Re: Your Ride Today

The headwind across the fens was a bit fierce today as I rode from King's Lynn to just outside Ely, but some of the route was below the banks of the ten-mile drain, I think it was, so there was a chance to recover. It's great to be back slow touring again, after months of uncertainty over health stu...

Re: Bollocks to Brexit

A shockingly feeble interview of Boris Johnson on R4 just now! He just steamrollered every attempt at interruption with that empty but verbose, superficially calm and patient tone of voice that is so obviously the result of coaching, and was allowed to get away with it, repeatedly. I was shrieking a...

Yes, in British it just sounds like slang for masturbation.

I was going to say euphemism but it's pretty descriptive.

Re: In the news...

I heard that programme, and I thought I might have misheard that comment for a moment. It was reckless of her, but then the programme is called 'Heresy'. It's just a slightly lame vehicle for people to say outrageous things under the guise of comedy and pseudo-intellectual debate bestowed on them by...

Re: Raising the limit for speeds of electric bikes

I was just speculating that an ebike is not a moped.

Re: Raising the limit for speeds of electric bikes

Is there? I've seen little about it other than via 'another place'.
Perhaps you aren't so much in the general cycling community as some others then? I can assure you, it is a hot topic.

Raising the limit for speeds of electric bikes

So there is a heated debate going on in the cycling community about whether the speed limit for e-bikes should be raised. Much of the argument against this idea seems to me to be of the "people who don't know how to ride a bike will be able to bomb off at 20mph and it won't be safe" variety. Does th...
