Re: escooters get contolled in France

Handling probably indeed poor - but so much cooler than a mobility scooter! And it's pretty much a straight line from home to shops.

Re: How was Cycling 2019 for you?

Not too bad. Modest I know, but just over 4000 miles so far the highest annual since 2012, despite being away sans bike for 6 weeks and ever decreasing lung volume. Just be careful.this is exactly how I felt before the incident. Ran out of breath cycling on the flat and walking across town. Gp sent...

Re: How was Cycling 2019 for you?

Not too bad. 4145 miles, my highest since 2012, despite more holidays than usual. At 71 with almost-extreme COPD, do for me!

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

It's sad and salutary seeing people getting what they actually voted for rather than what they thought they voted for. I think most of them knew exactly what they voted for, their only disappointment will be if the Tories fail to be quite as racist and anti-immigrant as they hope(d) for. Johnson wi...

Re: Where to go to flee b****t (This Madness) or jockxit

I am not going to be driven out by this nasty gang: I lived here through the Thatcher years and I refuse to let de Piffle take my country away from me. You should have a "stay " option. Pretty much same here. This is "my" country, not that of the extreme right now in power. No s...

Re: Puncture resistant tyres for my road bike

On the grounds that ANY will succumb some time I go for easiest go get off/on with cold wet hands when they do! And carry two tubes and half a dozen gas canisters.

Taken crack or heroin. Unlike most of the other similar. So there's one 2020 target!

Re: Bar end mirror

Can these things (or any like them) be fitted to straight handlebars? Wife has arthritis in shoulder, back and knees, and rear-checking is difficult so we thought about a mirror before but everything seemed geared for drop bars. Something that clamps on would probably be best as I don't like the id...

Re: Bar end mirror

Having fitted a Mirricycle mirror (insert into flat barred bike) a few weeks ago I find myself thinking...."why oh why did I not do this years ago?" Apart from first one or two m'cycles that I had decades ago I always used mirrors on PTWs, so why didn't I on pedal machines? Just so useful....

Re: Goodbye Old England - It's Time We Were Gone

More like, "Hello old England". It'll soon be back to intolerance of every ilk & tittle, open class warfare, jingoism and all the fine sentiments of the Victorian era albeit with no empire to nod to as a badge of Blighty racial superiority. How long before the first popular war? It'll...
