And that is how we get policing wrong...
Just popped out of work for a bit to pick up some lunch and caught a little montage that, for me, encapsulates almost everything wrong with policing cycling in the UK. Trinity Street was in effect, closed - a demo was due along any minute. It was also pissi...

Supermarkets aren't ignoring us. They fear us.
Those who read this blog regularly might remember that I've touched on the subject of shopping by bike several times. I want to come at it from a different angle this time. Supermarkets are set up for motorists. Their PR folk will say this isn't so, while o...

Bike markings to be removed from bus lanes?
This is causing something of a stir among some cyclists here. Indeed, whoever was tweeting on behalf of Cambridge Cycling Campaign the other day was getting quite hot under the collar. And, incidentally Camcycle folk, you desperately need to start initialin...

Incident on the Road this morning
I've just drafted this letter and emailed it off. Lets see what happens, eh? Names removed, of course... Dear Sir, I was in your shop this morning to complain about your driver on (x) Road. I'm copying Sergeant (x) in to this email because he's our local po...

Short note on a terrifying ride
Just got home to do some work in peace and quiet, but before I start I'll relate what just happened on the way home. Riding up towards a roundabout (Queens Road/Northampton Street), looked, signalled, picked right hand lane, and approached to turn right. A ...

20mph zone already failing in Cambridge
Ages back I said that we're getting a 20mph limit, sort of, except that its a bit crap .  Well we've got it now, at least in North Cambridge, and its crap. Its crap because our police force have no intention of enforcing it. They never did really , so counc...

Rate Limiting Steps. Or, don't overtake and brake, you idiot.
I remember learning a really important lesson in kinetics in chemistry at school. Well, from my chemistry teacher rather than in class.  It actually came in the corridor on the way up to the school dinner hall, where we'd always run up as a bunch of lads to...

Motoring Tribes?
I've been pondering on how motorists view cyclists, and how its all too common for cyclists to be lumped in to a presumed homogeneous whole ("cyclists all go through red lights" "cyclists are all irresponsible" "well I don't mean ALL cyclists, but all of th...

Dear Bury St. Edmunds
Dear Bury, My partner and I got the train on Sunday to watch the end of the Womens Tour of Britain. I think you'll agree it was a great event, and quite a coup for your city to host the climax to such an exciting race. A great success. We really enjoyed wat...

Why shouldn't I ride on the pavement?
I mentioned the other day that I saw the Police out on Arbury Road ineffectually enforcing the 20mph speed limit. This morning I was out on Arbury Road again. I was passed my multiple motons who were well in excess of the 20mph limit. One went through the r...

Policing 20mph is too dangerous?
I've criticised the policing (or, lack thereof) of our 20mph speed limit before .  On Friday (the Friday before the May bank holiday) I got to see this policing in the flesh.  Three Cambridgeshire Constabulary offiers were out on Arbury Road, near to the Ma...

Air pollution incident - where do I collect my cheque?
We're in the middle of a severe air pollution incident in England . Actually I'm slightly put out because it hasn't rained here and whenever there's one of these foreign dust falling from the sky incidents I seem to miss it, and apparently the cause is that...
