Re: Best headline I've seen in a while...

I'm all for it,albeit for selfish reasons,but if you look at the bigger picture the "net carbon neutral" spin is a bit misleading.Maybe when up and running they will be but what about the process leading up it? I'm no eco-warrior,if I were I'd be a hypocrite as I know see much electricity ...

Re: Welcome to Yorkshire in trouble

I don’t think it has anything to do with the virus.Like a lot of businesses they’re shielding behind it to hide from deeper issues.Pity really but not surprising.

Re: Would you take a vaccine against CV?

I won't be having the vaccine.I'm not a C-19 denier or anti-vaxxer I just don't want it for the same reasons I don't have the yearly flu-jab.I might change my mind in 4 or 5 years if the vaccine proves to be safe,I might not. Come, come, please don’t be silly. These things are laid on the table for ...

Re: Beer Prices

I have yet to find a beer/ale that tastes anything like the real thing from a bottle or can :cry: If I buy beer to drink at home I'll get one of those draught kegs from one of the local breweries.It's more expensive but at least it tastes like it should! If I buy cans or bottles I get Lager as that'...

Re: Starting a group ride

You could ask the local cycling clubs if they are considering arranging group rides on days other than Sundays, there are likely to be others who have similar time constraints as you do. One of the CC I ride with has done just this.A couple of members mentioned an unofficial Saturday ride a few mon...

Re: How would past champions compete today

Times and attitudes have moved on so much in the last 20 years let alone 50 and I think even the “domestiques” today are much fitter and stronger than GT winners of the past.Even putting Merkcx,Hinault,Lemond in their prime on modern bikes I just don’t think they’d be any where near fit enough.

Re: Help me surprise my hubby with a cycle trainer for Christmas please!

As above.Smart trainers can end up being an expensive ornament if not wanted. There are many sub £250 Smart trainers which are compatible with any 700c wheeled bikes(Tacx flow etc) The Direct Drive trainers(where you remove the rear wheel) start at around £600 and TBH at that price range they’re all...

Re: A salutary tale......caveat emptor

I very rarely sell anything bike related on Forums.If it’s worth less than £20(IMO) I offer it for free.I have done this for many years and it’s only backfire twice in that time.No money changes hands but I’m still totally honest about the condition and always post photos.My most recent were two lit...

It’s embarrassing listening to his rambles.The man needs help.Some of his supporters even more so.

Re: Sainsburys Don't Bother

We gave up on both Tesco and Asda home deliveries after numerous mistakes and omissions.Their idea of replacement product was a joke!
I can't think of one order that was 100% correct.

Your details are known anyway so I wouldn't worry about another party knowing them :wink: We don't really know who holds data about us if we're honest!
I've used FB/IG/Twitter/WhatsApp/Messenger for years with absolutely no issues!

Re: ...why women's' cycling clothing is still mainly pink?

However when I am out cycling I see quite a few female cyclists wearing pink tops, and I haven't yet seen a bloke in one. A few friends wear the Pink Rapha Jersey when cycling.They have also incorporated a pink flash into the CC kit.I regularly see a bloke on the road with pink shoes/socks/overshoes.
