shock horror, I got overtaken by two, yes two, cyclists on the way to Leith today. They weren’t even lycra-clad whippets. I can go months in the winter without anyone passing me – the humiliation.

Counted 30 folk going the other way, nearly a record (32).

I also really, really don’t like the new “five way junction” priority. Why should the main cyclepath have give way markings? eh-

Commuter Chat-
Coming in this morning I had to put the gloves back on, brrrr
Also, for the first time EVER, girls outnumbered boys on the cyclepath, what’s going on?!

Halfords?

Did a little recon on Sunday. We’re still cheaper than the big H for inner tubes, brake blocks, repair kits, tyre levers, bottle cages, mudguards, cables ,tyres, servicing, repairs, etc. Our staff are qualified (and have ridden more than a BMX ). If you’d rather spend a little bit less and get better value and service go to an independent bike shop.
Attitude to shopping; “Quality Seeker – I’d rather spend a little extra on something if I know its going to last”, then why are you shopping at H ?
