I cant help but think that this "Aeroshell" is little more than an afterthought by the brand that is being marketed to us mortals as some kind of specially engineered solution.
Or it's a genius way of saying 'buy this helmet as it's a four season, fully vented helmet or aero helmet all rolled into one'.
I have a Lazer genesis and it's brilliant. Fits really well, and I love the fact I can pop the cover off, roll it up and shuff it into my jersey pocket - great if I start a ride early morning when it's often pretty chilly but then warms up by 10am.
Because I liked it so much, I then bough a Lazer Oasiz MTB helmet for when I want to get all rad.

This. Why do people have no common sense?
The pressure washers that the pro teams use are usually smaller units that don't kick out quite as much power too.
I generally find a hose on a mains pressure tap more than adequate....though I can't carry that around in a car, granted

I'm at a loss with this one, could you provide a bit more information as to what the anti-cycling measures the Royal Parks want to put in place?
What are the 'multiple raised platforms'? Are there any plans or pictures of them?

No, it is proposed as the route of CS11, and it is proposed to misuse over £1m of public money set aside for cycling for the deliberate purpose of stopping sports cyclists training there.
We are right to complain about speeding motorists (although actually it is not a serious problem in Regent's Park, to the extent that it occurs, can be solved more effectively by gate closures, some Seimens SafeZone ANPR cameras measuring average speeds, and generally enforcing the law). There is no double standard, because cyclists aren't speeding in the park. The speed limit is and will remain 30mph limit on what is an almost pan-flat loop with traffic lights, junctions and corners.

SO I clicked on this thinking they were going to ban cycling but in fact it is speed restriction measures. Well I agree with them for cars and normal roads, why not cycling ?
We can not moan at motorists speeding then say OK for us.
On the petition link it says at no time cycling will be banned does it ?

It's what I've been using since last August. If the space between the poppers is different, its close enough not to matter.

What about Assos rS.sturmPrinz EVO in lolly red? Bloody expensive but what a great investment (I got it for £200 from bike-discount in Germany, retails at £349)! Waterproof, very in-your-face hi-viz and no boil in the bag effect (unlike my Rapha race cape).
The fabric is the most important point to consider when you buy a jacket. Our advice is not to skimp if you want a decent high-quality jacket that is going to provide years of outstanding service. You really do get what you pay for.

You are bang on. Little tale. When I was younger we would travel over to Dumfries and Galloway area for hols (from Newcastle). Travelling along the A69 (notorious for getting stuck behind lorrys, tractors etc) you would get people over taking extremely dangerously just to get ahead. My grandad would always say "we'll see him at the next roundabout" and sure enough, every time, that dickhead would be 2 or 3 cars in front. They gained no time, and put themselves and their passengers at huge risk.
I find that when I commute to work on the bike. I will get cars screaming past me, but when I get to the next set of lights there they are, sat in a queue of cars and I filter past.
