    Cycling Safety Camera - Ghost Drift XL & Others (fly 12 CE ? )

    Since I got knocked off my bike a few years back - I've always cycled with a camera. I have the cycliq Fly 12 - I like the long the battery life and the fact that it loops around overwriting the oldest footage (although you can lock footage if you wish). I did have a trail of the Fly 12CE -...

    Recommendations please, for COMFORTABLE safety footwear.

    Hello. As per the title. What I particularly want to avoid is a toe cap that feels narrow. *I have a pair of almost worn out Trojan Extreme Comfort from approx 10 years ago, and would love another pair. They feel like they were made for me; loads of space for my toes but very sturdy and secure.

    Pedestrian Safety Question

    Sorry not cycling but I didn't know who better to ask.... My son started secondary school this week and is walking by himself for the first time. He has a tricky road to cross and had a near miss from his rather unclear explanation this week. I went with him to the junction tonight so we could...

    Helmet but not safety

    That got your attention. I'm thinking of buying a helmet but don't want to get started on protection or lack of offered by a helmet. My question is different. I currently wear a cap when out on the bike. I sweat. A lot. No really a lot. Would the airflow provided by a helmet help with this? It's...

    Elf and safety mate

    I live about 100 metres from our local tip/recycling place. I have just changed the oil in the Caterham and walked over to dispose of the waste oil. I was stopped at the entrance and told in no uncertain terms that pedestrian access is no longer allowed due to elf an' safety. Not us he said...

    John Constable, inventor of the modern safety bicycle?

    Was in the National Gallery the other day fighting my way through cruising folks taking phone pics of the paintings (told one guy who I hadn't noticed who primly asked me to move that he should go and look at the paintings online) . Admiring constable's Salisbury Cathedral and Leadenhall from...

    Health & Safety gone ... just gone

    Recently, a couple of factories my company supplies took on a new Health & Safety Manager. An ex-army Sergeant Major, this guy quickly became something of a terror. He insisted that my company fit safety guards on over 300 tools despite there being no recorded accidents with thousands of these...

    Aversion to your own safety, would you use this?

    Picked up the angry grinder to find that it had a piece missing, would you have used it or changed the disc?

    Locking a Brompton

    Hello all, I finally got myself a 2nd hand Brompton, loving it so far. But today I found out that in the new workplace I won't be able to keep it indoors :/ There's a shed on site for staff to lock their bikes, but as you'd expect I'm very hesitant about locking mine, even if it may be safer...

    Breakaway mudguard clips on bents

    Just been reading BettySwollox sad thread about breakaway mudguard clips. Was surprised to notice last year that my otherwise well-sorted Nazca Fuego had none on the front. Fortunately I had a pair in my bits box, and set about fitting them. This was not so easy, as the left hand stays have...

    Is this a 'Health and Safety' issue ...?

    ... an example of 'spot the braincell'? :wacko: ... or just someone with a secret death wish? :laugh: I stumbled across it while doing very important research on the Internet the other evening! :whistle:

    1939 Harding Safety Cycle tricycle for sale.

    1939 Harding Safety Cycle tricycle Fascinating (to me, anyway!) bit of kit. Has one wheel drive and all three wheels are braked (more of that anon) I blew the tyres up, had a LBS free up the rear brakes and rode this about 1/4 mile, it was great fun but very hard work. Not having ridden a...

    Action cameras and safety

    The other day I was forced off the road by a lorry heading towards me on the wrong side of the road of an S bend. The lorry was travelling far too fast in what is a 70km limit, and I only manged to avoid it by tumbling the bike into the hedge. I was wearing the full high-visibility gear by the...

    Are the safety stats misleading ?

    So what do we know:- In the uk about 100-120 cyclists per year are killed on uk roads There is a formula that calculates 1 cycling death per 2 million miles travelled (I think) Then there is the alarming figure of serious injuries while cycling - this is currently an upward trend about about...

    Do any of you have any knowledge of gas safety regs?

    Not sure if this is right bit of the forum for this question? We're in private rented property and for the first time the landlord used British Gas instead of one of his dubious workers to do the gas safety check and they've condemned the cooker (one of the burners goes out when on low setting)...
