Re: Campsite Reviews (index)

One to avoid though was the one near Chepstow. A nice garden to camp in but no facilities. I was quite miffed as I phoned in the morning and said I was cycling 60 miles in the heat but she neglected to tell me there were no showers :evil: Plus the pub she directed me too wasn't serving food the even...

Re: Campsite Reviews (index)

Dol-Llys Farms at Llanidloes https://dolllyscaravancampsite.co.uk/tariff/ Stayed here last year when doing Lon Las Cymru. Excellent site. You can pitch right by river, out in open or some secluded little spots. I was right on the river bank and suprisingly no midges. Price £7.50 and includes a camp...

Re: Inconsiderate club cyclists

I always wave or give some sort of acknowledgement. Might just be a finger if I need both hands on the bars.
Seems to be a sort of code amongst cyclists :) most but not all will return it.
Car drivers don't acknowledge each other unless it's an unusual car :D

Re: Inconsiderate club cyclists

What was the speed of the 'blasting' through 15mph/20/30/50/100mph? How does this compare to the many hundreds of thousands of motorists that do this every single day? Here's an example, were the pedestrian's overriding feeling “*&£*#£& MOTORISTS" how much potential harm would they hav...

Re: Inconsiderate club cyclists

Why didn't you say or shout anything to them at the time?

Re: Triathlete hits horse on road. Shameful!

I think it's a shame we can't all roundly condemn the actions of those cyclists.
There's too much victim blaming and trivialising of it.

Re: Triathlete hits horse on road. Shameful!

Sorry but that's way over the top, this was a minor incident of undue care, you can't startv handing out fines when a talking to is the appropriate action, in far worse cases the individuals are given a talking to, that's IF the police actually bother to act at all, so why should this MINOR inciden...

Re: Who are the best/worst drivers on the road?

Highway maintenance definitely some of the worst drivers. Having just ridden the length of the country I have found hgv drivers to be the best - give nice wide passes could teach most motorists a thing or two . interesting. A lot of truth in this I think. Tend to think that it might be because befo...

Re: Triathlete hits horse on road. Shameful!

I am quite surprised the horse rider chose to ride on a section of road where a race was being staged.I find many horse riders arrogant,and few acknowledge any attempt to steer clear of their steeds.I am surprised that the horse rider left a gap to their left,as this can encourage hazardous conduct...

Lifetime ban after horse hit at Windsor triathlon https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-berkshire-44739096 Let's hope the police pursue the case and the loonies get fined a few hundred £££'s each.

Re: Wahoo Elemnt Bolt review (vs Garmin 820 Explore)

My bad if that's the case. I would always want ahead up. I agree the inability to pan maps on the wahoo and that you are always at the bottom can be a weakness particularly if you go off route. But I tried using the Garmin edge 820 Explore to navigate on the fly. Admittedly you didn't need a phone s...

Re: UK Trains - Online bike reservations

I've booked several bike reservations using gwr recently and haven't had any problems and was able to print out my tickets either at the ticket office or machine.
