    yeah, i can just imagine the silence on this forum if we were to do that. Thinking

    we're not 'continually moving the goalposts' anyway, we're just trying to make the early classics – which has been a learning experience – as interesting a comp as possible. one race got cancelled, so we put another one in. and one we couldn't get information for, so we swapped it out. There's no prizes for this one. It's not like anyone's being done out of a bike.

    i'm aware that people are paying money to play, which is why we're trying to make the experience as good as we can. we won't always do everything right and you can't please everyone anyway. but hey, at least you can talk to us, eh?

    Dave, not that it makes any difference, but i'm really happy we have more races. It is time consuming but as you said there are no prizes so it means you can mess about with teams and pick people who might do well instead of going for the usual suspects. Keep it up Smile

    Don't get why the Belisol Women's team get lovely S5's, and Greipel and his ilk are stuck on these pseudo aero, generic ugly carbon bicycle shaped objects.

    Ridley makes me ill.

    you are joking right? The only pro-peloton bikes uglier than the S5 are Lampre's Meridas.

  • Starting a Cycle Club - Woking1 year 6 weeks agoGood on you for doing this.

    Good on you for doing this. I'm part of a club that was formed a few years ago out of a group of lads that just liked riding bikes. We've got BC affiliation, but it's a very small minority of us who race.

    I found them because I googled around for a small club without political agendas, annual general meetings and the like. The unique selling point of ours is that we ride out earlier (8am) than others, so we tend to attract people who have kids etc and can't simply block out most of the daylight hours every Sunday for riding.

    Get yourself some jerseys, and encourage everyone to behave and ride responsibly while wearing them. Try and get your LBS to subsidise them with their name on them, and get a couple of posters put up in the shop.

    Your website is decent, and you sound like a friendly lot (I read the bit about doing away with the excuses for not doing sportives). Maybe get some pictures up which show that you are in fact human and not all 9-stone racing snakes with intimidating calf muscles and aero-shaped heads.

    Get a facebook page, link up with all the members, post some stuff and get a few likes. Link to a club page on Strava and show people where you've been. The members will come, I'm sure.

    Good luck.

  • Trial opens of nine cyclists arrested at Critical Mass on night of Olympic opening ceremony1 year 6 weeks agoSimon, cheers mate, just read

    Simon, cheers mate, just read through it and, as i said before, i accept i was wrong on this case. However, my initial point that you cant organise a demonstration without informing the Police was correct (sect 11 poa 1986) so in relation to an earlier correspondent "i did know the law" and was correct. Apology accepted from you in advance Wink

    I was not aware of the case involving cm otherwise i would not have added the comment. Mind you the comment from paulbrock shows how comments can be twisted to suit and perhaps he should also consider reading up on the law regarding demonstrations before he tries to lecture.

    Not Impressed Thinking , not impressed by the original post. I think it's great that you are flexible and looking after all followers, I am not saying you just ignore these self centered individuals, after all if they do not want to partake in a particular event, they do have the option of missing it out. You should be congratulated for finding the time and effort to provide for all.

    Good on you for putting it together - I'm no blazer-wearing rules afficionado, but if you call yourselves a Cycling Club would new members expect to be able to join races and events as affiliated club members?
    I'm part of a club and also an informal ride-out group that has no name or rules; each meets different needs.

    You seem be be good at inferring inaccurate opinion and reaching baseless conclusions from what you think you've read. Smile If you re-read the article it says the scarf is 'Woven' in Scotland. This infers that the tweed fabric is produced in Scotland, but the scarf may well be finished off (e.g. that button stitched on, etc.) elsewhere. Oh, and 'scotland' is spelled with a capital 'S'.

    Take tyre off, use ruler to measure inner width of the rim? I reckon 23mm or less would be fine for 28 mm tyres.
