Re: Stop Killing our Children

Cugel The biggest fear for a criminal is being caught,if being caught means they lose something dear which such as money(high fines) or liberty(incarceration, loss of licence to drive,curfew,etc),but for those things to happen society needs an effective and just police force and judiciary system. O...

Re: Jaywalking is now a thing in the UK

I had no idea that if you pressed the button and the traffic cleared after you press it, the lights won't change. I guess that's down to the detector things on top. Its clever but for someone raised in a country where jaywalking is illegal it kind of goes against the grain. I sometimes think the li...

Re: Jaywalking is now a thing in the UK

Must adhere to the green man. Car take precedence. Quite right too. If you've got a red light against you, obey it. Whether you're in a car, on a bike, or walking. And if you don't obey it, you should be put in the stocks in the middle of the village square, and pelted with rotten fruit till you ch...

Re: Shouty Helmet wearer

I wonder if helmet wearers ever get shouted at by non-believers? Under my breath I do! Saw a couple of riders the other day, riding on the footway/pavement. I wanted to stop and tell them to .......... A. Get off the footpath onto the road. B. Stop wearing a silly helmet because you're riding a bik...

Re: Help me! Complete novice who needs to travel with toddler.

A decent hybrid bike with rack and pannier(s) plus a good child seat like hamax siesta that can tilt back. Panniers and a child seat? I had a Hamax Siesta and was never able to fit a pannier at the same time. It depends upon the positioning of both. On my hybrid, I could use both child seat & p...

Re: Help me! Complete novice who needs to travel with toddler.

As a single father of three sons(all their lives) just my word of caution, as a driver like most of us are, i would personally never have a youngster on a bike on the main road especially one of those LOW follow me things, just think how invisible to morons recumbent bikes are. You may be the most ...

Re: Help me! Complete novice who needs to travel with toddler.

A decent hybrid bike with rack and pannier(s) plus a good child seat like hamax siesta that can tilt back. I used a Hamax Siesta, an my daughter did like it (and often fell asleep). But rear child seats aren't for the uninitiated, IMHO. Before spending money on it, I would suggest you have a go at ...
