And that was the civil servants! here we just glibly except any c£%p we get. Not th...

Scallops play hell with my arthritis, but could be worse.

Re: Halfords - service

Priced a pair of pedals on their interweb site some time ago; quite a good price, (they were replacements for SWMBO's commuting bike) went to local store and they agreed to price match but refused to give me my 10% CTC (sorry showing age but old habits die hard) discount in addition. But came away w...

Re: EdwardianAttire

There used to be a similar group in Suffolk; if my memory serves me correctly they were known as the: Haughley and District Gentleman's Cycling Association. If you can find a link on the inter-web might be worth enquiring.

Re: A place to record lenient sentencing for motorvehicle....

Not sure this has been previously covered but nevertheless. About a week or so ago on my local TV news BBC Look North there was a solicitor calling for more lenient sentences for those living in rural communities apprehended for drunk driving.
