"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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.

"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…"
"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…"
"Fascinating. You'd have to be a very fit cyclist indeed to be able to do 20mph under all circumstances.
I agree that speed differential is what makes vehicular cycling difficult (and Rachel Aldred's near miss research seems to…"
"Just to show, I'm not completely foolhardy, I have chickened out on cycling on the roads in the past myself.
Even though it's a fairly new town, cycling on the roads in Milton Keynes is horrendous. It's the only place I've felt…"
