Cycled down from Lincolnshire to London today. was passed by a cyclist on a specialized in all the lycra on the road to crowland, so chased after him for 10-15 miles, and had a nice chat when i finally caught up!

Re: Pannier question

something else i thought of .. i use a touring bike which seems a bit longer than other bikes, maybe it helps with weight displacement. i know its designed to carry loads so actually is "a little wobbly" unloaded. cant say for shorter bikes. but i do know my dynamo drags more than 20-30kg ...

Re: Good quality, well priced freestanding tent?

Re: Pannier question

i have a novelty on my bike called gears. i use one lower at the rear for panniers and dont notice the difference except going up hills.
rear panniers dont seem to drag anything like front panniers do.
i think cadence is the key, stick to a steady pace, and avoid stopping.

Re: UKIP, Science and Unanswered Questions

Why should jobs be for natives? Well because countries like india, and china are churning out qualified people in their millions. How does this affect the UK? Well if only the most qualified take the job then yes its technically better for business/industry. However this is not the full picture. The...
