Your Average Joe replied to Andrew W's discussion Birmingham to host closed roads sportive
"I'm well disappointed. Even with all the complaining that was going on, I was not expecting this - Herefordshire replaced with Staffordshire! It may still be a 100 mile ride (if it goes ahead), but it's not going to be anywhere near as…"

"There's an interesting link on that follow-up post that Philip Whiteman added: Cyclist crashes as tacks sprinkled on Velothon Wales route - but others praise local support After having tacks sprinkled on the inaugural event..... "

"This ain't a nimby win, it's just a delayed kick off at the moment. If the cycling community wants to win friends and influence people, it's going to take compromise, with some members having to soften their stance. Cyclists can be…"

Your Average Joe replied to doug salmon's discussion Prosecution for killing cyclist
"I could put forward a few alternatives to your furry bodywork (A fight on the pavement. An old man looking to cross. A minor accident on the opposite carriageway etc etc), but I'll not bother. Having thought this over a little now (only a…"

Your Average Joe replied to John K's discussion Commuting Distance - anyone over 14 miles ?
"  30+ years ago, I use to cycle, daily, from Chelmsley Wood to Rubery, that was ~16 miles each way. After doing that for a few years, I moved out Rubery way, got a job over Elmdon, started to drive to work and got fat (which is why I do a lot…"

Your Average Joe replied to Robert's discussion Big Bike Ride on Saturday April 22nd
"  Now, that explains why there seemed to be a lot of cyclist by the council house on Saturday (22nd). Luckily enough, we were able to get out before the big crowds turned up. Couldn't have people photobombing of my stepson's…"

"A lot of people confuse the two. That BBC video highlights Change Blindness, which is far easier to understand and accept than Inattentional Blindness. You can find the most famous IB video here. I don't want to go over the case bit by bit…"

Your Average Joe replied to doug salmon's discussion Prosecution for killing cyclist
"I have seen that piece on the case and I don't think people are, in general, saying the decision of the jury was wrong. From what I've read (in your link and elsewhere), the issue seems to be, why was the case not passed to the CPS? On…"

Your Average Joe replied to doug salmon's discussion Prosecution for killing cyclist
"From personal experience, I know how screwed up our justice system can be. I've seen the guilty walk free myself. Not being in court, I can't really comment on this case. I just know, you can miss things, which I've actually done in…"

Your Average Joe replied to doug salmon's discussion Prosecution for killing cyclist
"It may seem hard to believe, but it is possible to miss things that are right in front of you. It's called, inattentional blindness. All sorts of people have fallen foul of this, including police officers. There are some great videos on…"

"75 miles, of tough hills, in 4-5 hrs? That seems a little optimistic to me. "

"I guess, if you don't like the grub at the stops provided, a pub lunch might be for you. Even with 15,000 riders passing by, I'm not sure enough will stop to make up for the £5k that pub owner said she'd lose though."

Your Average Joe replied to Andrew W's discussion Birmingham to host closed roads sportive
"I know that some Councillors have made threats regarding the Velothon in Wales and road closures. The difference between Wales and Birmingham, seems to be the willingness to listen. In Wales, they've listen to what people have to say and made…"

Your Average Joe replied to Robert's discussion Cyclist Hit by Lorry on the A38 Bristol Road Near the Ring Road
"I don't know what is with tipper truck drivers, but they do seem to be involved in a cyclist deaths. I find them a menace when driving and when cycling. My advice, give them as wide a berth as possible, whenever possible. "

Your Average Joe replied to Ian's discussion Bike Fit
