Too often we  find motorists who infuriate us if not endanger us. Every once  in a while  we find a kindred spirit or a friendly face. Rather  than  the typical  rant thread how about one where we…Continue

"For once I agree with Anne.  The Tour just won't be the same without the Phil and Paul dynamic.  Bob Roll is cool in his post-race commentary.  But not the same as Phil & Paul."

Sadly he is no longer in a "spot of bother."

Paul Sherwen, a broadcaster who cycling  fans have been listening to for  years has  passed away.  In typical British  understatement he would  describe a  racer who was feeling  the  effects of  a climb as being in  a "spot of  bother."  It will be hard to  imagine  grand tours without he and Phil  Liggett having a conversation  and  letting  the rest of us in  on it while the  racers swept through scenic vistas. …See More

David Barish replied to dav's discussion No Biking On The Riverwalk? New Ordinance Would Force Bicyclists To Walk Their Rides
"I have little problem with a ban. The river walk is not very wide and can be claustrophobic for pedestrians without the presence of bikes. I would not imagine riding my bike there. In this a high  traffic tourist area bicycle traffic will lead…"
