    As if you couldn't possibly think that any other sports; futbol, T&F, football, baseball, etc doesn't have athletes on some type of ped. The limited thought process from guys like you is simply amazing. It's as if your entire life and world revolve around sports and athletes. That is so very, very sad...

    Aaaah, now I see the offending kerb. I was staring at the picture for ages before I spotted it.

    Question: what's behind the person taking the pic? It seems that one would have to cross a solid line to join the lane in such a way to come undone on the kerb and that would suggest to me that this is not a natural place to join or leave the lane (these would be marked with a broken line I think).

    Do you muppets get this upset about your piece of shit corrupted governments? Hardly. Ideological Statists...
    Instead you RANT and cry and whine about athletes! So fucking IGNORANT. So fucking STUPID.

  • Cyclists are… How others see us (according to Google)23 hours 44 min agoWhat's all this us and them

    What's all this us and them or others? We're all or at least have been cyclists. From a driver's perspective though what is to like? Unless of course in commuter traffic when of course more cyclists may mean slightly less cars. Otherwise they are by definition an extra hazard, liability and impediment to drivers and to deny that is to deny the very concept of road cycling. I can acknowledge that even as a cyclist too.

  • Three riders crash in five minutes on Brighton's latest bike lane23 hours 46 min agoIf you look beyond where the

    If you look beyond where the accidents happened, the lane jinks out into the road specially so that it can be in the door zone of the parking lane that starts there. In NL or New York it would be the other way round so the parked cars protect the cycle lane from traffic. This puts the lane into jeopardy from both sides, as well as exposing cyclists to danger from cars leaving or joining the parking lane.

    Probably Test-C then. Very valid for ED. Of course the running (albeit) false narrative by the muppets is that he is cheating. This is understandable from minds that have been conditioned and are limited in their capabilities of logical, rational thought. Surprise

    Rather than utilizing the neo-cortex, they use the limbic region and emotional, psychological thoughts. What can one expect from a muppet? after all, Fraggle Rock doesn't promote thinking...it's only about FEELING...there, there Fozzie, mommy will make all better for you!

    I would LOVE to be on Anabolics NFE. Insurance issues and an unwilling doc at the moment. But I have a line on another doc who understands that at my age, (49) physical issues of fatigue, ED, and low energy levels are triggered by much lower levels of natural Testosterone in the body.

    So, I hope to have some Test-C soon. I could buy it on the black market from Turkey or India, but it's very expensive and there is a possibility of it being seized by customs.

    WTF, how can you being driving along paying attention to what you are doing and not see a cyclist directly in front of you. Then again where is the evidence that the driver wasn't searching in their glovebox, picking up a CD from the passenger footwell, fiddling with the radio etc etc etc.

  • Mio Cyclo 505HC UK1 day 12 min agoThe 505 HC UK includes a

    The 505 HC UK includes a heart rate monitor and cadence sensor - the cheapest you'll get this model is £280 from box.co.uk. I had one for some cycle touring through the summer - worked pretty well by and large. The latest firmware updates improve functionality a lot - adding swipe screens for instance.

    My main priority was turn by turn navigation and it does this very well - I plotted routes using bikehike and uploaded them to the Mio. You can start the route anywhere along its distance and it won't send you back to the start and if you deviate from the route it will recalculate in a few seconds. You get a countdown beep approaching a turn and if your screen is on data it will switch to the map. All very good. Wasn't overly interested in analysing data because I ran Endomondo on my phone in the background anyway. Maps were OSM and TeleAtlas - you can choose - neither are that good but they do the job of showing where you are. Screen definition is way better than Garmin 800/810, but still nowhere near a mobile phone. Mio's web portal is truly crap. The new Cyclo Agent brings full Mac compatability and it works well.

    Ease of use - 8/10. Functionality 8/10. Value for money? Up to you, cycle gps's are too expensive against alternatives. I think the future is a mobile with a separate screen such as the Wahoo RFLKT.
