Re: Cycling to work

I'm not sure where to hang this post, but here goes..... I've always cycled to work, and for me showers take too long. I find a sink, and have a quick scrub with a flannel. I'm dealing face-to-face with customers every day and must look presentable, and it works for me. I may be able to influence t...

Re: Walking trousers

Craghoper Kiwis. They do light and heavy weight also stretchy versions. Often sold half price at Debenhams.

Re: black ice

Ice can be more problematic under thawing conditions. A road can appear ok on the whole but parts that are sheltered or where the ice was thicker can be slower to thaw. Hit one of those patches when you are bowling along its virtually impossible to stay upright.

Re: Cycling to work

Definitely showers. After my long commute I need to wash my hair. Much quicker in the shower.

Re: Saddles (Probably Again)

I gave up on my Brooks saddle for the same reason. I now have a Selle Italia Diva. The whole saddle is longer so the cut out extends further forward taking pressure off the soft tissue that was previously being nipped and bashed on the rock solid nose of the Brooks. Thanks for the input. I've read ...

Re: Saddles (Probably Again)

Not wishing to hijack the thread but would appreciate input from you ladies. My wife and I got a tandem last year and we love it. I decided to fit it with Brooks B17 Imperial saddles (the one with the cut outs - hers is a S ladies version). I love mine but my wife is struggling with pressure from t...

Re: When I'm dead .........

Hi, No one can be forced to pay for another's funeral I think? Not sure your married partner is liable either? But if you have an estate will the law take your money before the will is read? In any event paupers funeral, got to be cremation is paid by council. I missed the bit about cremation until...

Re: Royal Park cycling - charged with offence

Going back to the initial incident, did the OP have to give their name and address to the cop, or could they have just chosen the right to remain silent? It's a bit a grey area. They could in theory arrest you, but for what, a bye law? Yes - I wonder about this.Many of these folk aren't actually po...

Re: Royal Park cycling - charged with offence

Was it a fixed penalty you were issued? If so, pay the fine and then forget about it. There should be no repercussions. A fixed penalty is basically a lawful bribe which if accepted by the recipient, avoids a court case. The issuing officer should only ever serve one if they have sufficient evidence...

Re: I know I was stupid to buy it...but now?

Thanks to every one of you who has taken the time to reply. It's helped a lot. I'll hang on at the mo' to see whether to split the S-Works until the cold light of day. Perhaps I can post a few images to help explain what I have. And I'll root out the Aldi special and have another bash on it. The bi...
