Re: Don't trust the indicators...

Glad you walked away with no injuries, that could off been a lot worse especially as from the look of it your on a trike. i tend to hesitate & double guess all drivers intentions regardless of their indications.

I'll give them some credit, they know where their indicators are, unlike most :lol:

Re: Energy bars and energy fluids

I’m partial to the sis energy go powder, add to your water helps with a constant supply of carbs & electrolytes throughout your ride if I need anything else more substantial I grab it at the coffee stop.

Amen,

That would be an amazing Christmas miracle, one which deep down everyone would love to come true.

Even if a rule of such came to pass, law enforcements are stretched thin & it would be near impossible for them to enforce. It’s a personal preference, the governments should leave it that way & concentrate on improving city cycling networks . The bicycle is a simple solution to some of the ...

Re: Porridge: love or hate?

I do love porridge,especially with the many varieties of extras you can add so it’s not monotonous, personally it’s more of a winter food for me.

Re: oily rag

That's not a bad idea to be fair, its something that's never occurred to me to try, tho I'm a fan of Muc-off products i.e. spray protect so after a wet ride all I have to do is wipe off the beaded water.

Re: Excess price rise(s)?

Continental make a great tyre, personally I swear by their gatorskins. However, tyres are a great place to spend money, in that you tend to get real and noticeable benefits by paying more, unlike many things in bicycle-land. I have to agree, it very surprising how much difference I good tyre can make.
