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. "

"Who was this with? I've just ordered a new bike myself and I'm thinking of getting a bike fitting when it turns up."

Your Average Joe replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"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…"

Your Average Joe replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"I'm sure, the drop in cycling proficiency for school children played a part in that decline too. For me, taking the lane is about positioning, not so much the acceleration. I see people riding far too close to the kerb all the time, which has…"

"I'm a little surprised at people's view of Five ways Island. I frequently cycle round it, from all approaches, without any real issues. I take the lane and stay in it, in the same way I would if I was driving round it. It may annoy those…"

Your Average Joe replied to Simon's discussion A34 lights
"I agree with most of what Kim has said. Unlike cycling on normal roads, where you're constantly being passed by other motor vehicles, it is possible to cycle in a bus lane and not encounter a bus, either at all, or only occasionally. Having…"

"We've a completely different way of seeing things in this country, compare to those on the continent it seems. At the moment, BCC are on board with this cycling revolution, but I can see this changing, as political pressures change in…"

"I've looked at the route and I know Droitwich pretty well too. You're still focusing on householder Ian.  Tell me, how are the companies on Pointon Way in Droitwich going to get on? Will farmers have to take a day off from milking…"

Your Average Joe replied to LS's discussion BCC Consultations with a cycling element
"  I've not looked at the A34 proposals fully yet, but when this and the A38 plans were initially announced, I thought the A34 had greater potential than the A38. Given the responses I've read, from those who currently use the A34, I…"

Your Average Joe replied to Simon's discussion A34 lights
"The A38 isn't as attractive as some may think. There are far too many junctions, traffic lights and give way signs for me.  For those who are new to cycling, it might work for them. For those who currently cycle this road, they may find…"

Your Average Joe replied to Andrew W's discussion Birmingham to host closed roads sportive
"I'm sorry, but I'm leaning towards Phillip Whitehead's position on the problem these road closures will cause. The disruption cause by football traffic only slows people down, it doesn't stop them from travelling completely,…"
