GDPR - are you ready?

Postby gaz » 24 May 2018, 6:03pm

Please don't forget that from tomorrow the General Double Pannier Regulations come in to force across the EU.

Is your bike ready?

I saw a Double Pannierist whizzing along the B3662 heading north this morning.
Bare chested, no helmet, and riding "no hands".

Are they all like that?
Is this the new rules?

There are many different ways that a pair or pairs of panniers can be used that comply with GDPR.

It is important to fulfill your obligations under the GDPR.

Where it is foreseeable that a manner of cycling will not be compliant with the GDPR the Pannier Police can issue warnings to a cyclist prior to them setting off.

Ultimately the Pannier Police may order the revocation of a rider's Pannier Proficiency Certificate (which is used to indicate that their cycling takes place in accordance with the GDPR).

There really ought to be a FAQs page on the Cycling UK website dealing with this important issue.

I saw one Going Down a Private Road.
I thought her rather bold but applauded the sentiment.

Sorry, but you are missing the central point of the legislation:

You have to obtain the bicycle's consent before attaching any pannier, bag, suitcase, or any other apparatus designed for the portage of stuff*.

* The definition of 'stuff' is highly technical but in essence means 'things'.

Are 'stuff' and 'things' also described as 'artefacts' pertaining to bicycling transportation,and does it apply to tricycles and unicycles.

It's worse than that, apparently.

The loads in the two panniers will have to be evenly balanced. No deviation from an exact balance is permitted. Indeed, I can foresee all sorts of problems with this. For one thing, we shall have to take a luggage scale along on every shopping trip. And I can foresee spending ages having to pack and re-pack - and probably end up opening a bag of rice or similar and tipping some rice into the other pannier.

And then there is the problem: where do I stow the luggage scale itself?

Where will it end?

easily solved. you will just have to hang your pannniers upside down.

I believe this legislation was triggered by rumours of potential Anglo -Saxon amalgamations

such as this Carra-lieb set up (for illustration only ,not used on public highway).General de Gaulle

obviously had this in mind all those years ago .He knew it couldn't last, Il a dit 'Non'!

There is a Daniel Rebour illustration of that particular moment in histoire somewhere,with Le General

holding aloft a typically chic and slim 'sacoche du baguette pour bicyclette francais' to illustrate his

concerns.

I somehow sensed then it would never last, quel domage.
