Re: Scottish Access Query

Is your desired area in the city or out in the countryside ? Under the 2003 Land Reform Act any private property in a built up area is regarded as "curtilage" and excluded from access privileges. In areas outside of built up areas the Access Code allows estate managers, pretty much on a wh...

Re: Oban-Fort William cyclepath at Ledaig

You would think that a caravan site operator would notice how many of their customers arrive with bicycles and conclude that having a direct link to a safe cycle network would be a big added attraction. Anyway, I just checked and the online part of the petition was up to 550.

Re: Using corrosion protection spray. Advice sought.

I am assembling a bike from parts. I bought an aerosol tin of waxoyl for £10. About half of the can seemed to be enough to do the frame and forks. The frame is black. The day after spraying the frame was very sunny. Leaving the bike sitting in the sun resulted in the frame warming up and a lot of ex...

Re: Looking for my first hybrid

Hallo, Good luck with the bike buying. What some shops describe as a "hybrid" bike is also sometimes called a "trekking" or "town" bike. There was an article in a recent club magazine which reviewed some decent entry level bikes; you can find a pdf of the article at: ht...

Re: Water Carrier

Resident of Scotland here. Water falls out of the sky in great amounts; you don't have to travel far to find some, even when it hasn't rained for days. I use a simple cloth filter and chlorine dioxide tablets; the tablets treat one litre of water. A lot of one litre pop bottles (Irn Bru and the like...

What is the trailer in the background of the last photograph, do they have rickshaws in York now?


I think it was a family with a cargo trike. There were a few of them dotting about.

Re: Power bank

Its a well known (or at least I thought so) flash sale site specialising in sporting equipment. All flash sale sites I am aware of require you to be a "member" as I think it's part of their tax dodge. You seem to be being needlessly confrontational... Ok, will try again. You asked for adv...
