Cycling and Education.

I don't mean cycling proficiency, rather ‘education’ in the broadest sense: ways to change attitudes to cycling, particularly among young people . How is it done? Share how cyclists work with schools, colleges, universities, community groups, home educators, prisons and other organisations to promot...

Road Pricing, Poll

Poll:
Are you in favour of motor vehicle owners being charged per mile driven rather than per motor vehicle owned (the road pricing plans)?

Mrs Tortoise wrote While I can see possibilities, I have enough difficulty watching the traffic to worry about fiddling with a camera as well; couldn't it also open the rider to claims of careless cycling? I linked to the image only because the subject of 'cameras' had come up on a cycling message b...

I like the rational evaluation of risk in this thread. I’d add to it by trying to define some of the terms in this thread then broadening the scope to see helmet use in context. We can think more clearly about the issues surrounding bike helmet use if we establish a more precise terminology. It seem...

Nice topic. I aim to reduce, reuse, recycle, in that order. Power down from the mains when PC/printer unused; the Belkin under-monitor surge master with push button switches for each piece of equipment makes this very do-able.
