THINK! Safety campaign. Moment of Genius?
Yes, its shit. But as well as being shit, for reasons more than adequately explained elsewhere , is it, very quietly, a work of complete genius? Obviously there must be no ambiguity in a simple safety message - if we're riding or driving along and an overta...

Car Overturned on Road. Cyclists to Remain Frightened.
Its by Britney but I can't even see how he could slant this against cyclists . The tone is dreadful of course, designed to attribute no agency to anyone involved. No, Raymond, the car did not flip. The driver somehow managed to overturn the car in a 20mph s...

Letter from Olympians - pretty close to spot on!
Just a couple of quick thoughts before I dash out to work. This is in the news . Open letter from British Cycling, being widely promoted by Chris Boardman, about Olympic cyclists calling for an increased spend in transport cycling (to a still modest 5% of t...

Dear Grafton Centre and Vue Cinema - why do you hate us?
I promised you a local blog article for local people. So here it is.  Please bear with me while I get through the ranty bit. I promise you I'm ending this with a constructive proposal to make things better for cyclists in Cambridge.  We (my better half and ...

Sport Cycling for Men and Women, and the rest of us...
Another Tour de France goes by, and like in 2012 we're heading in to another Olympic games where, with luck, we'll follow up amazing British success on the Tour with a grand medal haul at the Olympics. And as we see every year following the Tour,  two quest...

New Crap Cycling on Arbury Road
So far... Well, I want to say so far so good, but it isn't. Its better than it was, but I can't help thinking that if this still misses the point. The plan for Arbury Road cycle provision was always so incomplete as to make the scheme almost valueless. Seri...

Obligatory Helmet Opinion Piece
There will be another more reasoned and less sweary post about bike helmets and a later time. In the mean time if you're offended by things like swear words then this post is not for you... Of late I seem to be addressing several of the cycling issues that ...

Cyclists vs. Runners
This is another of those 'belt it out before work' type posts. I spotted a tweet thats been picked up by bigger feeds like ukrunchat, and its worth a ponder: Why are so many cyclists nowadays riding on the pavement? I'm having to dodge them all the time whe...

Team GB on the Velodrome - how good are they?
This isn't normally a blog about sport cycling, but I do occasionally touch on the subject. I'm a bit of a nerd for track cycling, I have been since Channel 4 started showing it on television back in the '80s. And in this post I'll look at Team GB track cyc...

Cyclist Licenses - the bad idea that will not go away
There are plenty of blog posts and articles with this already, so forgive me for not going into the already well-trodden details as to why this isn't a good idea. The arguments have been made and not addressed by advocates of cyclist licensing - and until t...
