"Any news on what Birmingham City Council and Dudley Met Council feel about the event as we have road closures too. Interesting about the Scam aspect. I think it's impossible to police all these road closures without the police or lots of…"

"For anyone who wants more info on our bike fitting service: We currently offer a Standard Bike Fit at £79. This is based on Trek’s Precision Fit bike fitting system.   The fit takes around an hour and a half. Slots are typically…"

"On your Bike on Bradford street. Highly recommended. Moved my cleats back, lowered saddle slightly and replaced the stem with a shorter one."

Simon replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"I would suggest that that title is somewhat misleading - the routes were meant to be calmed and controlled enough for people to be able to use without first doing a L3.  They failed in creating routes like this.  This is not the fault of…"

LS replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"Very strange. It was blank until I signed in then it appeared. This is what you said... But, in my book, VC isn't meant to create loads of new cyclists.  It's the best way to stay safe when there are no alternative credible…"

Robert replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"Yes, you could call riding down a cul-de-sac with one motor vehicle every twenty minutes vehicular cycling, and indeed there is lots of that in the Netherlands, but that's not really what is normally meant by the term.   The BBB…"

"Forum seems to have gone strange......the text from my previous post has dispersed, yet it's visible in the bit at the side...scratches head. Anyway, what I think I said was: It's not my contention that VC gets more people onto bikes,…"

Kim replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"TBH, I think the problem is with the infrastructure rather than the choice of vehicles.  I've had as many nasty big roundabout incidents when driving as I have when cycling (which is probably skewed by avoiding big roundabouts less when in…"

Robert replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"Well I will continue to condemn it. I've not had a single life-threatening incident riding on a segregated cycleway, but I have had plenty practising VC, such as the motorist who tail-gated me as I was approaching a right turn, and who only…"

Simon replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"I dont think that we should condemn a type of cycling based on one or two bad experiences otherwise im sure we could find a few horrendous incidents that have happened on segregated cycleways and condemn them.  Rather its a case that vehicular…"

Robert replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"Two of my bad right turn experiences have been on the roundabouts of the Selly Oak new road.   In one case I was heading downhill from the hospital at very close to the speed limit, and had switched to Lane 2 for the right…"
