Re: Highway Code inappropriate rules

No,those are advisory,and I believe that's been proven in court.. Like I posted,yer splitting hairs Courtesy of gaz above, 'Accordingly, whatever Cycling UK's views may be regarding helmets and clothing being personal choices, and whatever the safety merits of either may be, the reality is that the...

Re: Highway Code inappropriate rules

So I MUST obey a traffic sign that shows 'no through road'? -this sign is intended to be advisory but apparently the Highway Code requires cyclists to obey! ..."No through road" and "Cyclists dismount" (rectangles) are information, you Must obey the sign by noting the informatio...

Re: Highway Code inappropriate rules

"You must" means it's the law. In the case of speed limits they can't be enforced where cyclists are concerned because cyclist aren't required to have speedometer by law,but there is a law against "furious cycling" which can be brought against a cyclist. On roads where there is ...

Re: Highway Code inappropriate rules

This topic has probably been covered before but I have searched and have not found any thread...... By coincidence, it's only a couple of days to the tenth birthday of the thread which announced the CTC's successful Highway Code campaign: Highway Code cracked: more than 40 rules changed! https://fo...

Highway Code inappropriate rules

This topic has probably been covered before but I have searched and have not found any thread... Rather than a discussion of each of the below points, I wonder how the Department for Transport came up with these rules. Was any cycling organisation consulted? Did experts point out that these (and oth...

Re: Good (enjoyable, scenic) routes between Ely and Harwich

Thanks for the non-ferry route to Ipswich.

If I were to use the harbour ferry to get from Harwich to Ipswich, what is better
1) Route 51 Felixstowe to Ipswich or
2) Shotley to Ipswich.

If from Shotley, what route?

Good (enjoyable, scenic) routes between Ely and Harwich

I'm off to the Netherlands in a month and plan to use the overnight ferry between Harwich and Hook of Holland both outbound and on return. I have a robust touring bike so a bit of rough surface isn't too bad. The start and end are in Ely, Cambs with a day to get there and a day to get back so I have...

Re: Shared use: pedestrians or motors?

Do you have evidence it is not? After all, evidence is important, you see. Not that I actually care either way, but seeing as you're so keen about evidence I thought you'd like to shows us the evidence that supports your preference? Or are you only interested in evidence when people challenge your ...

Re: Shared use: pedestrians or motors?

Adnepos, can't you just use the carriageway without having to get the cycle path removed? The path might encourage some people to cycle into work and that can only be a good thing. 'Security personnel' won't let cyclists through the road access allegedly for fear that the barrier will come down on ...

Re: Shared use: pedestrians or motors?

Boys boys boys... I have permission. If you have evidence for cycling on a quiet, 20 mph-limited road being 'better' than using a pedestrian.cyclist shared route then tell me where it is. The DfT hierarchy is good but on private property, is not imperative. Evidence is everything.

Shared use: pedestrians or motors?

I use a private road with a near-uniformly observed 20 mph limit and light use, yet a pedestrian.cyclist shared use path (not wide enough :( but let's put that to one side) has been installed alongside the road. It would have been easy to segregate all three modalities but that is yet another issue....

that susceptible, yes.
But for most with diabetes on insulin, the situation is something like a 'healthy person' becoming tired while driving.
