15 mins ago I was approaching a pedestrian refuge where a lady and dog where standing, it's a 40mph limit that leads onto the A1, the refuge is some 25m away from a giveway where the road junctions with a roundabout. It shouldn't really be that limit in any case as it's really not s...

Re: Advice please re conversion

I’ve used Cyclotricity in Southampton, for all my kits so far, two front and two rears, all easy to fit, sensible prices and working great!
