    Cyclist deaths soar on rural roads in England

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-59477788 This is shocking. I don't know what we can do as a society to promote a bit more empathy towards the rest of the human race. What I do know is that it's about time we started to remove the privilege of driving completly and forever for some.

    Your Easter Sunday plans (England, sorry!)

    EDIT: just noticed a typo - "Visit Family" should ideally be "Spend time with family", but it doesn't really make much odds! I'm just trying to very roughly gauge the plans of the typical cyclist this Easter (for group-ride planning purposes). n.b. this assumes two things: - the Gov Roadmap...

    May 2021- south England Loop

    I think we’ll be just getting over COVID in spring and it’ll be back to France in July for me. Until then this is my 7/8 day loop for early May. Approx 550 miles I like urban, sea, industrial etc, not huge hills. Grateful for any thoughts. Bristol to bath on Route 4 Bath to Bournemouth on...

    Bill & Billy's World Tour Across North England

    Angry volcanoes! Raging rapids! Glacier peaked mountains! Sun baked deserts! The Way of the Roses has none of these. What it does have is an abundance of rolling hills, narrow twisty lanes and gorgeous little towns and villages. Although to be fair, I think the climb out from Settle could give...

    Where to actually try out shoes in NW England?

    I want some shoes with Boa lacing but have a very specific need regarding the way the shoe grips the heel, so I can't buy online and I wouldn't anyway, same as I wouldn't buy a helmet online. Yet nowadays it's seemingly impossible to find a retailer who holds a decent range of stock where you...

    Route advice needed in South West England.

    Afternoon, I've got a long day in the saddle coming up in a couple of months as I've got to get to Exeter from Northamptonshire, stupid idea but it is all for charity. One option for the route would be heading towards Bath and using N24 to Radstock and also using the Bridgewater to Taunton...

    Round trip of about 120 to 140 miles in England

    Hi, Trying to organise a round trip on hybrid bikes over 3 to 4 days (around 35-40 miles per day), somewhere in England. Would like to see a bit of the coast and nice countryside, but preferably not too hilly, and initial thoughts were Suffolk or Sussex, but open to any suggestions. Has...
