Re: The (ir)responsibily of the Media

I always put up a link to this The terrible journalists guide to writing an article about bicycles and simply ask if that was the inspiration.

Often opens the writer to some ridicule, and at least light hearted references to the link

Re: Public Places Protection order bans cycling on NCN route

What needs to be remembered is that it is local Councils that decide these routes. They then become an NCN by default Cycle facility design is often poor, and when this eventually becomes recognised, changes are made which disrupts the NCN. The route is still there as a whole though. I remember when...

Re: Public Places Protection order bans cycling on NCN route

[ The Council also have a legal duty to provide access for disabled people, many of whom use cycles. Really, the cycling disabled are somewhat thin on the ground here in Yorkshire, especially in towns. Doesn't mean they cannot be catered for. My wife is disabled and used to ride a recumbent trike w...

Re: Dangerous Radiation?

Decathlon have no obvious tags - they sew them into garments - our shop was a short way from the local store and it was a regular thing that they'd set our detectors off. Personally I think helmet lights are a bad idea for road riding, the rear light often can't be seen at all and the front is cons...

Re: Printers

I think that your diagnosis of the current problem is correct. Printer cartridges are expensive eg they do say that the price of printers is kept low by a cross-subsidy from selling the ink. For starters you need replacement cartridges and your printer will try to self-clean. I think there's genera...

Re: Prescription Charges

[ It's an easy check to make though - a minute or so if you have a Govt Gateway login, slightly longer if you have to register first. AFAIK this Government Gateway malarkey is quite a recent thing. If you find it easy and fruitful can I assume you have a passport or maybe a picture driving licence?...

Re: Attempt to charge NI pedest for causing night accident rather than mention driver for overdriving headlamps..

Anyone who has cycled in a Town or City knows how irrational SOBER pedestrians are, nd how many times you have to avoid them. Do we assume therefore that ALL such cases are the cyclist fault? There is insufficient clarity as to what happened for anyone to make a real and valid judgement. All that c...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Apparently Trump cut business taxes from 35% to 21% and tax revenues have increased by $3.3 trillion! Al Corporate tax revenues may have increased 3.3 trillion, but considering it went from 294.1 trillion to 297.4 trillion, that is less than the rate of inflation, so it doesn't look like success to...

Re: How do you change a tyre on a cargo trike?

Add 4 small “stops” to the front of the box.

Most trikes will stand “on end” close to a wall with the seat/ rear frame

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

So you think there's no room for persuasion ? It's apparent that we have a divided nation over this issue and that's not a good thing. Don't you think it might be beneficial if the leave side were to present, as R2 says,' good argument and facts that brexit is a good and positive course of action f...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Are you saying that you didnt understand the situation? I am saying that between 11% and 18% (depending on polls) of those who voted to leave regret that they did so, also that for the first time, the polls show that the number of people wishing to reverse the vote has become the majority. Then we ...
