Sterling advice there.I wonder if GMP will have anything more constructive than http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/2010/06/self-defence-for-bicyclists-1901/ ?
Its amazing that there were vulgar cads around even in those days. I wonder if the attacks on the loop were in a particular area or spread about? There were/are two prolific bike thieves in stockport who have been discussed on the pinkbikes forum but im not sure if they are inside at the moment and in any case, they are teenage louts ,not adult men.I wonder if GMP will have anything more constructive than http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/2010/06/self-defence-for-bicyclists-1901/ ?
I wouldn't say it was quiet, but there can be times when you don't see anyone for quite a few minutes. I have stopped and been on the phone (before the recent incidents) for 5 mins and nobody has passed.Never done the loop. I use the bridgewater canal through trafford which is busy enough that it feels reasonably safe....is the loop so quiet that there would be nobody coming along every 30 seconds or so?
