Re: Smart Phones

I used various Android phones mounted to my handlebars and Google Maps was okay, but having a Garmin Edge 705 is far better.

Re: Bike parking at work

Currently 7 out of the 50 strong workforce are cycling to work, but there is no secure cycle parking. I use a nice big lampost and others just lock the bike to itself. I'm trying to convince 'the management' to give over a precious single parking space to 3-4 Sheffield hoops. Does anyone have a sim...

Re: 20st cyclist

Hi, I'm 6'4" and 20st. I don't mind being 6'4" but I hate being 20st :( ........ so can anyone recommend a decent mountain/hybrid bike that would suit me. I intend to use it on towpaths and cycle paths. :wink: Something under £200 would be good. I can sell you a Carrera at £199 if you're ...

Are you, in some perverse way, trying to suggest that Paul's experience with Sussex Police was at all acceptable?


No, I am saying that the conjecture extrapolated from it is nonsense.

I suppose the moral is, don't let the exrecise of cycling become an excuse for over-eating. Blindingly obvious, but it is a mistake I have made. You're not the only one! Cycling makes you hungry, it makes me ravenous, and you eat more, so far so good. The danger is that eating more is habit forming...

Y'all really should learn what the purpose of the BMI is. On an individual level it has some value but it is really an anthropological tool applied to statistical data such as the census. The point is that it is a ratio measurement that is collated amongst the population and averaged, where the safe...

I've been cycling to work for three months now. My shape is definately changing and I've gone down a dress size. Yet I've not lost more than a couple of pounds. I just feel so much better. My stiff joints (I'm 50) are as flexible as they were in my 20s and I have so much more energy. I think maybe ...

Throw your scales away.. eat sensibly...excercise sensibly which includes lots of steady work as well as the punishing sessions. Most importantly...avoid dieting. At my athletic peak ate ten doughnuts at a time , fish and chips, six pints of beer, whole packets of biscuits and wine gums...and never...

Most international Rugby front row forwards are clinicly obese. Just don't tell them if you wish to live! Weight as a sole measure of obesity is a load of clap trap. Muscle is more dense than fat, you can be 5'10" and 18st and fat or the same height and weight and solid muscle!. How much of yo...

Half your food intake and be absolutely ruthless with yourself,ride the bike the weight will fall off. PS,don't give yourself treats,your treat is the fact that you're doing good to yourself by not eating as much. DO NOT DO THIS - this is dangerous and irresponsible advice. First of all, moderate t...

Re: Do you really get what you pay for?

It got a bit quiet at work this evening so I had a browse around the web. I was looking at the Condor Cycles web site as they are local(ish) to me have a good reputation. In particular I was attracted to the "Bivio Flat Bar" but at a price of +/- £1000 how much better than my sub £200 hyb...

This reminds me of the time GMTV rounded up a militant law-ignoring cyclist and Anne Widdecombe (cyclist hater), pitted them against one another and called it a debate. I am sure you an guess what happened. Cameron shouldn't have broken the law, but he did. Well boo hoo, cry me a fecking river. A li...
