Re: Why does ‘cyclist wearing dark clothing' exist as a contributory factor in KSIs

Simple reason

Car drivers assume they own the roads so any reason they can find for killing someone else is valid.

Bottom line is the majority of drivers are self righteous "I own my road" ********.

And I drive 9 different vehicles.

Re: Has anyone here used the blue pill?

I've used them and they work very very well. Only use a 1/4 of one at a time mind. Drink plenty water to avoid the headache,and tell the missus to be well prepared. They will get you over a bad spell caused by stress etc. Get a prescription and you can get about 8 pills for a £5. Buy them over the c...

Re: 90 Yr old cyclist stripped of World Champs in Drug Test

If steroids make you look and act that fit at 90 then count me in.

Cheating in competition is not on though but really, if using drugs helped you carry on being that fit into your 90's , why wouldn't you use them.?

Re: Alpkit

No idea what their kit is like as they have never had anything in stock that I was looking for at the time.

Nice kit, rubbish company.

Re: TV licensing...

They are not enforcers ! They are sales people. Ask to see their ID and it states that on it. Sales person for TVL. If they ever do manage to come to your door, they have no powers, at all. The only way you can be prosecuted for no license is if you freely admit to it. Remember the magic words. &quo...
