E-bikes,scooters and motorbkies

I am really puzzled why anyone should choose to buy such a bike.In my opinion they are similat to those things ridden round by OAPs,and the less fortunate-I think they are dubbed nobiity scooters,presumable because the peers,knight and dames once had sole claim to their use.These people seem to flou...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

I thank the above post-holders.The average cyclist probably drives a car,and once inside their vehicle many are not concerned with the cyclist.Lorry drivers are quite professional and capable-much better than the typical motorist.I know several lorry drivers who cycle frequently but are scared to &q...

It's very easy to claim that most drivers of motor vehicles break the law, and I can say that because it is simply the culture in the UK that some law breaking in a motor v...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

I think people are demonising lorry drivers.I really dont know how someone can claim the majority break the law.I do feel that more people need to stick to dedicated cycle paths,and leave the roads clear for the grown-ups.I bet the same people who winge buy goods from Amazon,order groceries online a...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

I love cycling along country lanes and we are very lucky and have a lot of them on our doorstep. What puts me off most are the truck drivers who drive aggresively and far too closely in an intimidating way. Maybe most male cyclists would probably just be mildly annoyed and brush it off but being a ...

Re: The String Test for are you too fat?

That string test was a farce-it was simplistic and misleading.Some people has distended stomachs due to beer consumption,others have etra weight on their hips.Man was designed to move and if you do not move you are likely to develop heatlth issues.I do not believe doctors really know about obesity.I...

Re: Did you get married in clothes related to your work or other activity?

It would be absurd to wearwork-clothes to a wedding.Those that do this must place a rather too much importance on their occupation,and their own ego.Surely a marriage requires the two participants to relinquish their separate indivdual identities and forge a bond with their partner.it would reduce a...

Re: Tower Block Disaster

You're describing to me a governmental failure on a huge scale. The need for more social and affordable housing under this government which,after nearly a decade in office,has failed to even make a dent in. Instead of working the country's way out of recession caused by previous similar governmenta...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

I always feel safe ... This is England ..not Afganistan, Iraq, or Mexico ... We are safe. If you want invent danger to control your family go ahead ... Invent bogey men, stranger danger, et al. Terrify the kids ... Cycling's dangerous, swimming is dangerous and so on. They are actually more at risk...

Re: Hither Green 'burglar' stabbing: Man, 78, arrested

I do not think the funeral merits a mention in the news.It actually gave certain characters an opportuniy to gain further publicity.The cevnt can be recorded without a BBC presence with asimple dignified announcement.Whatever the rights and wrongs of the death,the man in the cofin is entitled to qui...

Re: Fairing

I have been told that farting can be cleared by modifying the diet.You could keep a daily dairy and record what you are at each meal.Also consume more water and less alcohol.
