Cycling to Jail

There isn’t much of a logical pattern to the way I’ve been updating recently. The following story for example is now a few days old:

Jail threat over pedal cycling

Four men face five years in jail if they carry weapons, wear body armour – or even ride a pedal cycle.

The men received anti-social behaviour orders (Asbo) on Wednesday after a police operation against gun and drug crime in Manchester.

That’ll be just down the road from here then. Full story here.

This is a new website that is claiming to be “your online bike guide”, well it’s not mine. Well not yet anyway.

There seem to be loads of people setting up mountain bike websites these days. You have to wonder at what point there can be too many. I have often thought the same about cars, but people still keep on buying them, the numbers grow and the traffic gets worse.

Anyway all these sites have been popping up, people giving their opinions on things and writing in a style that implies an air of knowledge and credibility. Except most of them don’t offer anything on their site that provides any kind of background on which to judge their position with respect to what they’re saying. I reckon you need to know who you’re dealing with, which is why I’ve always had this.
