    Bicycle lanes for safety

    Those ones do look pretty precarious. I've seen some worse ones that are only around a foot or two wide which seems a little strange to me. I didn't want to say it but I reckon you're right about councils using the surplus money.

    Drones...

    It all depends on what you classify as a good landing. If you can't be bothered with trying to snag a hook on a carrier, just go in gear up :D

    Cyclist are wussies and motorcyclist are manly men

    I had a similar thing on the motorway last week. I was in the outside lane with a little distance to the car in front due to wet conditions and we were doing about 70-75. A motorbike comes up behind me and starts flashing his lights a couple times. He then passes me on the inside and as he does...

    Bikes and beer.

    Over here it's all about parking tickets to bring in the revenue. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see more stuff being cracked down on to raise some money seeing as the police services have been hacked to hell in cutbacks...

    Sounds like a crappy situation you got involved in, sorry to hear about it :( The laws over here are far from perfect and have an equal amount of stupidity to them. The latest one which just passed was the banning of smoking in cars while a child is present, but what if others are in the car...

    It shall be mine!

    It's similar with what I've started doing in my car however I take a small foot pump and if I have any problems I pump I over inflate it a little while I get to the nearest place I can get it fixed.

    Did You Ride Today?

    Did another ride during the night and did the same route. Nothing interesting happened during this one. It was very quiet and I listened to some documentaries while riding.

    Bicycle lanes for safety

    It's a bit of a shame that something cannot be worked out to make bicycle lanes more bicycle friendly, as crazy as that sounds. Drains could be moved over to the side and as for runners, signs could be erected but all this is wishful thinking.

    Bikes and beer.

    That I did not know :) The UK is pretty different I think though. If you're seen walking around drunk the cops will leave you alone, or at least ask if you're ok and then go on their way. They only seem to intervene if the person is flat out drunk to the point they cannot stand, they then get...

    Cyclists do have that staying power, after all ;)

    Did You Ride Today?

    There's still no snow in these parts. I'm sort of jealous of you guys having all the "fun" :D Went out for a ride last night and had a little music playing. I didn't go far, just cycled around the back roads for about 3 miles before returning home. I normally wear trainers for riding but these...

    Bicycle lanes for safety

    198 is a seriously crazy number. With that many deaths there do need to be more measures in place to make it at least that little bit safer for cyclists riding along busy and less busy roads. Even if the outsides of the roads are widened a little it might make things easier and separate the traffic.

    It shall be mine!

    I'm all for these gadgets and it does look pretty good but I wouldn't be able to justify spending £40/$57 on something I would only use to do my bike & car with when I already have a footpump that works just as well. Might consider it as a present for my dad though...

    Bikes and beer.

    I think if a cop saw someone riding around, swaying from side to side and such I'm sure they would investigate and at least advise them not to continue riding in a drunk state. I'm not sure on the laws but I think it is an offence to operate any sort of vehicle while under the influence.

    I love this guy

    Pretty funny gif but I can't help but feel it looks a bit set-up to me from the way he stumbles into the wall of the bridge, setting up for him getting thrown over the edge. Still funny though, and even more funnier if it was a legit incident and the attackers were supporters of the guy who got...
