Re: Getting the Garmin 820 Explorer to do turn by turn navigation

Thanks for your replies. Just so I understand your correctly, you are both converting GPXs posted on on various web sites and exports from Strava,to TCX. In which case I can do likewise with my turn by turn test route. ..... In my case I'm using an Wahoo Elemnt which is apparently very different fr...

Re: Recommend me a sturdy bottle cage?

I have the black version of this - but they do a metal finish too - I have had no issues with them inside the frame triangle: https://www.evanscycles.com/fwe-alloy-bottle-cage-EV160623 https://static.evanscycles.com/production/accessories/water-bottles/product-image/484-319/fwe-alloy-bottle-cage-bl...

Re: Con of the Week?

I think the image is pandering to Trump's ego. He loves being on the cover of magazines, loved having everybody talking about him, loves being the centre of attention.

But as image, it is intended to illustrate a point. It's what many images do. And it does successfully illustrate the point.

Re: Getting the Garmin 820 Explorer to do turn by turn navigation

I'm no expert (and use a Wahoo) but have you tried a .tcx? I used https://cycle.travel exporting as a TCX Course and it worked perfectly (on the Wahoo).

Re: Loaded Camping Gear Weight

...once my legs went they stayed went as far as hills were concerned but I could slog along the flat bits for hours. ..... I noticed the same. Any hill became a challenge but then level was a relief. I was a bit ambitious with the mileage, and then when I got to the last 10 miles realised I'd not c...

Re: Loaded Camping Gear Weight

Consider swapping the solar panel for a front dyno hub? That was my original plan but I can get what looks like a descent solar panel for £50 whereas a hub costs a bit more. Plus I can hang a solar panel on my tent when not on the move (I'll probably be on shorter distances than most seasoned toure...

Re: Loaded Camping Gear Weight

Done a short 3 day trip and ... 17.5Kg plus water. But that included a 2Kg D-lock (last minute I wanted something to be a visual deterrent and I'll be finding a better solution). I did include everything I'd need for longer term (e.g. 2 pairs of non-cycling clothes, 2 sets of cycling cloths (one wor...

Re: Slater and Gordon on contributory negligence

I tend to feel that somebody representing you will be more convincing, see more "angles" and present a better case if the believe in your case rather than somebody who does not believe in your case and is just "doing their job". I appreciate that the legal profession is trained a...

Doesn't the same question apply to when you use a credit card in a shop. Similar little bits of paper some people do something with (or not)

Re: Slater and Gordon on contributory negligence

... Just read your post after my previous post and I agree. If nobody ever presents counter arguments to flawed thinking then nothing will ever change and solicitors seeking to represent cyclists should be in there arguing the case and pointing out the shortcomings of e.g. helmets and contributory ...

Re: Slater and Gordon on contributory negligence

..... Whatever the action/inaction, if there is current thinking which is flawed, harmful to cycling and not precedence, then surely a good solicitor with our best interests at heart would be challenging and seeking to change that flawed thinking, rather than pandering to it by implying we should h...

Re: Slater and Gordon on contributory negligence

...... Truth is the comment could be about any aspect of the current legal situation which is based on existing judgements. So if the courts were saying anyone cycling with a custard pie on the head had a contribution towards negligence then they'd be mentioning that. Even if the op only wanted to ...

To me, that they mention "cycling in an unsafe manner" OR "not wearing a helmet" suggests that not wearing a helmet is not unsafe.

Re: Close pass

I had a very close pass from an HGV this morning- about 18 inches at 30 mph+. It was a large well known haulage/distribution company and I got the regd no. Quick google search and I found the managing director's name, guessed his e mail address and sent him a message pointing out the error of his d...
