Helmet cameras

Hello all,I'm considering getting myself a helmet cam, and having had a look through the older posts on here, I can see that they've been discussed before, but I'm sure the market for them will have…Continue

Bike shopping

As my bike's been nicked, I'm now sadly in the market to buy another one. I'm looking at Ebay, gumtree, and bikesoup, (as well as looking at the bike foundry) but wondered if there are other sites…Continue

"I'm afraid I very much doubt that any part of the A38 route will be ready by next spring, even if they were to actually start work tomorrow. It took a month of canal closure just to put in some wider steps at University station, a project so…"

"In keeping with that old advice, when I run along the canals (in most weeks I log more runs along them more than I've made cycle trips along them in the last year) I am inclined to let those on bikes pass me on the canal side. Conversely, I…"

Andrew George replied to Robert's discussion University Station Cycle Parking
"I can only suppose, as Kim does, that a lot of overflow parking is done on the campus. All of the nearest parking on campus is, however, under the open skies, which is far from ideal, particularly in the winter."

Andrew George replied to Andrew's discussion Survey on canal towpath usage from CRT
"I filled it in and pointed out that difficulties passing people going the other way, or overtaking/being overtaken, are absolutely inevitable if the paths are only a metre wide at places, and usually only 1.5 metres along most of their length. To…"

Andrew George replied to Pete Matthews's discussion Bristol Road going from Selly Oak towards Bournville improvements
"The second link that Rich22222 posted shows a pedestrian crossing with no fewer than six sets of traffic lights pointing at traffic on that side of the road. Reassuring to know that the Council thinks that drivers who need six red lights to avoid…"

Andrew George replied to UoB Smartmover's discussion Improvement of canal access at University station and related disruption
