Re: Are there just too many cars on the road today?

I will give up my car when the public transport can get me to and from my place of work in a reasonable time and within the time limits I require.


Has it ever crossed your mind that if there was less cars on the roads, the buses wouldn't get held up?

I'm just putting it out there.

Is that how you construe: 'I made a remark on the dangers of doing this- - - '?


No, it's the "Do not do it!" attitude because it might be unsafe.

Re: No Mudguards???

aren't they just more stuff to carry up hills


Are you serious? in the scheme of things they weigh practically nothing.

more stuff to buy


If you can afford a bike, you can afford guards if you want them.

more stuff to go wrong


go wrong? it's a plastic fitting to your bike.

Re: slipstreaming ettiquete

Still think you should ditch the headphones, though. I love loud music too, but it's unquestionably dangerous if you're riding a bike.


It's about confidence and knowing what's going on around you (we do have eyes you know), a quick look over your shoulder now and again does the trick.
