Re: Would you cycle on a 'shared' pavement on the wrong side of the road?

what's the problem if you are not sharing the space with cars. On Thursday evening when the weather was 'lively' I was cycling on a short section of shared use path on 'the wrong side of the road'. With the headlights of the oncoming cars shining at me I didn't see the tree branch that had blown on...

Re: Carol Boardman death - charges preferred

It's a waste of time telling the BBC about this. They know they are not supposed to frame a comment like that after any incident, they have even said so, but they do it regardless. Frustrating as it is, we should always pull them up when they write in this thoughtless way. If it goes unchallenged t...

How many pedestrians are killed by motorists?

I ask this while observing the media coverage and sheer column inches generated over the Charlie Alliston case. Like most cyclists, I regard Alliston's behaviour in riding an illegal bike as stupid and dangerous but I am aware of only 2 other cases in the past 10 years of cyclists killing pedestrian...

Re: Disgusting littering ...by cyclists

Correct me if I'm wrong - (it has been known :D ) but In my experience CO2 bulbs for cycle inflation are threaded big_d47f6a14-0457-4f73-ac94-b40d44ba73e7.jpg in order for them to be screwed into an inflator. N2O on the other hand, bought on the premise that they are to be used as a propellant for w...

Does anyone know why helmets vary in price so much?

Does anyone know why helmets vary in price so much? I've had my helmet for a number of years and am thinking that I should probably replace it. Looking in the LBS they vary from £30 - £160 I can't imagine that the production costs can be that much more, are the expensive ones safer? If anyone can po...

Re: Spot the mistake-s ?

I have always put the tyre levers in on either side of the valve not on the other side of the wheel as in this vid :- push the valve in to the tyre and then put the levers in - this ensures that the tube is safely away from the rim and you won't pinch it with the levers creating a bigger problem tha...

Re: Cycling to school

No one in their right mind would have a problem with a cyclist following a 6 year old riding on a pavement surely? As an experienced cyclist It may feel a little odd but you are encouraging your child to cycle! : Until she / you feel confident enough for her to use the road then use the pavement and...

Re: How to secure a head torch to a helmet?

I did say I use a head torch to see my cycle computer at a glance rather than waiting until I pass under a street light. Nothing about dazzling anyone. Common sense dictates that I don't have it super bright, focused to a pin-point or pointing straight into the eyes of anyone else. As for the car dr...
