    I am still getting an error message and unable to complete any transfers. Its been ongoing all week and has affected transfers I tried to do in the Tour of Britain.

    Every time I pick the team its now saying we were unable to complete your transfers please choose again. Does anyone else get this or am I just jinxed. Its taking out alot of the enjoyment as I have been missing transfers and can't keep logging back in to make them.

    perhaps the 2,000 or so signatories should be invited to agree to waive their public road funding subsidy and agree to personally underwrite the repair and maintenance of Surrey's roads instead and then they can dictate who can and can not use them ? Otherwise they should be invited to "pipe down".

    Yes, purist is a little pointless for the worlds because of the unlimited transfers but you've got three totally different races grouped into one competition, picking a team across all three races would be too difficult.

    Hey guys, just spent a great day at a cycling event which used the roads of Surrey.
    Estimates are that 60,000 people turned out in Guildford alone, f*ck knows how many more along the 154Km route.
    So much for 2,200 people signing some poxy petition.

    Agree that the jail tariff is too lenient but the life tariff to carry is absolute.

    It emphasises that a figure emerging from reviews on footway cycling is that the greatest risk is that of colliding with another cyclist riding on the footway, and crashing on a footway is 4-8 times more likely than crashing on a carriageway.

  • Cambridge Crime Commissioner: Making motorists liable for crashes is ‘very silly’1 year 4 weeks agoI do not understand why

    I do not understand why people have a problem with this, given that it is law in other European Countries and was in the 90's when I lived in Germany. That is why they have shared spaces that work because the simple law is, pedestrians have right of way over cycles and cars and cycles have right of way over pedestrians etc.
    It then means that those in control of vehicles (I know this may sound absurd to some in the UK) take responsibility for the control of their mode of transport, unless it can be proven that the other party was at fault such as a pedestrian straying into a cycle lane.
    This also means that shared spaces can be used, with no major drama.

    Why is it that we have strict health and safety laws that entail people being trained to use machinery and have to ensure that whilst using it that those around do not come to harm from it in the vicinity, except when we get out on to the roads. If a Policeman is patrolling the streets with a firearm, he is trained on it and is in control of it, it his responsibility to ensure those around him are not injured by it while it is in his control, you do not expect everyone walking passed him to wear body armour and helmet. So why should those who drive cars be any different or for that matter cyclists.

  • ‘Deathtrap’ fears over new York contraflow bike lane1 year 4 weeks agoThere seems to be no mention

    There seems to be no mention of the extent to which cyclists illegally have been travelling in the contra-flow direction and I'm reminded of a comment from a former officer with York Council on his (polite) response to any complaints about provision of parking spaces. "We are only required by the law to provide roads for moving traffic so I suggest you find somewhere to park for yourself - we won't be providing one".

    Quite frankly the expectation that road surfaces which cost a lot to build and maintain, are provided for storing private property often for long periods (most private cars are idle for on average 95% of the time) is something which has crept in over the past 50 years, along with the need to waste paint and signs indicating where parking is not permitted. Let's return to the simplicity of the Highway Code signage of the 1930's put up signs showing where parking is permitted, and have the clear understanding that it is not permitted at all other places. This does not preclude stopping to load or unload a vehicle but abandoning it as an obstruction - no.

    Of course this would then really deliver the proper market economy for the provision of places to park a car or truck, and quite likely reduce the total pay-out on parking fines made by UK motorists, who might just begin to accept the cultural adjustment of paying to park their cars when these are not in use.

    So Mr Stannard might need to consider how he manages his transport resources - I suspect that disabled parking space is used by one vehicle throughout the day, and as for a delivery truck stopped for 45 minutes to make a delivery, those haulage operators must be well loaded profit-wise to be able to afford such long periods of their trucks standing still and not moving goods around.

    sometimes the money is for charity...but yeah, why pay to ride on a road that is free every other day of the year...maybe it's for the (sometimes...well stocked) food stops and marshalling provided by some well run sportives.

    We don't all ride in/for clubs - and dress as we please...so overall I'd say (tongue in check or not) a rather condescending attempt at lording it over leisure cyclists in general...
