Re: 2020 Tour de France

Pog Bah! Van Aert and Dumoulin have been leading the yellow jumper around France for two weeks. Pogačar has been sitting behind it, mostly. Of course he should beat them in a time trial as tough as that: he is the Slovenian national time trial champion, after all; but I don't think anyone was expect...

Re: Off-lead dogs on shared paths?

I voted NO in the poll because there were only two options. Most shared paths I use ask dog-walkers to keep dogs on a short lead.This does not stop some walkers letting their dog wander 20ft in front of them on an extendable lead.This can be even more dangerous than an off lead hound. The issue is n...

Re: The whole glasses thing

Mine Optilabs are Driveware. Not sure that I'd pick them again, as they're tinted even in the dark. Difficult wearing them in the evenings or early mornings on the bike. I am absolutely certain that recently (within the last 4 or 5 years) the lens option for driving was marked as not suitable for s...

Re: Wahoo to strava: Heart Rate Monitor

Have to admit I no longer use a HRM monitor on the bike (NB. Suppose it stopped when I pretty much swapped from high speed road biking to moderate speed long rides. But still use a HRM as a matter of routine in other exercise. And have slowly realized that I'm still basing my heart rate on that req...

Re: Bamburgh - Lindisfarne

I'm local and wouldn't cycle along A1 if you paid me! And I'm a fairly fear-free cyclist. I wouldn't cycle along the A1 down here where it's basically a Motorway but I found the stretch up there to be no different to any other A-road.In fact I'd rather cycle on that than some of the a-roads in the ...

Re: Would you report your neighbours?

Agreed limit? Agreed by who?This is a limit imposed on us. I did not mention "baseball bat assault".You did.Repercussions come in many forms.Choose your preference. As mentioned above if you are prepared to stoop to snitching on your neighbours for trivial things then you should at least ...

Re: The whole glasses thing

Mine Optilabs are Driveware. Not sure that I'd pick them again, as they're tinted even in the dark. Difficult wearing them in the evenings or early mornings on the bike. Interesting. When I spoke to Optilabs about my needs they assured me that although slightly tinted at all times they were good to...

Re: Bamburgh - Lindisfarne

I was up there in August and rode from Seahouses to Lindisfarne via Belford then up the minor roads to Fenwick then West Mains.I found the A1 crossing quite easy as it's not that busy.I can't comment on the track you mean as I didn't ride it but I gave up trying to cross the causeway to the island a...

Re: The whole glasses thing

They offered to look at my Optilabs cycling glasses to see if they can put new lenses in them too ...... for half-price. I'm doubtful they can do it, and I'm doubtful that the frame is worth it as it's sweat-damaged on the arms. Maybe they can. Optilabs do a reglazing service. I've just sent mine o...

Re: Would you report your neighbours?

IMO anyone who "shops" neighbours for having family round under these stupid C-19 "rules" deserves any repercussions that follow.These people should not have anonymity.I have no time for people like that. If its a party/BBQ etc with 20/30/40 people then have a quiet word...or a ...

Re: Gang of six-impact on Xmas

The lockdown brought those numbers into controllable levels. Absolutely no evidence to suggest this. What are you suggesting? We let everyone now run around as if nothing has happened? After all there is only 4 people in hospital at present? Yes that makes perfect sense and is exactly what needs to...
