Re: Base Layers ... Much Difference Between Them

I use M and S thermals , I find they keep me warm standing on corners whilst doing cycling training

Re: Mapometer - what else is there?

I've used Mapometer on and off for some years but of late I'm finding that creating tracks using the Draw Route feature and with Follow Roads selected, the routing is including footpaths, bridleways and other ways that are DEFINITELY NOT road riding territory.(I suspect it's been like this for some...

Re: Royal Park cycling - charged with offence

Hi everyone, I'm completely new here and I'm grateful to have found this forum, which I did because of my mad googling about a charge I've been given. I'd really appreciate any advice! I cycled over a pedestrian footbridge in regents park in November and was given a £60 fine. The police office took...

Re: What to pack when riding my first road bike

Guys I have just bought a new Trek Madone SLR7, and would like to know what you guys would recommend me taking with me in case if puncture or Di2 issue. I've been riding my mountain bike for over two years now, mainly on the road and haven't really taken anything with me. I have heard that road bik...

Re: Why He Stopped Wearing a Helmet

A colleague many years ago had his face completely mashed because his helmet went one side of an obstruction and his head to the other... so his face and head couldn't slide across the car door, they just had to stop on it... The helmet was caught on the rail for a rack. jaw in a few pieces, many t...
