Re: Do you love your job?

No. I hate it. Or more correctly, I hate my 'new' employer. Everything was fine and dandy for 16 years until I was TUPE'd over to my new employer following a merger. My previous role simply doesn't exist in the company I've been transferred over to so I've been re-roled into the nearest equivalent ...

Chasing the motorist for 'compo' sounds risky to me. So, putting aside any potential permanent injury you feel you might have, then it broadly sounds like the financial costs of repairs are about the same to you and the motorist so my advice would be to chalk it up to experience and get on with your...

Re: Not sure which bike to get as a commuter

I've stopped commuting now but when I started I bought a Giant Escape 3 in the end of season sale for £240 and had the shop fit the Giant mudguards for an extra £20. It was perfect for my short urban commute and I liked the heads up position. No need for front suspension IMHO.

That strikes a chord with me as I seriously neglected my training bike last winter and, sure enough, the road salt did it's damage but the only two items I had to bin were the chain and brakes.

Re: Looking for a good hybrid bike

When I was a cycle commuter I thought my Giant Escape 3 was ace. Good looking and great value for money.

Re: Beryl Burton - The Greatest

Greatest Women Cyclist - A very strong candidate. Greatest sportsperson ever? No. Who might be the greatest sportsperson ever? I suppose it depends on era, nationality and possibly you're own favourite sport. For me, Steve Redgrave would be right up there with Mo Farah Mo recently (see what I did t...
