Albums that were never made

I have often mused about why crtin artists have achieved success waybeyond their inherent talent.I know this may upset some people but that can be an ingredient for a succesful thread.I have a small list that others may wish to supplement with their own ideas 1.Cliff Richards;People Have Been Crucif...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

Yeah, contact the club, open yourself to more abuse if the ***** run the club. That's always worked so well for me in the past :roll:


That would depend on the force of your personality-it would not work for the sensitive type but i would try this tactic.

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

How about ... cycling through Newlyn last summer. Jules is on her e-bike. She has a chronic ankle injury with considerable nerve damage and cannot cope with a standard bike. At the traffic lights near the fish market a MAMIL in his Penzance Wheelers C.C. shirt shouts abuse at her for using an e-bik...

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

When I was on jury service one of the cases involved a claim of self defence. The judge explained that self defence involved reasonable and sufficient force to repel the attack and no more. Is killing someone reasonable force? You easily kill someone using reasonable force,for exaple pushing someone...

Re: The anti Corbyn Rant

I read that many Jews in parts of the world outside Europe did very little to help their fellow Jews whom were subjected to genocide.These Jews apparently condemned the Jews in Poland and elsewhere for their passivity and lack of resistance Americans had access to reliable information about the Nazi...

Re: Boy do I miss it !

This reminds me of a cyclist who went to the doctor in spring and when the doctor inquired about his visit the elderly man said "I have been unable to get an erection for 3 months!" at which point the trainee docotor left in hysterics,and the doctor answered sternly "At your age, sir,...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

I have been abused while cycling and have cycled alone in many parts of the USA,Portugal,France,India where a lone cyclist could be attacked.Some people are riskaverse and this would deter them from such ventures.In have also been spat at,squirted with liquids,stoned and various unpleasant experienc...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

I would think one thing stopping women from cycling is spending far too much time talking and typing about cycling,rather than going oiut for a good ride.I think many readers lack a sense of irony and are easily provoked by one or two obviously patronising and bigoted comments,which were read at fac...

Mavis wrote I would be really interested to know what on earth an interest in my appearance has got to do with pedalling on a bike?

Re: Sheffield's trees

I will make a comment about Sheffield trees.We have loads here and the numbers being removed are in low numbers.Many protesters do not live near the trees being cut down nand none appear to consult "us locals" for our viewpoint.The broad consensus is that many trees need attention and a fe...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

Hello Mavis I am delighted that you enjoy cycling but find it hard to do so alone.Why not try riding on bridleways where there are fewer cars?i really do not understand why cycling with another person will protect you from cars,or is it protectionn from predators you seek?I do regret you feel patron...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

I do not think anything is stopping women from cycling,but I would suggest many women find cycling incompatible with their self-image.For example many women choose to have their nails manicured,and spend more £ than men on hair cuts,make-up and other things which they seem to believe will make them ...
