I have a previous version of the same shoe - the RT30. I always take a 43, size 9 (and I mean - always) but with these I needed a 45. Whilst looking to buy these shoes I learnt a lesson, for me at any rate, that it was pointless trying to buy cycling shoes over the internet. I found myself spending ...

The Leicestershire Wolds, Vale of Belvoir and Vale of Trent. This is where i do most of my riding. There are some delightful villages that would be honeypots if they were in the Cotswolds. The roads are virtually deserted. There are rolling hills north of Rutland Water, going up towards Belvoir Cas...
I know there are a number of advanced drivers on this forum. You (and others) may be interested to know that the latest and updated Roadcraft manual (Police drivers and advanced driving textbook) has just been published. The first major revamp since 2007.

I'd like to address Michael42s comments, although I hope I have interpreted your points correctly. Apologies in advance if not. You seem to be suggesting that one should only listen to medical practitioners and avoid a possible trap of listening to anecdotes that only reinforce what you want to hear...

Gosh, a civilised and accurate account of VED on a news website? I'm shocked! That makes me happy, +1. Given that the BBC is typically vilified around this forum as soon as they get one word out of place regarding cyclists, isn't this article rather refreshing and deserving of some credit? Surely u...
Very late to this post, due to holidays etc, but just to express my sympathies with you over the incident Hexholme and I'm pleased that you have obtained a satisfactory outcome. Thanks for keeping us updated. You mentioned you had the option to chose a remedy and chose a Bikeability course? What sco...

In recent times I've started to use a lot more, the local Grantham Canal path which has a good surface in many parts and is subject of shared use. Also, a number of the small lanes in the area of the Vale of Belvoir can be blessedly free of cars, but with pedestrians (walkers etc) often spread out a...

Hats off to the OP if you regularly cycle on the A453 towards the M1 interchange. Rather you than me. :shock: Hopefully the upgraded carriageway will be as good as the nearby A46 upgrade. I would say the new A46 dual carriageway (relatively) nearby between Kinoulton & Newark demonstrates a prett...
A few observations to contribute to the debate; They closed our village Police station, but instead opened up a little office adjacent to the school (not because the school has problems necessarily, but because it was convenient). Although being sceptical I have to admit that you do see Police prese...
There was a time when cyclists appeared to share a common bond and felt sympathy for each other. But with the growth in cycling this will diminish (e.g. when I started commuting across Brum 20years ago I hardly ever saw another cycle-commuter but when I did we'd wave and say 'hello', these days I s...
On a (semi) serious note about the nut issue. I am left wondering as to what briefings patients of nut allergies are given, - in terms of looking out for themselves? I'm sure some labelling is most useful as manufacturers will use the same production line for multiple products and there may be a ris...
