Re: Carrying a child's bike

Ride it, knees out, heels on pedals. Or maybe strap it onto the back of a padded, filled rucksack, which would hopefully carry it comfortably without knocking into you.

Re: London cycle parking security

It doesn't take 2 hours to look through 2 hours of footage though does it, it should be able to be done in under 10 minutes. I also would have thought that the people who actually get the job of looking for the footage aren't officers but are the CCTV operators. Write to Cressida Dick, Commissioner ...

Re: Triathlete hits horse on road. Shameful!

Seems very unlikely someone would plan on something happening to get some attention, when that something might be falling off a horse and dying. More likely she was either unaware of the event, assumed cyclists would respect other road users, or had no easy alternative route.

Re: Post accident car insurance premiums

I often wonder whether the statistics really just show that the honest people who report all accidents and turn down the offers from other drivers to avoid using their insurance companies are the ones more likely to report any accidents they have when they are at fault. There's no requirement to us...

Horizontal fence post, wrapped with barbed wire?

Vertical fence post with dangling wrecking ball, or something that looks like one?

Re: Sky not funding Team Sky from 2020

It's a pity that McLaren - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cycling/46536013 won't be sponsoring them. It depends what direction they want to go in. If they want to stay being a British team winning with British riders then I'd like a quality, British brand sponsoring them. Although I'm not sure what bra...

Sky not funding Team Sky from 2020

Hope they find a new sponsor quickly, don't know who though. HSBC took over from Sky sponsoring British Cycling a couple of years ago.

Did he write every word himself?
Is it available in Welsh? :wink:

Seems that it was. Don't know if his new book is an update of this one or a whole new book.

Re: Elastic band - how does this work?

Some lids are quite rough on my baby soft hands so it hurts too much before maximum force is exerted, so the elastic band would alleviate this problem.

Re: Damaged cycling clothing, do you throw or repair?

I binned some bib tights last week, only cheap Aldi or Lidl ones, I didn't like them much anyway, they broke in the wash, one of the 'braces', the strap over my shoulder, had been ripped off at the top of the bib, I assume there had been a big tangle of laundry in the machine that wound tighter and ...
