    You're overshooting the target a wee bit here.

    If you're making someone uncomfortable with your attention, then yes, that is overstepping your boundaries and morally more than questionable. But simply enjoying seeing another fit human is not the same thing.

    We're sexual beings, there is nothing wrong with that, and a fit human body is pleasant to look at for a variety of obvious reasons. Don't be a prude.

    Doesn't matter whether you have a speedometer or not, the law doesn't except ignorance as an excuse.

  • My brother’s not a doper, says Jonathan Tiernan-Locke’s twin sister1 year 5 weeks agoI love these comments, there

    I love these comments, there are more conspiracy theories here than at a Release-the-Area51-Aliens convention.

    The facts are:
    1) he did really well at Endura
    2) came to Sky and started doing not so well (for various reasons)
    3) his bio-passport releaved anomalies
    4) his value were extensively tested by independent authorities over several months
    5) he did not provide a reasonable explanation for the anomalies
    6) the logical conclusion is that he is very likely to have doped
    7) he's banned and had his contract terminated
    8) he hasn't realeased the data to prove his innocence (as is his right)

    It's sad but, unless he reveals his data and an independent doctor can explain the anomalies, then he's a doper and no conspiracy theory is going to change that. JTL hasn't been banned without evidence, he's able to publish his values on the Internet if he wants. Though I doubt that'll happen; Lance did that to show his innocence and his values got picked apart pretty quickly.

    As a racer (of no particular talent), I know of quite a few amateur racers who are likely dopers, as well as a few who are definitely ex-dopers at least. This starts at amateur Cat 3 level, though who's to say people aren't taking drugs simply so they can go Strava KOM hunting? Some people are simply cheats and I believe doping is still more common than people like to think.

    I'm sorry for JTL but I think he doped and was punished accordingly. Hopefully he'll learn from this if he returns to racing.

    I've hit my head a few times now falling off and am glad I've been wearing a helmet. Certainly will be having my children wear one. I deal with people post-head injury and even a small reduction in risk is worth squiffy hair for.

    I'm sure that if you pro-skills style-gods crash at all you fall into a perfect tuck and spring back to your feet undaunted. We are not all like that.

    Given the results today - does anyone know if there is still a limit on winning two bikes per year (I know it used to be a rule), because it looks like polishdave has a good one going here after winning the Giro. Just curious.

    I don't see much wrong with "enjoying the view", it's when it gets into perving / harrassing territory where I would draw the line.

    Nobody's saying that. It will hurt significantly less than being hit by a car at the same speed though. F=MA.

  • Southwark plans crackdown on 20+mph cyclists1 year 5 weeks agoAround here the council,

    Around here the council, which is on the verge of introducing a whole load of new 20mph local limits, has an SLA with Police Scotland to provide adequate plod to enforce those limits. Seems to me the Met is saying in a round about way that they won't enforce it unless someone pays for it. Luckily our council isn't quite like Southwark in that they're not barmy enough to think the new limits can practicably be enforced on cyclists. They're just barmy in other ways.

    "In use, the Strada Slim is almost identical to the previous version."

    I confirm that the previous version is already excellent. The bulk of the old sensor is the only thing really worth complaining about, so this improvement is a smart step forward.

    Having said that, I think the Tour is poorer for the lack of Froome & Contador. I'm not a fan of either, but would have loved to see them battle on the hills

    The respective woes of Froome and Porte have give Team Sky the opportunity to actually go for it which is quite refreshing! It was great to have Kiri in the break today. And no, it's not a man crush. Well, not much of one. Day Dreaming
