Re: Guy Fawkes night

No, it is not! :( Could you leave the stuff to dry out, would it lose volume? Compost eventually? Burn in a stove? Seems crazy to drive it to the dump I would plant fruit trees and let sheep graze beneath them What does one do with a big garden that one can no longer maintain? Employ a gardener? Sel...

Re: Public Places Protection order bans cycling on NCN route

Sorry that was out of context ... my response was to the amount of disabled people that cycle ... Riding a bicycle requires a great deal of ability, being disabled may reduce the numbers of cyclists within the disabled group as opposed to the abled / ability group in society. As the husband of a di...

Re: Public Places Protection order bans cycling on NCN route

Lots of people are not visibly disabled, maybe they have problems with their lungs, cannot see well, etc etc There is a care home near me, one sometimes sees residents sitting outside in their wheelchairs but they do not go anywhere, maybe they have a bus trip once a year. I fear a lot of them survi...

Ps. cycling up one-way streets - different subject but the majority of no-entry signs need to be revisited and have 'except cycles' written underneath on square signs with rounded edges and made of metal

Re: Public Places Protection order bans cycling on NCN route

[ The Council also have a legal duty to provide access for disabled people, many of whom use cycles. Really, the cycling disabled are somewhat thin on the ground here in Yorkshire, especially in towns. Many, maybe most, disabled people hardly go out, exactly because access is so difficult, an unvir...

Re: Argos road bikes

I've got the 'middle' one (steel fork and 7-speed Shimano) as, at the time, the carbon fork version wasn't on sale - I might have bought that one although the colours on that one are a bit naff.
