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.
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 ...

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.
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.

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...
