Kim commented on Matt Hinkley's event 'The Shenstone Audaxes'
"Agreed about the trains. It's ECE-able, but the ride across Birmingham is unpleasant, even on a Sunday. Last time I entered one I DNSed due to injury but went and rode the route when the trains were running later in the week. Academic for me…"

Simon commented on Matt Hinkley's event 'The Shenstone Audaxes'
"As always, the problem with these great rides is getting to the start as the trains don't start running on time, I hate using my bike as an excuse to use the car, and I'm too knackered to ride there at the mo, but will try and make it and…"

Robert replied to Matt Hinkley's discussion Kingstanding Circle
"Don't forget that on a proper Dutch roundabout you travel in the shortest direction to your destination, be that clockwise or anti-clockwise, so it can be quicker than a the British arrangement.   And it's certainly a lot safer;…"

Simon replied to Matt Hinkley's discussion Kingstanding Circle
"Looking at the aerial view there is an obvious 'outer-circle' for three quarters of the circumference that might make a nice alternative for cyclists.  But it'll never happen as it would require around nine pelicans, which given…"

Doug replied to Matt Hinkley's discussion Kingstanding Circle
"On face value the aerial photo suggests a design that attributes 100 % of road space and 100 % of priority to vehicles. It  looks like there is lots of space.  In my experience  larger roundabouts …"

Richard D replied to Matt Hinkley's discussion Kingstanding Circle
"My solution to tackling Kinstanding Circle by bike is to avoid it altogether. Too many chances to be taken out by the ignorant and unwary. Paint some extra lines on the pavement and I'll STILL avoid it like the plague. Because I don't see…"

"The local councillors there are anti-cycling unless it's on tow paths or in parks. The money would be better spent where it's appreciated."

"Exactly, yet these have been built in the UK as "cycling infrastructure", because they are "Dutch".   The Dutch are more than happy to sell the design to us, used appropriately or inappropriately.   Not…"
