Re: East Ridng rural village under threat

Is the problem because it's a prison or would a new factory provoke the same outcry? A new factory with the same level of traffic would also be bad for the location. A prison is somewhat different, in that drug dealers may frequent the area and prisoner being released may have no home to go to. A c...

Re: East Ridng rural village under threat

The development would result in about 32000 trips per month and a proportion would use part of the NCN. Many cyclists from the York area use these roads on a regular basis in addition to locals and tourists. A very small proportion of staff may use a bicycle but 95% of journeys would be by car. Abou...

Re: East Ridng rural village under threat

Hoping a QC is reading this and can help out. In the East Riding a mega prison planning application for Full Sutton with an additional prison for 1440 inmates has been approved, close to the NCN route 66. The area is used by cyclists frequently from across the area, especially from York. The prison ...

see Table 12 for reported differences between helmeted and non-helmeted in the USA
The BMJ report details for alcohol 2% v 15%.
It appears other factors could be involved.

Re: Cycling UK conference and agm

i attended AGMs in Reading, Northalleron and other places. Hearing people speak, local representatives on CTC Council, it provided more interest than perhaps one or two motions and ballet paper, apart from the usual motions on regular business. Even with a prior conference not many members seem to h...

Re: York Rally 2019: 22-23 June

i think Paul Touhy was there, so perhaps he will give it a mention in Cycle. Did Cycling UK have a stall?

Re: Cycling UK conference and agm

According to reports from attendees the AGM attendance in the room was around 25 including trustees. With 12 trustees and one legal advisor and one finance advisor plus the CEO and the minutes taker and plus say 2 other staff. It could mean the number of ordinary CTC members in attendance was around...

i don't know the area but it seems a possible river crossing may be near Troop Road and could connect to the airport?

Designing for motor vehicles and not for people walking and cycling, inclusive design is needed for all urban areas.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_-wVOMLS7w Some helmet laws have been repealed. Helmet requirements damage bike hire schemes, set the scene for reducing compensation to people not wearing, increase the accident rate, discourage cycling with the health and environmental consequences. It is good for ...

Re: Helmet discussions in York

In the event of an accident and compensation could such details as on U tube be used in a court or compensation issue?
