Let us keep to good old-fashioned Blighty argot. "The rozzers nabbed their yob". Sheriffs woulda just shot him several times with their 45s, which is uncivilised.

Re: Cycle Magazine electronic versions on CyclingUK website

Can anyone get beyond page 16 (the last page of the sample)? It asks for a login to proceed to the full version but that doesn't seem to work.....

Re: Unsuitable for the clean joke thread.

I don't recall any communist government. The theory is, after all, an unworkable hodge-podge of Hegel-on-his-head. I recall those totalitarian dictatorships that labelled themselves as communist but were in fact a dictatorship of a small elite who used up their populations in various degrees and wa...

Re: Unsuitable for the clean joke thread.

First lesson of politics - anyone who wants to run the world isn't fit to do so. This, of course, rules out world-king Bokum as well as every other psychopath currently "in charge". (That's double-speak for making a complete hippos bottom out of anything they go near - see Bojerk Cwmpuppe...

Re: NonGPS Speedo options

Or forget the data & stats in favour of cycling. :-) Seriously - gizmos can ruin your mind for the full panoply of cycling pleasures. You start caring only about your average speed or how far you went and soon you are in full obsessive-compulsive mode. I once knew a woman who couldn't finish a b...

Re: Unsuitable for the clean joke thread.

If only you ran the world, Cugel, there would be never ending peace and prosperity for all. I eagerly await the dawning of a new Cugelian Utopia, but I am a little worried about being shipped off somewhere, lest I ruin it all with dissenting ideas, troublesome as I am. First lesson of politics - an...

Re: Unsuitable for the clean joke thread.

I hope this escapes censorship. Twitter’s anti-porn filters have blocked Dominic Cummings’ name despite Boris Johnson’s chief adviser dominating British political news for almost a week, the Guardian can reveal. As a result of the filtering, trending topics over the past five days have instead incl...

Moore's film seemed to be light on facts and quite churlish. It took George Monbiot 5 minutes or so to knock the positions taken into a cocked hat. Technology can - and has- made our lives better. Every measure of well-being indicates things are improving. Human ingenuity has always solved the prob...

You could have called it "Tangled Carpet", which would have seemed strange then ... but perfectly clear now.

How early are you getting out Cugel? Like you, I have been locked in The Theatre of The Absurd. Of course, you don't realise that we're incarcerated there or that you're one of the turns.

Re: Baldies, how do you protect your head from burning under your helmet.

Casquette all year round for me (peak keeps both sun & rain out of your eyes). Plus a thermal buff over the top in cold weather (because you can remove it on the move if you start to overheat). I abandoned the single use plastic overhat several years ago! :wink: Quite. I cannot understand these...
