    Recommendations pls. Women’s trousers for commuting

    I have a pair of winter trousers by Shimano which are starting to look a bit shabby and the Velcro round the ankles is starting to let me down. They don’t seem to make them any more. Looking for recommendations - womens winter trousers, as warm as possible, shower proof, possibly mtb style.

    Commuting on road bike through winter

    Hi all, just after a bit of advice. I took my Trek Emonda SL5 2021 into the bike shop today as it had a flat tyre. I commute to work daily on it (5 miles each way). The man in the shop said it was unusual to commute on that bike, and also that I shouldn’t use it through a ‘British winter’ as it...

    Budget retro looking bike

    Ok, a bit of long shot, I know: My partner is looking for a retro looking bike (steel frame?) for commuting. Her budget is around the £800 mark (she absolutely doesn't want/can go over that). For reference, she found these 2 that she likes: Tokyobike - CS26 -...

    Commuting in the dark of night.

    I leave for work at 5.45 am and my commute takes an hour. Over the last month, the earlier miles of my ride have been getting increasingly dark and on Monday this week, I left for work in the pitch black of night and in about another month, my whole morning commute will be in the dark. The...

    Back to infrequent commuting tomorrow....😀

    .. and I’m really looking forward to it! Now that we have settled into our new home, I have a 16mile e/w commute to enjoy, and a new bike to do this on, so tomorrow will be my first. I’ll probably only manage a couple of times a week at most, what with age, work, and alternate sites, but I’m...

    All Weather Commuting Bike

    My current commuting bike is in the workshop having a couple of issues looked at. However it is getting rather tired and worn, and thinking about an upgrade. Please look at the spec below and make some suggestions. The thoughts must meet the spec. I have been commuting daily for over 10 years...

    Cycle insurance for business commuting?

    Hi can anyone suggest a good company that will cover me doing home visits with an e-bike? Some of the good ones exclude business use strangely. It’s not just commuting to one place of work. the bike will be worth around £5000 so comprehensive insurance essential...

    Commuting in 0 degrees

    we have some cold weather coming in. It looks like dry but cold weather but am anxious about ice especially in cycle paths etc and it's not like I am going to see anything. Would you cycle in 0 degrees for 17 miles?

    Motivation for commuting in the winter?

    Hi everyone I’m fairly new to road cycling, started about 6 months ago. I’ve got a decent bike and all the winter clothing I’d need for cold and rain. Even the commute from Solihull to Coventry and back is a nice country route. And I only do that on Sunday’s as well. But the weather and all...

    Commuting 'logistics'

    I am a student at a uni over 20 miles away and I live in the middle of nowhere (rural area) with my parents. Gave up digs as the quality of life is not good enough for me. Driving 45 minutes each way isn't too bad, but I thought I could do better as my fitness has been slowly declining for...

    Commuting - Which "waterproof's"

    Commuting with a laptop

    I've found myself cycling to work less and less frequently over the last few months. I'm having to do more and more work from home, which means lugging my rather heavy (2.6kg) and bulky 15" CAD laptop backwards and forwards. I've been keeping up the cycling in other areas but have missed my...

    Commuting - Rucksack Choices

    I recently binned my trusty Aldi rucksack after it finally started to come apart and replaced it with another special buy one I had kicking around. Unfortunately, the new one is a bit rubbish. It's tiny and barely fits my towel and work kit. Anyway, i'm now in the market for a newer, better...

    26" slick tyres for commuting

    I've been running 26x1.5 m+ on my MTB commuter bike, but not impressed with the lack of wet grip. Last week I had a puncture (drawing pin) and (unrelated) sidewall failure on the front which has prompted me to look for a replacement, but the choice in 26" seems quite limited. I'm looking for at...

    Unintentional donations...

    So, on the way to work yesterday. Got on the train, couldn't put my folder where I normally put it, so went diagonally opposite to my usual slot. Got the iPad out, put the rucksack on the shelf, took my summer gloves off and reached round to put them in my bike helmet, just like I do most...

    What I have learned after week 1 of commuting

    Thanks to a change of employment, I've just made the leap from weekend warrior to cycling 8miles to work (and 8 miles back) Here's a list of things I've realised after week one. 1. Your bike gets a lot dirtier, very quickly. 2. I need more clothes. 3. I need fatter tyres. 4. For fatter tyres I...

    Quitting Winter Commuting

    Something snapped last night. Yet another close pass, a DPD van driver. He was stuck behind me for ~30 seconds on a climb with stationary traffic backed up in the other lane so it wasn't possible for him to pass. I had a strong secondary position on the narrow road. He cut around sharply at the...
