Re: Incident this morning - City of London

I dont think that a low speed touching counts as any sort of offence. Rather like if cars touch mirrors while passing each other carefully. I remember once being enraged because a driver drove into me when I didnt get out of his way on a narrow lane but as there was no damage done, there wasnt anyt...

Re: Incident this morning - City of London

Well he drove off from the scene of an accident. Criminal Offence just for that. Looking at the photo I am sure that there should be video footage showing the incident.

Re: Tried and tested clothing brands/ideas

Altura for me too, apart from their gloves.

I have a transformer jacket. It's wind proof and breathable. The best thing is that you can take the arms off if you get too hot.

'Police Officers in London Fine Speeding Cyclists £1,000,000 ... But Enforcement Operation Costs £2,000,000' Isn't this whole business of having regular Police Officers hand out fines for minor infringements like using a mobile phone while driving or speeding utterly bonkers? In other countries non...

Cycle light holder and bar extender or batter holder - innov

I was looking for a bar extender for my bike light. On looking I found these new innovative new products. Don't need to clamp onto your handlebars, it actually fits onto your stem. But not just any stem mount it has a novel feature that it attaches to your stem bolts. I think this is a really novel ...

Re: Speeding cyclists on LBC now

So going at 5mph is essentially a cycle ban.
You might as well walk next to your bike.

There should be a mass protest of everyone running next to their bikes.

Going faster than 5mph but not actually cycling.

Number plates for cyclists....

I'm going to get bingo soon!

@Muhammad_Muneer: @LBC @clivebull put number plates on those things.
And get them insured, so next time when they hit your car, you can sue them for damages

Re: Speeding cyclists on LBC now

When you get comments like this......

@T50red: @LBC @clivebull it should be legal for pedestrians to push cyclists over if they ride on the pavement or don't stop at zebra crossings


There is no hope........

Speeding cyclists on LBC now

I'm afraid to say that the CTC is not really putting his points across very well or doing well with the answers.

I also think that he admitted that he was not in CTC for very long.
