[quote="RickH"]If you haven't got a surface water drain then you can't be expected to connect to it. If there is only one drain everything connects to it & it will be routed via the water treatment facilities. I think the ConnectRight page is making sure you don't do the opposite &...

Re: Victorian drains...

Hi. This is kind of my job. I survey drainage systems... ...and I wrote the 3D modelling system used by Strasbourg's sewerage dept. Funny thing is that my system knows about the various kinds of network, & works out handling capacity, flow patterns across the city, etc, but I nothing about the ...

Re: Victorian drains...

Hi. This is kind of my job. I survey drainage systems. As has previously been stated there is Combined , Storm and Foul. Foul being purely sewage and nastiness. Storm being purely rainwater. It is illegal to put a new foul pipe into a storm system. However if everything currently goes into a combine...

Re: Peterborough

If you are meaning the job will be in the boongate area. Which is industrial there are lots of cycle paths around that area and some nice ones that run away down the river too (towards flag fen.). I am not local to there but often stay there for work. I run alot of the routes when i am away. Very pl...

Re: JOGLE - Training Question - Stepping up the distance

Its worth considering using a turbotrainer in bad weather times with a fair resistance and literally just get the miles down using a wired (sensor on back wheel rarely reaches computer at front) sensor. What i do to build up is every 10minutes do 1 minute flat out (ie hill) and you will get stronger.

I agree with most of what was said by op. Certainly primitive man did not have access to processed sugars. Avoiding over processed food and trying to keep to natural products has to be good.

Re: Another helmetted cyclist with a lesson for us all

Well i would say 40mph is certainly possible. I have had 57mph down a long decent near Much Marcle (car with sat nav behind) and that was scary.

I have been up the Struggle in my old landy and to go down there at 40 you have to be mental. A lot of pressure on brakes.

Re: Max Clifford.

These women had more than one contact with the man and willingly returned to meet him. I don't see any use of force here or co-ertion. It would be seen by some as "trying it on". According to the BBC, his sentences include the following Twelve months and 18 months relating to a girl who s...

Re: Max Clifford.

Hearsay is secondhand evidence: evidence of what the witness heard another person say. I don't think it's an issue here.) I thought the young girls parents gave evidence hence my mention of hearsay. I.e what she told them. I'm possibly wrong. Clifford may well be guilty as charged but It's not just...

Max Clifford.

I can't believe anyone is actually suggesting a miscarriage of justice. A jury of 12 heard all the evidence and came to a conclusive decision. He hasn't submitted an appeal either. Most of the young girls were taken to him so there is a chain of evidence of contact and them having met. He has long h...

Re: Conflict between cyclists and lorries

Its easy to point the finger at hgv drivers but certainly in the city it must be hard enough to drive a large vehicle through heavy traffic without kamikaze cyclists who ignore the large signs on vehicles. (emphasis mine) You mean those signs which tell cyclists to never overtake a lorry even if it...
