Re: Cycle lock prize winner

The ideal situation would be either bike lockers everywhere, or bike stands with built in sturdy locks, so you don't have to carry the weight with you. That or the death penalty.

Re: The public spirit is alive and kicking...

So assuming the car that bent it must have been caught on CCTV too, a bill should be sent, 5 people, 4 minutes discussing strategy, 13 minutes bending it back. 5 x 17 = 85 minutes. Round up to 2 hours at £50 per hour. Bill the driver, include a fine for not being able to drive. Find the 5 people, gi...

Re: Is this dangerous?

Maybe there should be a new kind of cycle lane marking that continues in primary position, making it clear to drivers that cyclists should only be overtaken when the other lane is clear.

Re: Crap cyclepaths

I just can't figure out what the low barrier is intended to stop, it won't stop a motorbike, and the gap would be too narrow for a car to fit up if the low bit wasn't there at all. The slopes are ok if you're heavily laden, but I did meet one barrier with the slope straight after it, making it trick...

Re: Crap cyclepaths

I went for a ride last Saturday, mainly on cyclepaths, the main problem I had, wasn't the surfaces, although I did almost get stuck in the mud in one part, wasn't the lack of signs, which led to a few wrong turns, the problem was all the stupid barriers everywhere, drove me mad, including ones like ...

Re: Cyclist at fault, says Nottingham police

Think I'll email Nottinghamshire Police to ask how to give way once I see a hearse, clearly turning off the road is not acceptable, neither is staying on it, as it would obviously still be my fault if I'm hit by a car, perhaps jump off my bike and dive into someone's front garden?

Re: Brooks B17 @ Halfords - Bargain!

Just been able to order one of these as it was still in my basket at the old price, it was also appearing as a recently viewed item, so thought I'd try my luck by checking out, will see if it works though.
