    Cool, thanks for the detailed directions
    One for the wahoo. Will see how it goes later. Anything to avoid Notting Hill etc.
    I'm even more amazed that K&C vetoed the TFL plans having experienced that stretch.

    So, I need to go from Wood Lane (W12) to Regent Street (W1A) on a regular basis. I did it today and went Shepherds Bush rbt - Holland Park Avenue -Hyde Park and then through Wigmore Street. It was grim. The Holland Park Avenue through Notting Hill bit was the worst.

    Is there any possibility of quieter, cleaner route? I don't mind if it takes a bit longer.

    Weird. Scary the desperate tactics some people will stoop to because they don't like a bike lane.

    Decided to try and put some 29er MTB tyres on my Genesis Vagabond and do some offroad probably on South Downs Way and maybe some bits of North Downs. Doubt I'll ever be doing serious offroad miles, just a bit of fun now and then.

    Apparently the max clearance is 2.1 inch wide, but I think I've seen builds with wider tyres. Not having a front mech might make the difference.

    Anyway, I've no idea about MTB tyres. What would be a decent tyre for this kind of terrain? I'm guessing steer clear of light weight racing tyres...

    Can't see the pic? Which Oris is it?

    Bizarre programme. A quick complaint to Ofcom can't hurt, though:

    Watching it now. Weird. Feels like a self-parody, like it doesn't believe in its own message. So much of the footage and interviewees completely undermine the argument.

    Boardman and British Cycling getting their response in to the Channel 5 programme:

    It's unbelievable. I'm quite amazed it is even going to be broadcast.

    Today I watched this 12 minute video

    on Utrecht...and then read about C5's programme.

    The UK feels so backward and reactionary when you compare the two side by side.

    Bought a second hand pair of Time Allroad Grippers (to try out double sided). Seems that this bar doesn't seem to be fixed in place and gradually moves out after riding. Presumably it's missing some kind of retainer/bolt? Any one with any experience with this issue and know a solution? It's same on both pedals.
