Unlikely to be any problem with gps signal. The midgies...... learn to love them, or wear a net.
Regarding the two seats, there are unfortunately no seat reservations, so no guarantee that I'll have a double seat to myself.
Of so, its a bargin. Last time I looked the ferry was £45.
May be more now.
Is GPS signal an issue in Scotland? Does anyone have any midge advice?
[emoji23] Very good. I heard my Dutch friend's reply to: 'Dutch huh? Are you a cyclist?'
She replied, 'No! I've just told you. I'm Dutch!'
That's Eurostar, now owned by government agencies of France, Quebec and Belgium, plus the manager's of BT's pension fun. Why would foreign governments want us to have nice things?
On the plus side, those of us who travel on Eurostar without bikes will benefit from improved travelling conditions - a lot of the existing trains are _badly_ in need of refurbishment or remplacement and starting to be a bit of an embarrassment: http://www.seat61.com/London-to-Paris-b ... tar_trains
Wronged individuals want revenge, society as a whole needs a deterrence, which is high enough to not make crime pay. Otherwise why work ten years for £100,000 if you could just nick it and then do a year inside and get rehabilitated.
The rehabilitation of the .13% is a very minor factor in comparison to the 98% kept on the straight and narrow in the first place by the deterrence. Rehabilitation is fine but not if it makes crime and prison a better option than being unemployed most of your life and ending up on the streets.
That is still direct enough to suit your needs. It not the best of roads for cycling and I haven't been near it in 30 years
PLAY ON PEDALS HELPS PARENTS LEARN HOW TO FIX THEIR KIDS BIKES
Cole Cohen (R) from The Bike Station, Glasgow teaches four year old Zara Longwell and her mum Angela bicycle maintenance during a ‘Play on Pedals’ class for parents at Elba Lane Nursery in Glasgow.
A group from Elba Lane Nursery, in Parkhead rolled up their sleeves and learned new skills in bike repair and maintenance.
The group of parents, nursery staff and volunteers received maintenance training to learn to fix children’s bikes.
The day was focused primarily at parents hoping to gain more practical skills, after a request was put in from parents at Elba Lane nursery, following the success of Play on Pedals .
Parents were really keen to learn how to fix and maintain their kids’ bikes as well as support maintenance of the bikes within the nursery.
Training included fixing basic things like punctures or brake cables and pads, taking off wheels and putting them back together again.
Participants were also highlighted about difference between balance and pedal bikes and the benefits of removing stabilizers. They were shown how to take the stabilizers and pedals off and turn their bikes into balance bikes while children are still training.
Angela Longwell, from Glasgow, attended the training session. Her daughter Zara, 4, goes to Elba Lane Nursery. She said, “The training was so informative. I feel much more confident about sorting her bike, things like fixing a puncture, adjusting brakes and oiling the chain. She starts learning with balance bikes at nursery next week. I hope this means we can get the stabilisers off her bike soon! My other daughter didn’t get hers off until she was 7. It feels great not to have to rely on anybody else to make sure Zara’s bike is safe and right for her.”
Margaret Ann MacKinnon, Head at Elba Lane Nursery said, “We want parents to get involved in their children’s activities and learning as much as possible. Parents are learning skills they can take and use to look after their kids bikes. We found parents were struggling to repair their bikes. This is a big boost to their self-reliance.”
Would that be for pavements ie footways as well? Pedestrians don't pay road tax.
And yet we build this *infrastructure" for them all over the place, even on some roads where I rarely see a pedestrian, and they don't pay any bloody road tax /s
'40.000 bicyclists use just one bike lane in Copenhagen daily. If you ignore weekends that is over 10.000.000 journeys a year on that one lane alone. Perhaps they do not count if they do not use Strava'.
Riding home this morning driver crosses bollard dividing road,basically driving up on 'wrong side of road' to all but wipe me out. Had he/she put my wife in a wheelchair I would have liked to have taken him/her out on the spot. For the murder/manslaughter I would go for the rehabilitation awarded to myself: wife in wheelchair/driver RIP. Seems okay!
Wots with the craziness of some of the people out there!
And,have I joined the craziness!
