    Yeah. Less mistakes would be pretty cool... Don't forget to log out whenever you update the scores... It can be pretty frustrating to wait for hours while the game is updating only to find out you forgot to logout... Appreciate the owning up to that, Gkam, I really do!

    Logout....Nothing should have been wrong for not logging out Thinking I'm not sure I ever said that anywhere.....

    But the mistakes I did make, most of them I put on the forum Day Dreaming

    Excuse my stupidness, but as explained to me, forum is not linked to fantasy, separate entity. So when u make mistakes and deadline changes, how do non forum reading fantasy players know ?

    Got Cataldo in the break. No changes. Need Rolland to break his chain and Hesjedal to produce another stage 16, but it's more likely to be the other way around.

    Duarte to finally win today! I hope!

    Chalapud and some others chasing, maybe Wellens as I saw a Lotto shirt.

    Monsalve finally trying for some mountain points. Bit late now!! Why didn't you do it when you were in my team.

    Noone in the break for me, but looking for a decent finish on the Zoncolon.

    4 transfers for tomorrow too. The best for me would be poor performances from Duarte and Uran, and good results for Wilco, Ryder and Pierre. Also if Dupont could do something.

    I've never thought to draft cars as they're generally not boxy enough to make too much difference.

    My favourite was drafting Dudman cement mixers when I worked in Shoreham and lived in Brighton. I could more or less get underneath them and get a free ride most of the way home.

    But let's say we each get one smack at the other's head with a cricket bat. I'll have my helmet on, thanks.

    Yes, but it's an awful lot subtler than that though isn't it? If wearing a helmet increases the chances of you getting hit in the first place, and there are studies that suggest that, then it's not as straight forward as saying "I want a helmet on if I bump my head"

    For me the most compelling argument is that the countries with the lowest levels of helmet use also see the lowest levels of cyclist head injuries. That's probably largely down to the fact they have proper infrastructure, so that's what we need to concentrate on instead of endless arguements about polystyrene hats.

    Entirely correct. The only time I didn't use a bike in Cambridge was when I was a student. As a member of the town I have rarely walked. There is a big difference between a half-mile journey and even one and a half. The only students who definitely use their bikes are the ones that hare down Huntingdon road every morning!

    Yeah, it's going to be college and subject dependent. A lot of Girton students probably have bikes. Kings' students studying on the New Museums site 100m away probably don't, or at least don't use them very much.

  • 96mph in a 30 limit & 149mph on a motorway: figures reveal insane speeding on roads of England & Wales1 year 4 weeks agoHeadlines like '96 in a 30'

    Headlines like '96 in a 30' may get lots of attention but let's be honest about this - one dickhead is scary but 1,000 drivers doing 40 in a 30 every single day is IMHO much more of an issue.

    It's not the extremes it's the chronic problem. Speeding and inappropriate behaviour, particularly in built-up areas where pedestrians and cyclists are more common creates much greater risk.

    Why is it that so many people think that speed limits need not be adhered to because "I'm a good driver", "it's not much faster" or "brakes are much better than 40 years ago"? All are irrelevant.

    But nothing will change until more people realise that cars and lorries should not dominate our towns, to the detriment of everyone else. Most streets were not designed to accomodate strings of cars nose-to-tail, but until more people get out of their cars and walk, cycle or take the bus then the spineless politicians, councillors and planning departments will cater for the majority.
