    Title seems a bit wrong, when i read the headline i thought it was people on bikes who had caused the problem.

    Its a very dangerous and possibly fatal incident which needs to be sorted asap.

    Great programme.
    Really good selection of interviews and Amaechi is a bit of God round these parts (ie. our house)
    I was dragging my fat arse around the track as Chris Hoy was being interviewed but thankfully any footage of me ended up on the cutting room floor.
    I wish they did little tours of underneath the boards. Looks great under there.

  • Graeme Obree launches petition urging Glasgow 2014 to shun Ugandan MPs who backed anti-gay law1 year 7 weeks agoWhatever their reasoning

    Whatever their reasoning behind these laws its backed massively by the population of Uganda as recently demonstrated on both Sky news and the BBC reports.

    Personally i think its wrong whats happened in Uganda but by bringing into the spotlight at what should be a time of celebration ie the Commonwealth Games, is not my idea of the way to go about it.

    By all means set up petitions and demonstrations but dont let it spoil what is a great spectacle.

    The pump incorporating the push fit connector is clever. It's been lifted directly from plumbing and hydraulic engineering that design has, fingers crossed they are not sued for patent infringement by Hepworth who manufacture flexible hoses for car manufacturers.

    It's just a collet, I doubt they have any patent on them.

  • Just in: Kinesis Tripster ATR1 year 7 weeks agoSurprised by the caliper

    Surprised by the caliper position, seeing as Boardman can fit the rear one inside the triangle without clearance issues, as do Kona on the Rove Ti.

    Does it affect particular sizes worse?

  • Just in: Kinesis Tripster ATR1 year 7 weeks agoIf you're worried about cable

    If you're worried about cable ties slicing you up, buy and use a cable tie installation tool. Eliminates the problem as it tightens and cuts in one operation, and the end pulls back into the "fastener" part when installed.

    My father died of a heart attack. Am I offended every time Jimmy Carr/Frankie Boyle/whoever makes a comment about someone dying from a heart attack? No. Should I be? No.

    Stop being so terminally offended.


    Death from natural causes or killed whilst cycling by a nobber-driver.

I care about its design, its development, the developers and their work, and the experience for all of us. Everything I point out may not be especially relevant, but it comes out of a true desire to make this the best, most complete Fantasy Cycling experience out there. Can you see that? I am totally absorbed and dedicated to this game, as if I was part of this. Can you see that? As for Gkam, he's got a big heart, and he's a great part of this team, but he's not on my radar screen right now. You are. Are we ok?

    More hugs. And Gkam can have one, too.

    Really .....do yourself and us a favour stop with the youtube links and a word of advice , you asking ppl if they want a hug sounds patronising.

    You started off this year really well and now you are reverting back to how you were a yr ago , your alias and it's use in trying to support ur own posts hasn't helped and neither does ur sig about it .....

    I'm being polite for the games you have run but use your head and listen to what people who run the game tell you otherwise you will have another year of ppl ranting at you

    I have. I particularly enjoyed the "work harder ********" abuse from the passenger of a hot hatch that overtook me on my way home yesterday. That was a predictable result of this piece of BBC public disservice broadcasting.

    I think the portrayal of injured cyclists as vegetables crossed the line, too.


    Yep. That's what I told them too.

  • Opposition follows New Forest sportive to new location as organiser tries to reassure locals1 year 7 weeks agoI'm looking forward to doing

    I'm looking forward to doing this event with my brother. We have booked accommodation in the forest and will no-doubt be eating and drinking at local pubs for two nights.

    I could have taken my business elsewhere and ridden another sportive, but why would I want to let the small-minded idiots win?

    It's worth mentioning that this Sunday is a rugby game at Twickenham, which will cause traffic chaos near my house. I won't be out there throwing tacks on the road though. I know that these visitors are good for the local businesses that I rely on the rest of the week.

    Cars are registered and they still get stolen.
    Is it really a tool against bike theft? I can't see how.
    Cars also have gps trackers in and still get stolen as well.

  • Eurosport iTunes app1 year 7 weeks agoI use the app. Is well worth

    I use the app. Is well worth it. Quality streaming. And videos afterwards. You will need to make the call and pay the fee for iPad or iPhone. But then you can hook up to Apple TV and watch on a bigger screen. Eurosport have been getting better and now include races that are not normally seen live. There is a 12 month deal that I think you can view on desktop and a device. Can't remember all the details. Just means if out you can jump onto a hotspot. Think you can also watch as live from desk top as well.

    Some nice comment on the as easy as riding a bike blog.

    On the A316 which he had come from, which just turns into a motorway, and where cycling is completely legal, conditions are identical except there's no hard shoulder to provide a bit of respite from the traffic.

    "Given that the objective conditions on the M3 are superior to the A316, and that the two are essentially the same road, I can see where [the cyclist is] coming from."
