Re: Left or right foot de-cleating?

I’ve always unclipped my right foot, although on club rides I see most riders doing the opposite. At the moment I have a broken right ankle, so cannot ride anyway. I’ll have to see how flexible it is after healing.

Re: Halfords catalogue, 1965

I was surprised to see a day running light (for cars). I thought they were modern items.

Re: DAHON FOR TOURING

I did a two week moving on tour with CTC in Sardinia a few years ago on a Dahon. We used hotels, not camping, but we had full panniers. I think four or five people used them, mine being a Speed TR. The bikes coped well with the trip, although we found braking on the long mountain descents something ...

PR must be the future aim. I believe the UK is virtually the only major democracy to still use FPTP.

Re: Should the British bill the EU for saving it in WW2?

I think the OP just shows the misplaced sense of entitlement supporters of brexit have. I’ll be charitable, perhaps the comment was a failed attempt at irony :roll:

Re: downgrading with age.

It's not just to do with cycling. When my iPhone gave up the ghost recently I replaced it with a £2.99 pay as you go one. I've also stopped using my kindle and gone back to paper books from the library. When I changed my car a couple of months ago I bought a model without many of the fancy electroni...

Re: Speeding motorists

When driving I often use my cruise control function to ensure I do not exceed the limit. It's amusing to see potential offenders lining up behind. I sometimes flash my headlights at drivers obviously going too fast, especially in 20mph residential areas, but NOT if there's a speed trap ahead 8)

Re: Tipper crash in Bath

There is a safety initiative going on at the moment with local people issued with speed detectors. On BBC Points West last night there was a clip of a van driver using his phone whilst descending near the bottom of the hill, close to where the tradegy occurred.

Re: Tipper crash in Bath

The driver was at fault for trying to drive down the hill. I know it well and heavy vehicles are banned from it.

Re: Brexit and Farming.

Farming is a tiny industry now, about the same as hairdressing. If other countries want to subsidise their food production and sell it to us then great - cheaper food for us and we get some land back from under the plough. It should reduce land prices so we can have more room for houses, parks, hor...

Re: UK could pay to access the EU single market

The majority voted leave despite being told it could cost us £££££s. Many in the UK appear to have learned about the importance of things other than money. ... The majority were told that we don't need the experts who were telling us about the costs and that we would be fine. Many were encouraged t...
