Re: ...why women's' cycling clothing is still mainly pink?

I imagine pink rather than say brown complements the shade of lipstick chosen.Also given how commonly pink is worn it means a cycle top etc will complement other parts of wardrobe.Grey and pink go well and you see many women with grey hair-especially when Covid took a grip. I somehow don't think th...

Re: When the police give an assaulted cyclist a warning

I am basing my opinions on English law ;- Having viewed the footage several times I have to come to the conclusion that the cyclist , in my opinion, over reacted to the presence of the black vehicle . He should not have ''slapped the bonnet '' and immediately launch into a tirade of abusive language...

Re: Ebikes and fitness

As for Holland no desire to visit-rather visit somewhere more interesting and more undulating. There are some quite hilly bits of Holland (more so than Denmark), but I agree not the most exciting. I couldn't seen the hills on Open Cycle Map; the contours were complete obliterated by the overwhelmin...

You,cycle mad, have chosen to personalise the issue by questioning 1.my abilkity to be a member of the railway police 2.my willingness to hav e my opinions challenged. I simply advocated that the police handle the stuation more thoughtfully,which is a constructive comment,based on having seen a min...

Re: One policeman doing his job on London trains

I always suspected many cyclists were angry people,with reactionary views.Must be full of ex=military types who worship Farage and Gove,and despise unions and anything vaguely at variance with their miopic provincialism.The above comments are proof of my suspicion. you sir are quite frankly taking ...

Re: One policeman doing his job on London trains

Re: One policeman doing his job on London trains

A white youth could have been used to substitute for the lad in question-they too display stubborness,The key thing is that the police lacked imagination and escalated matters rather defuse the situation.Both sides were acting up but police are trained profeassionals-sadly they were goaded and lost...
