Leon Lewis replied to John K's discussion Encouraging others to commute
"I'm hoping in a few weeks time I'll be back on my bike. I'm going to push a bit more at the College to support students and staff more - hopefully the weather won't get too bad so it will encourage some newbies. I've also…"

"James, you mention the route to Ludlow. Does your route include Clee Hill? That would be a good test, probably from Ludlow going East though."

Leon Lewis replied to Doug's discussion Cycling investment - the neysayers who knock this show backward thinking
"The Evening Mail and Birmingham Post are now poorly written newspapers with items that show little or no research. The Post usually regurgitates stories that have already been in the Mail during the week."

Leon Lewis replied to Martin Daly's discussion A few questions if i may
"I commute from Yardley Wood to Longbridge and I've given up using the Stratford Canal up to the Kings Norton junction - it is poorly surfaced, very muddy and I found using Warstock Road (even though it is the worst surfaced road in Brum IMO)…"

Leon Lewis replied to James Avery's discussion Pavement Cycling Now Legal?
"I'm not surprised so many cyclists use the pavement. If cyclists were defined clearly as road users then it would be a problem. Instead, cyclists are directed on and off pavements, told to dismount, told to ride on the road, told to stop for…"

Leon Lewis replied to John K's discussion Encouraging others to commute
"I've managed to persuade a similar number (possibly more) over the past 3 years, which is quite gratifying. The college I work at offer good facilities for storage, showers and lockers, so they are onto a winner. Some even ride through the…"

Leon Lewis replied to Rich22222's discussion Longbridge Light Festival - and Rea Valley route
"Just to note: As you come off the Rea Valley route on Tessall Lane. Turn left and then a right and cycle through the Austin Social Club car park - much quicker and quieter than turning towards the Bristol Rd (A38) to get to the college/Longbridge…"

Leon Lewis replied to Basil's discussion Today's Commute
"Windy again this morning especially the final bit as I turn onto the New Longbridge town Centre by the College - It will be full of Formula 1 cars looking for a cheap wind tunnel for testing soon."

Leon Lewis replied to Martin Brailsford's discussion Birmingham to Stratford via canal
"I walked up to the Bluebell from Yardley Wood and some bits were very rutted and others very muddy - sadly this stretch will not get any funding to improve the tow path.  At least there are still some good pubs on route - though the Bulls Head…"
