Re: 5mph signs on national cycle route 1

A couple of years ago, Bristol City Council painted Cyclists Slow 10mph over the roads through a public park Ashton Court. IMG_0419.jpg Apart from park maintenance and when there are special events like the balloon fiesta, there is no access to motorised vehicles. It is however a well used route for...

Re: Tights / Trousers Help

I have been wearing Altura fleecy tights over my usual cycle shorts from November through to March for years. They have been brilliant and even protect against the rain unless it is really tipping down. They have now worn a big hole in the seem around the crotch and to my dismay, Altura don't seem t...

Re: The not-so-invisible man

Well, whenever you look behind you, you'll be showing a red light to the front, which would be illegal if the light was attached to the vehicle rather than you ("No vehicle shall be fitted with a lamp which is capable of showing a red light to the front [...]" - RVLR section 11). I think ...

The not-so-invisible man

I always use 2 rear lights so that if one fails during a ride I still have one to get me home safe. On my main bike a continuous red is fitted to the rear rack and a flashing light on the seat post. On my fixed gear which has no mudguards or rack I have the seatpost light and have attached another l...

Re: Getting the Garmin 820 Explorer to do turn by turn navigation

I have a Garmin Edge Touring Plus and have never had problems with it crashing.

That must be what the plus in the name means - it works :D

Close Pass Initiative - follow up?

Considering the number of close passes I am subjected to on a weekly basis I wonder if there is any follow up on the police authorities who have 'signed up' for the initiative? The cynic in me imagines that after the PR photo of a policeman shaking hands and taking the 1.5m distance mat, it is rolle...

Re: Avon Cycleway

I did this ride yesterday - great ride and apart from the climb up to the airport, very flat. I created my own GPX as it allowed me to add a small detour to include my home. I called up the Sustrans map https://www.sustrans.org.uk/ncn/map/route/avon-cycleway and plotted the route on the RideGPS webs...

Re: wireless cycle computer for 2 bikes

Thanks for your input - I decided to go for a Cateye Padrome Smart - which uses bluetooth to gather data from my phone (which I always carry when cycling) So far it seems very good; the phone can be in sleep mode - you don't have to turn an app on as with Strava but the GPS still works so the speed ...

wireless cycle computer for 2 bikes

I'm looking to get a wireless cycle computer and it would be handy if I could swap it between bikes. I know there used to be certain computers that could take 2 separate wheel diameters so you could use them on different machines but this doesn't seem to be a feature that is advertised on many of th...
