Re: lorry passing too close

Write back to them and tell them that as they have failed to address your genuine concerns regarding their operation of HGVs, you will be addressing these concerns with their Traffic Commissioner. Write to their local Traffic Commissioner, explaining your concerns. I guarantee you will now be taken ...

Re: Garmin Tour mapping

You may not be able to use Garmin Maps. Check before buying. You can certainly use Velomaps.

Re: Garmin Tour mapping

Yup, I've checked. It will accept multiple maps. You can have a map for every activity if you wish. Give Velomap a try.

Re: Garmin Tour mapping

It's all about the maps and how they prioritise routes which suit you. Find the right map set and you will be happy. My preference is for Velomaps and the Garmin routing set to 'car'. This gives very cycle friendly routes.

Re: Comparasion - Road Bike about £800

Of course if it is quality and value you are after, avoiding the 'big' brands is often beneficial. eg. http://www.decathlon.co.uk/fc-7-road-bi ... 03211.html or http://www.decathlon.co.uk/fc-3-road-bi ... 21749.html
