    Do ebikes take the fun out of cycling ?

    [. So do ebikes take the fun out of cycling what do you think ? With Angina+Asthma+Back pain I'm afraid that cycling had been taken out of cycling! Ebikes put it back again. I've been off road (in the wrong sense) for a little while, having cataracts replaced with clear lenses - brilliant...

    Another Boris Johnson consequence

    When I'm working in West Africa I often spend a few minutes meditating in the War Graves cemetery at Fajara. There are the graves of the British crew of a flying boat which crashed into the sea off the coast of Senegal, the grave of a French colonel of the Foreign legion, and dozens of graves...

    Another Boris Johnson consequence

    Let's not worry too much. Enjoy Theme Park Britain while the sun shines and until that nice Mrs May presses the big red button the moment some computer sounds a false alarm and all our worries will be as dust ...

    Are ebikes worth the price tag?

    We've had experience of 5 eBikes: 1) A PowerByke, built like a tank, weighed almost as much as one, would climb the wall of a house. Sold it for 50% of initial cost after 2 years. It's weight weighed against it but it was good for 20 mile trips. 2 & 3) We bought matching JuicyBike Classics about...

    Ebike cinematic fame?

    Has the eBike really arrived? Has anyone spotted one on screen? I'm excepting consumer TV programmes: has one featured as a mode of transport, been stolen, been an object of desire, taken the place of a car, or simply passed by in the background, in a film or TV series?

    I'm 80+ but I ain't no lady! Perhaps the beard is a clue?

    Woosh Gallego

    [ I live in hope that I will succumb to the charms of what is, to be honest, a very pretty little bike. Fingers crossed. Me: 80 years, 12 stones, mildly unfit, about 600 miles per year. Short up-date. The pinger on the bell has fallen off and the rear wheel no longer locks into position when...

    Insult to Democracy

    What fun this referendum has been: plots, sub-plots and still more to come. It has attracted discussion, meetings of minds, unusual applications of statistics, dreams of Utopia, clerics spouting scripture and all manner of facial contortions by politicians attempting to appear sincere. What will...

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    I'm just a tad worried that if Remain win the vote on Thursday all those talented Brexiters will up sticks, resign their jobs and emigrate to Iraq and similar countries and build schools and hospitals there, perhaps never to return to the UK. How will we manage, bereft of such talent? We'll have...
