    Cyclists, bikers and cars!

    Interesting thread: I drive and cycle, live in area frequented by a lot of road cyclists due to the quiet roads.... The behavior of club cyclists can be infuriating: 3/4 abreast, in a large groupe, travelling at 20 mph, on fast two lane counrty lanes makes it very hard to pass. Even a couple of...

    Lakes Weekend

    I've stayed at that campsite in february, the showers and toilets were all frozen ( I was in a nice warm caravan ;) though) It's a great place, nice and quiet, and a good location. Thanks for reminding me of it! Good trip report btw.

    Waxing an old Fjallraven Thin jacket

    +1 for not bothering with the wax! imo for waterproofing it's a waste of time, go the grangers etc route. The wax does seem to improve wind / weather resistance though, obviously at the price of breathability.

    Anyone tried these Pods or this campsite ?

    I've stayed at grizedale a few times a year for the last four or five years. It's a superb site,my favourite in the lakes, primarily due to the owner, Arthur, a farmer who had diversified and is always friendly and helpful, and the fact he allows open fires. The pods are excellent, please dont...

    Hands only CPR

    i think the new ad, and the hands free protocol is superb. most of the people i know would be unwilling / reluctant to perform 'mouth to mouth' cpr. There no real excuse for not wanting to give chest compressions. It's not rocket science, plus the ad's caught people's attention across the...
