    I have walking ones too if needed, they have different toe spikes to climbing ones, also a walking axe. I also,have boots that are compatible and comfortable, size 43. What are you planning on, it sounds like a bit of an adventure?

    Don Smith Memorial Ride 2019 is now live

    Good day out today, hope everyone else enjoyed it too. It turns out the cakes were a thank you to the Jets for pacing me up the Haylie?!

    DONE! New Year, New Bike time - keeping it "real" though!

    Lovely to see Bike’s first pictures, it has been a long wait since you first announced you were expecting a new arrival. Hope to see you two out and about soon.

    What is the plan and route. I could manage a couple of hours before ruining it all on a lunch out.

    Sunday 24th Feb Reliability Run #4

    I have had better starts to a ride, not getting onto the bike track proper before puncturing from all the glass shards. That meant a bit of a push on my own to catch up with everyone else, not helped by me not paying attention to the route. There is something quite amazing and heartwarming to see everyone waiting for you, so a big thank you to everyone who was there, a new measure of reliability. Maybe I should also post up recipes for Paul Leavy.

    Renfrew-Shieldhall cycle route consultation

    My main issue is that of segregation v integration. For a relatively short section of road the proposal favours removing bikes onto their own dedicated lanes. I strongly feel that this will just move and concentrate issues of road sharing and safety to roads before and after the cycle track. We have all been on bike lanes that abruptly stop before junctions, where they are most needed. I know the section of road and there is ample room for a bike lane on both sides of the road. Make sure it is painted with a solid line so that there can be stricter enforcement. At junctions have the bike box at the front and a dropped kerb onto the pavement, giving cyclists the chioce of staying with traffic or usinf pedestrian signals. This does appear to be very much a box ticking project that has access to funding because of the bike provision and will do little to benefit the local people whilst massively increasing congestion I could go on and on...but I am in favour of safer roads and appropriate good quality provision for cyclists. Yet as we all know it is dangerous, inconsiderate drivers that are at the heart of this issue.
