Re: Is it just me?

It used to bother me that a few and only a few did not wave or say hello back to my greeting, now I tell myself I am not important so why should they?

Re: Front Page of Cycle

if you keep the mags for ten years and then read them you will find that they have matured into a more readable state, this works well for all mags you can now buy.

Re: Anyone found the roads less busy and/or motorists driving better?

Cycling from work today I noticed that because there is less traffic the speed of the traffic that is on the roads has gone up, which it will if you think about it?

its very kind of them.
