Mary,

How does it work if you make it the night before and keep it in the fridge? Is it still good in the morning? How long can you keep it for?

Cheers,

David.

But there’s another dilemma – washing the pads. The pads that I’m replacing seem to be designed for removal for “maintenance” – well thought out I’d say. It’s common sense to keep the pads clean – washing the salt out and doing one’s best to keep any infection and/or fungal spores at bay – and this...

Re: Re I.C.E

There is a Company that I use and many bikers do to have dog tags made which we use for 'Alert Tags' which is based in Burton On Trent, Staffs. A set of two tags which can be custom made with any details you require will be sent to you for £4.99 which can then be placed on your panniers, under your...

Sounds iffy... looking here it says: Will they just let you die if they know you want to be a donor? No. The doctors looking after a patient have to make every possible effort to save the patient's life. That is their first duty. If, despite their efforts, the patient dies, organ and tissue donation...

A number of better ideas have come out of this thread like the road ID, Thats a good one I'm going to get one made up for my bag :) They are really well made - you wont be disapointed! My only thoughts are that when you crash badly you will be seperated from all your gear - it took me a few trips r...

Hey, Might be worth describing what you want from your GPS... I found that the majority of what I wanted could be done by a simple bike computer. And the rest of the functions could be done with a paper map. I still bought one, but its £100 I didnt need to spend on another toy I dont really use! ;) ...

I always wear a Road ID.

I have needed it once, it was very nice to have my wife at the hospital when I got there.

Shipping from the States was fast.

I never thought I would be thankful for Strathclyde Police's general attitude of "ignore the cyclist and he/she will go away"... Although critical mass does seem a bit counter productive - bike snob nyc has it pretty much spot on in my book: So while I’ll begrudge nobody his or her Critica...

Of course there's no knowing what was in the officers mind but he does 'look' like he's trying to pick a candidate for a showdown. I don't think it's helped by the current NYPD police chief rewriting the parade laws to try and put an end to CM in New York. He seems to have created a climate whereby...

Separate Forum for Helmets

I was wondering if we could have a separate forum thingy for helmet threads... somewhere waaaaayyy over there :wink:

Really though, it would stop the weekly threads popping up with the same banter...

Re: CTC statutory offroad cycling body??????

Why is Roger Geffin doing so little for the CTC mountainbike community? There is no one in post to do access work. No leadership from either Roger or Kevin and no direction. There should be someone in post to actively co-ordinate and cajole members to check on their local authority's improvement pl...
