- Are police fining 'speeding' cyclists in Richmond Park exceeding their authority?1 year 4 weeks agoAs others commented a bicycle
As others commented a bicycle is not legally required to be fitted with a speedometer for use on public highway? Considering my bike computer has indicated 88mph whilst pushing my bike across our bike shop's floor whilst leaving the building I suspect its not at all accurate. How can the police prosecute me for speeding when I have either: no speedo, or one that is wildly inaccurate...

If Plod stops you and asks "do you know how fast you were going?" You could legitimately say "No. My bicycle does not have a speedometer, nor is one required, so I have no way of knowing."
I think that could be the basis for a defence.
Its no more a defence than not having a breathalyser in your car is a defence for drink driving.
- Birmingham "vigilante" cyclist tells his story1 year 4 weeks agoI have to say, from talking
I have to say, from talking to many other riders (online and in person) a large number in many districts do not feel the Police are either at all helpful after an incident, or indeed care, or that they've been blamed for inciting an incident.
I wonder if this flash ride was filmed by anyone. In this day and age you need to film these things to make the facts clear.

- VIDEO: Cyclists hurt on 'lethal' Edinburgh tram tracks1 year 4 weeks agoFor Pete's sake, did I say I
For Pete's sake, did I say I like the road design there? I don't think so. But still, there will never be such thing as perfect infrastructure. That said, learning basic maneuvers like hopping the front wheel over obstacles (or at least learning to cross tram lines at a less acute angle like the other cyclist in the film did) is simply necessary if we want to ride safely. Good road design should naturally help us (and like I said, we should do our best and demand building proper infrastructure from the authorities), but will never be a substitute for proper riding skills.
@DrJDog - did I say "bunny hopping"? No, I said "hopping at least with the front wheel", which is not difficult even with a heavy bike (not to mention a light bike like the one we see here).

- Giro Air Attack helmet1 year 4 weeks ago@ Colin Peyresourde,
@ Colin Peyresourde,
yes it's silly argument on here, and you have rightly pointed a fact neglected by the other contributers that at different speeds, aerodynamic efficiencies have a different effect. This is why the manufacturer only states 17 secs are saved when travelling for one hour at 25mph. It will be a different amount of time saved going at a different speed, not least because speed, time and distance are inextricably linked! (I think this is the basic point @ Mr. Turning was making)
However your point 1 is not valid, because the manufacturer is talking about going a certain speed for a given period of time which is necessarily linked to distance!
