nick bradley replied to Ian's discussion Commuter Route
"I'll pitch in my experiences as a wannabe cycling courier disguised as a Deliveroo rider. I pretty much always stay well away from any of the islands that we like to call circuses. They encourage aggressive driving and while I like to save any…"

nick bradley replied to LS's discussion Changes to Birmingham Cycle Revolution Main Routes
"As Gareth said. I would love the Hagley Road corridor to be first on the list, but it is far better to have some showcase high quality routes you would be happy for your kids to cycle on than loads of half baked schemes. Hopefully the residents of…"

nick bradley replied to Andrew W's discussion Birmingham to host closed roads sportive
"If I was a betting man, which I am, I'd say KOM is almost certainly St Kenelms Pass coming from The French Hen and then taking a right to Walton Hill. Not too strenuous...."

nick bradley replied to John Pitcock's discussion Cycle parking at shops
"It's always worth asking the shop manager about bike parking. My shop has in store bike parking on top of my bike (if I'm asked). Last week I noticed a women walking around Waitrose in Harborne with her rather beautiful Pinarello and they…"

nick bradley replied to Katy's discussion Overnight storage?
"I manage a shop in the city centre. It closes at 9 and opens at 9 but if you wanted to leave it there over night it's not a problem. I am close to new street station"

nick bradley replied to Doug's discussion NO CYCLE ACCESS TO OR FROM SHELDON
"Hi. I'm from southwest Birmingham and don't know this area. I have a friend in sheldon who has recently bought a bike and I said I'd go out for a short ride. Any recommendation for short loops, between 10 and 20 miles around here with…"

nick bradley replied to laura mcmullan's discussion BBC Midlands Today
"I'd put good money on the fact that at least 2/3rds of drivers average over 40mph through the tunnels when there isn't a traffic jam. I go through at 30mph and can almost feel the tension behind me."

nick bradley replied to laura mcmullan's discussion BBC Midlands Today
"It is a decent point about hills. When I cycle in London I'm always shocked how completely flat it is. I commute from halesowen so have mucklow hill in my way, which I can see could be annoying. However, for anyone living Quinton/ Bearwood/…"

nick bradley replied to laura mcmullan's discussion BBC Midlands Today
"When I first saw this thread I was quite angry at the sceptical cyclists. All I could see was a reporter from Midlands Today trying to promote cycling, which could only be a good thing. After last night it appears the sceptical cyclists are a bit…"

nick bradley replied to David Jones's discussion Paris-Roubaix
"The bookies in cannon street sometimes has it on, or at least it does if I'm working, which I am. Though I am aware watching it in a bookies isn't as fun as in a cafe. If you are really stuck you may not know that radio 5 live aports extra…"

Birmingham Cycle Revolution

"£495 is easily achievable if you are as inept as me at cleaning and maintaining a bike. 2 main services, batteries, new bike every 4 or 5 years etc."

nick bradley replied to Savlona's discussion Cyclist down on Colmore Road
"I hope I have become completely aware of cyclists since I started regular cycling 4 years ago. I do appear to spot them from hundreds of meters away when driving and don't quite understand the SMIDSY defence. Hopefully some of my friends are…"

nick bradley replied to Darren Cash's discussion Bike V Car
"I think the evening mail had an article saying average traffic speed on the Hagley Road was 13mph, throw in a few unexpected lorries parked up on the side of the road and it soon gets way below this. I can't believe semi fit people would rather…"

nick bradley replied to John K's discussion The Sky is Falling- anyone riding tomorrow?
"I've been on the train since I forgot not to cycle on ice clipped into my bike up a steep hill on Monday. Getting a bit aggrieved paying £6.50 to stand on a train but I think I'm not skilled enough to cycle on ice. I also don't…"

Kim replied to nick bradley's discussion Drains
"Wouldn't hurt to report it on fillthathole.org.uk I'd be surprised if anything got done about it, though.  That looks like a fairly standard drain design, and there are a squillion serious potholes out there in need of…"

nick bradley replied to nick bradley's discussion Drains
"Got my front wheel caught in this cheeky little drain on the Hagley Road even though i have managed to cycle past it without realising it was there hundreds of times. It nearly took me down but with luck I stayed up and it just caused a snakebite…"
