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: 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.
