Re: Diamox/Acetazolamide "Source"

3400 is not very high. There are places in the Alps for example where you can get that high by cablecar, the train up the Jungfrau will exceed that in less than an hours ride. I have no problem with being prepared but I think you are worrying about not a lot here. 5000m - yes i'd start to be thinki...

Re: Diamox/Acetazolamide "Source"

You don't say why you want them so it is difficult for any medical members on here to offer advice on whether your GP would/should consider giving you a prescription (it is a prescription only medication). I have had friends prescribed them for high altitude trips in the past. If unwilling to see y...

Re: Wahoo Elemnt

..... I've owned a Bolt for over a year so know exactly what it does/doesn't do.I've not experienced "Wahoo infrastructure"failing in that time in the UK,France or Mallorca!..... When you've left high and dry with a dead brick because of such failures you get to question the device, it's ...

Re: Evans Cycles seeks buyer after failing to mount rescue bid

For me one of the things that has put me off the chain is that they seem to have moved from recognised quality brands to more and more "own brand" - and I have a strong mistrust of "own brands". I was seeking various bits early summer and went into one of their shops and ended up...

Re: Wahoo Elemnt

Since releasing the 800 Garmin seem to release units that aren't ready then think releasing firmware patches make it OK(again look on Garmin users Forum).I prefer a unit that works from the get go. Maybe read my review of the Elemnt (above) as ask yourself if Wahoo have created a unit that "wo...

Re: Wahoo Elemnt

... Release the 1030 and from feedback from fellow CC members who bought these it's the usual Garmin story. .... I'm very happy with my 1030 (after a month daily use). It has bugs and quirks but I avoided making comparisons in this thread as it was more a review of the failures of the Wahoo Elemnt ...

Re: No More Extra 9 Months on Passport After Early Renewal

.....Welcome to the 9 1/2 year passport. Very true given how many countries require at least 6 months validity on entering their countries. Basically just slipping through a price increase they hope people wont notice - like your 63g bar of chocolate shrinking to 58b then further shrinking to 48g -...

Re: No More Extra 9 Months on Passport After Early Renewal

I just applied for a new one, takes a couple of weeks, one has to surrender the old one, not sure what happens if one wants to travel in that period. I did not plan to, but an urgent need might have arisen A few months ago I paid extra for the medium (faster but not same day) turnround. There was a...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I see that Ms May was not terribly convincing at er EU presentation about what she's been pushing as the only way forward! All 27 EU leaders believe Theresa May's Brexit trade plan 'will not work’ Which means that even Hungry failed to support Ms May even after her Conservatives tried to buy their s...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Re: Referendum of Final Negotiated Deal I find May's reaction to such a referendum quite amusing/predictable (i.e. "when hell freezes over and not even then"). Predictable given that she has fought (using tax payers money) through the courts to exclude Parliament from having any say so the...

Re: Navigation pain

I've never used a bike GPS, so how quick and easy is it to cobble together a route and get it onto your device? Is it easy to learn? I'm not thinking of getting one, but I'm curious. My hand-held Satmap is okay for walking, but it simply shows you where you are on an OS map of your choice. So you a...

Re: After A Tour ... Lacking Motivation to Go Out Cycling

Maybe 2 months is too long? I might have enough of it after 2 months. ..... I'm sure the "too long" point varies with many factors. for me I wanted to keep going and after returning my panniers stayed loaded and every day it was a challenge not to clip them back on the bike and head for t...

Diamox/Acetazolamide "Source"

Not a cycling question but does anybody know of a reliable source to get Diamox/Acetazolamide in the UK. There are quite a few online pharmacies (that do some token GP consultation) but they all sound a bit dodgy to me (I'm not convinced by them). I'm sure my own GP wont issue me a prescription (qui...

Photos of the display showing this issue below They're quite telling. The 'cutoff' line is perfectly straight. That suggests to me that their map data is tiled, and that one of the tiles is failing to render. Possibly a memory issue, possibly data corruption in the tile, or possibly just a plain ol...
