Re: Banchory to Potarch cycle path.. Not NCN195. Does it exist?

Shown on OSM as straddling the military road and ending at Sooting Greens.
Looks like forestry roads will then get you to Banchory.

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

. At the moment people who care for others are paid and treated the same as people who clean offices, and that isn't right. Cleaning a human being should bring a better wage than cleaning a laminate floor.. I don’t follow that can you explain why? Are you saying having a clean and healthy environme...

Personally I don’t :( despite Jackson Carlaw constantly telling me Tories are good for Scotland. As JC won’t answer my question I’m hoping the Tory disciple that is CC can enlighten me. :D

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Remainers tell us, without explaining why, that EU membership is necessary to protect workers rights. Now they complain that our exit from the EU will mean a shortage of people prepared to take very low paid jobs with appalling terms and conditions in care homes, on farms, as delivery drivers etc. ...

I can only say what happened to me when looking for cause of weight loss.
So are you saying medics shouldn’t have tested my D level?
The results are unreliable?

Re: Vitamin D - how much?

You get a blood test :D Have been prescribed Vit D for over 10 yrs now. I was loosing weight and one of the last things they looked at was vit D. Why? Because I worked outside eat oily fish and love mushrooms. It appears living in the northern hemisphere my body can’t get enough. My mother had MS , ...

Tebay > Tushielaw If I’d gone as far off the A6 to Orton I wouldn’t bother going back over to it. I’d prefer Crosby Ravensworth and then up through the Meaburns to Cliburn and across to Eamont Bridge. All very scenic At Penrith I wouldn’t bother going over Fair Hill it’s enough of a climb out on the...

Re: Belfast to Giants Causeway

I’ve done the A2 from Larne, albeit on a Sunday morning, and it was OK and a lot of cyclists out. Putting the route into cycle.travel gives the way I came back.

Re: New supermarket without cycle parking

My nearest Aldi has no bike racks or indeed anything to which a bike can be fastened. Neither does Morrisons nor Aldi. Tesco does. I find that incredible as our latest ALDI has its own cycle route to it off a main cycle artery. I’m fairly certain you are near Berwick John but excuse me if I’m wrong...

Outside my house? Yes

Re: Lancaster to Burton in Lonsdale

Wonderful area and you’ll be ideally placed for a circular of the Forest of Bowland and a circular north to Kirby Stephen or Hawes. Both a bit hilly. You could have a flat day around Morecambe Bay to Grange over Sands.

Re: Pedal extenders ( to stop boots rubbing crank arm ) ?? Any experience ?

I wonder , if you fit extenders, will you naturally place your feet wider?
I’d of thought not and you’ll just put your feet were they were and have a bit of outer pedal sticking out.

Another instance of faux-democracy : the US Senate, if you please! Which, it seems, is just about to throw out Drumpf's otherwise sure-fire impeachment. Something that, sadly, comes as no surprise! How is that a "representative democracy", when each state returns just two senators? So Wyo...
