Re: Touring Cycle computer that works with cycle.travel and has wifi/bluetooth

I haven't tried them but I think the new Garmins - like the Edge Explore - are a good bet. They have Bluetooth, so you can copy files directly from the phone to the Garmin. There's a little app you can install to work with them called routeCourse; this copies a GPX file from the web, such as one fr...

Brilliant performance by the UN at Trump's speech (or rather in response to Trumps speech). His ludicrous claims about his achievements and the UN ... laughed

Re: Intermittently slow forum

Maybe related, maybe nor but I just got 2 PMs - it was actually only one message but it got sent twice. I replied and pressed the "Submit" button only once (absolutely sure it was only once) but my message seems to have been sent twice.

Re: Intermittently slow forum

Still slow. For me the big delays are on posting. For me the delay is only on posting. Displaying threads seems to be ok. That said I've done the double post (though I've got the "Post Review" on the 2nd post) mentioned above so hard to know if it's sending in the post or fetching back the...

Goods & Services: Reviews

Having completed a couple of months touring I have experiences of several items that might have been useful or helpful to others making decisions. So I posted the 1st and quickly found myself being insulted and accused of incompetence and of lying and not knowing what I was doing by somebody whose o...

Re: Children to be banned from riding bikes without number plates.

Good to know it's focusing on the right stuff, what with it being one of the UK's worst schools (reportedly...) Indeed. Perhaps it's time for shaming badges to be worn by the staff, so we can all report them to someone or other for being hopeless at teaching or even damaging to the educational pros...

Re: Children to be banned from riding bikes without number plates.

Apart from the obvious daft policies that should be blocked, I would be interested to know how they intend to implement this to achieve their justifications. How/where are they going to fit a number plate such that others can see and read and record that numberplate when some child is allegedly ridi...

Re: New Route Planner

.....My phone dealt with things much better and the combo of cycle.travel plus google maps and European roaming meant that I had a reasonable fudge-but I would rather have had all the info on my cycle computer in front of me...... I agree that phones are not ideal, but one suggestion (unrelated to ...

Re: Children to be banned from riding bikes without number plates.

I went to add this to the school's page on Wikipedia (embarrass them a bit) but somebody got there before me (and their effort was better than I'd intended). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Park_High_School

Re: Wahoo Elemnt

If the route wasn’t created by you are you sure it wasn’t corrupt?(On our first trip to Mallorca two years ago 5 of our party all used a GPX file emailed to them by a friend and all 5 Garmins crashed at the same point.Obviously a corrupt GPX file) Definitely not "obviously"! Garmin units ...

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

Who said anything about starving? Not me. I was making the comparison of some folk liking something and others not. Porridge, I will never like. Being part of the EU, I will never like. .... Likes and dislikes are relative hence the example of starving. You may dislike porridge but when you've had ...

Re: Wahoo Elemnt

Keep it alive, please, I'm still interested :) I recall my Bolt syncing (ie downloading) RWGPS routes in the field, ie via Bluetooth from my phone which had a 3G/4G connection, not over wifi. Maybe I'm mistaken…? No you’re not mistaken. I’ve just done that at work just to be sure I wasn’t wrong.The...

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

I don't like porridge. I'd rather starve than eat the horrible stuff. EU? Porridge? Do you like it and can't see why anyone doesn't like it? Or do you dislike it and don't understand why anyone likes it? I strongly suspect that when you are really starving (as in genuine 3 weeks with no food) and y...
