Re: Cycle path closure (Pill)

The section of the A369 which you have to ride along does have a shared footpath/cycletrack down to the traffic light controlled crossing. However the suggestion of using Church Road and Marsh Lane to cross over the motorway is a much better alternative.

Re: Cycle path closure (Pill)

I believe that the closure is to allow bridge abutment repairs. I would guess that the diversion will take you up into Portbury village and over the motorway footbridge into Sheepway.

Lon Las Cymru on a trike?

Looking at a potential challenge and I like the long distance ride through Wales but does anyone know of any obstructions I might encounter on a trike. I know that the route has some severe climbs but am I likely to be meet with narrow sections which will prohibit progress on an Ice TNT or Adventure?

Re: Good place to base myself for days out in UK

Try Bristol, good connecting cycle routes to the Mendips, Cotswolds, South Wales, Cheddar, Wells, and the Somerset levels.

Last year 4 of us took part and they were very encouraging. 2 route choices 60 and 30 miles both well signed and planned to be challeng...

Re: First aid kit?

First aid trained for work my advise would be that if you are carrying a kit to help others it should include disposable gloves for your own safety.

Re: Close encounters of the agricultural kind

Riding a recumbent trike in a semi rural location I have always been very conscious of the visibility issue and tractors. I haven't yet had any bad experience and my concern stems more from tractors emerging from a field onto the road rather than when they are progressing along a road. I have fitted...

Re: Recumbent trike - should I ?

I bought a used Ice trike as I had balance issues which precluded my use of a DF. It did seem to take an age to build up m leg strength on the trike as it uses very different muscle groups and requires lots of spinning, something I was never good at. However I can now comfortably ride all day on the...
