The (ir)responsibily of the Media

Just a note to those not in Scotland, The Herald on Sunday is considered by many to be the leading "liberal" Scottish Sunday paper. God help us.[/quote]

Thanx for that

Re: How do you acknowledge cyclists you pass?

I say g'day.

I was in a Newcastle cafe years ago and I could not understand our waitress. Another waitress came over and told us they could not understand her either because she was from York. I thought it was just me.

Re: How hilly is Hadrians Cycleway?

Hadrian's Wall is worth the ride. But going east after Greenhead we hiked the middle third. That was worth getting off the bikes.

Re: What do you look for in a campsite

Trees and bushes NOT open grass fields. I do not like camping on a lawn.

Best winter Gloves?

I use BarrMitts during cold weather. The pogies are wind and water proof. On really cold days I throw in hand warmers and still wear my regular gloves.
