Re: "Decide for yourself"

The question it seems is why doesn't CyclingUK follow the spirit of its own published policy on helmets? https://www.cyclinguk.org/campaigning/views-and-briefings/cycle-helmets There's nothing obvious in there about the depiction of helmet-wearing to illustrate articles about cycling more generally...

Re: "Decide for yourself"

Having read and re read, my own opinion is that, CTC is now (?) run by a bunch of wet Liberals.

Re:

What the OP us saying (and I agree with) is that a "you choose" policy is nonsensical. It isn't a case of choice - either the helmet protects and one wears one accordingly or it/one doesn't. False dichotomy. It's possible helmet use doesn't protect for everyday typical cycling including t...

Re: M1 crash - can someone explain

Is twice the limit completely intoxicated? I don't know but would have thought if the limit is where it's deemed 'safe' to drive, then twice that might not be all that drunk, too drunk to drive safely but not completely incapacitated so much that you park on the motorway for 10 minutes. How driving...

Re: M1 crash - can someone explain

Being drunk on a Motorway in charge of a HGV or in a mobile is disgusting. They both deserve locking up! End of....,,.

Re: Ant McPartlin arrested over drink-driving collision

Charity as in time spent doing stuff for the charity was what I was talking about. It's the physical activity for charities that get recognised for honours among the prominent entertainment types. What would a Celeb do that is any use to a charity? The only thing they are capable of doing is appear...

Re: Ant McPartlin arrested over drink-driving collision

Addiction is an illness. You can't attribute idiot or buffoon status to someone affected deeply by addiction IMHO. Rational thought isn't possible in the same way a sober individual capable of. Indeed. I thought society had moved on generally in its understanding, but there may be individuals who h...

Re: Gas cooking on a Trangia - views?

I have a Trangia 25-6 and have run it on butane/propane gas with Trangia's OE gas burner since day one. It has been brilliant. Far better than using meths or such similar taking an age to boil water and cook food. Of course it works! it is like buying a petrol fuelled car and running it on Calor Ga...
