Re: Transgender woman wins cycling championship

Would someone be allowed to compete if they took testosterone for years then stopped a year ago? Just remembered this is going on at the moment - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/45880309 I think a new term is needed for LGBTQ as it keeps getting longer. Too long already, what if more letters a...

Maybe they're hoping the shiny new website will attract shiny new members, 20,000 more?

I must stay off the internet, in particular the BBC sport page, before I watch the highlights, today and tomorrow.

Re: Woman struck by hit-and-run cyclist in Dalston dies - BBC

If it's a 'vehicle' which falls outside e-bike regulations, does it then become a motorbike or something else? Therefore does any offence come under motorcycle regulations rather than 'furious cycling' and the like? If the cycle was adapted outside of e-bike regulations, to allow it to be powered fa...

Re: La Vuelta...Spoilers!

I almost feel that they should be allowed a substitute in circumstances like that, let down by the organisers. Impossible to implement though.

Re: Lejog

I do think stage races that are 'Tours' should actually be that, stage one A to B, stage two B to C and so on. The tour of Britain seems quite dotted about the place. I think even the Tour de Yorkshire has unconnected stages, doesn't seem any reason the route there can't be consecutive.

Re: Grand Tours

I think they need all the different competitions to keep more people interested and to attract more teams. If the only thing to win was the general classification, there would be little for smaller teams to contest.

Re: Geraint Thomas....

Thanks for the copy of the relevant bit of the article, as nothing on the BBC page, apart from the headline, suggests he had said anything of the sort. Edit:- He does a lot of cycling, I wonder what other laws he would like to introduce for cyclists and drivers, given the chance, if he could, I wond...

Re: Thinking Ahead

It would put me off buying a car if I saw it had been driven that badly, especially if I would be driving it in the same area as the previous owner. You are joking aren't you ... you are going into a car dealers and going to ask for a car with the least confrontational history ..... ? Of course you...

Re: Thinking Ahead

Perhaps if people google the reg if they are looking into buying the car then find a video showing how it has been driven, it might put them off buying it or let them haggle the price down. I don't know if most people do google searches into the cars they might buy though. It would put me off buying...

Re: Another cyclist killed by lorry in London

Don't most professional drivers get paid 'by the load' in some way though or at least generate more money for their employers or save them money. So there could always be time pressures on any driving. The more work they can do, the more money they can make. Couriers can make more delivering if they...

Re: Death by Dangerous Cycling

What about pedestrians, should they be included in new laws? It's possible a jogger could knock someone over causing injury or death.
