Re: Cyclists ignoring traffic lights

On the occasion that I am out driving, I find motorists mostly dawdle and not let faster people pass. I think the motorists should sort out their problems before they can start on the ones of cyclists.

Also note that this is OP's first post. And check out how long she's been registered.

According to the Met Office, the hot hot weather currently being experienced in the UK and Europe could last until October due to an unusual weather phenomenon called "summer".

Re: Clarification on swearing

Sounds fair enough. I would assume anything like that followed by "off" would be looked down upon. Was wondering with regards to casual stuff.

Re: PM's for newbies...

Some of "us" are on this forum three or four times a day, so if your first post comes up when you need "approving", you'll be done straight away. Maybe I approve two a day. Sometimes more, and sometimes the person is still lurking and posting when I approve them. However, it can...

Clarification on swearing

https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=10801 It says here that you cannot alter the spelling in anyway, but you can use loads of *s. If "hell" was a swear word you could say "the weather is hot as ****. But what if I said "the weather is hot a.h". Or more commo...

Re: Be careful out there...

Basically just dont go to those countries. They are dangerous. those countries? This was a terrible occurrence, but cyclists have been exploring far away places for well over a century and are unlikely to stop because of this. Every time I ride in a new country I am aware of the risks, but I suspec...

Why do they bother with Harribos (or any other sweets for that matter)? What the heck is all that about?

Does anyone know? Yes they do

New Horizons cost about, well a lot.Google and Alexa says about $700 million. Dont know what that is in UK money but lets see how cheep it is to cycle to Pluto. Pluto's distance actually varies by the same distance that Uranus orbits. This itself is over a billion miles so lets ignore it. When NH fl...

Re: Dangerous mudguards

For safety there should be snap out mounts on the front stays. If you buy new guards check that they are included - Tortec and SKS always have them in the pack. It can be a bit surprising when it happens, I had it about 30 years ago setting off from traffic lights - never did work out what the caus...

Re: Your Favourite Cycling Book Is....?

I like reading cycling books and wonder if anyone would like to recommend a book they have particularly enjoyed? Cycling history, cycle touring, technical or biography. One Man and His Bike. Its about a bloke's bike ride round the coast of the UK. I found it very interesting. Its also one of the fe...

Re: Close passes help

What I don't get is this; there is a limit to the amount of space on the roads, but absolutely no limit to people going for driving tests. Surely the only thing to be done is to block people from going for their car tests unless they can prove they have a good reason. This may sound biased, but the...

Re: Close passes help

Satnav systems and google maps on phones haven't helped any. Once upon a time, if there was a problem on a trunk road, many drivers were doomed to sit in queues. Only locals and cyclists knew the back lane alternatives. Now, everyone knows them, and the minute there is an indication of a slow up, m...

Re: Action films, old vs new

Would you watch a cycle race where they zoomed in on the bottom bracket, or front wheel hub, of the 1st guy crossing the finish line of the TDF? I mean c'mon!
