"Roisen, this is an excellent post. I've argued before that one of our problems is a lack of organisation. While there are a lot of very passionate people here, our fragmentation is one of the key things that marginalises…"
"The story seems to be down. It may be a temporary thing, but can people check please?
As an aside, you would need to clear your browser objects if you wanted to vote more than once. Not that I'd suggest such a thing,…"
"Omar, I certainly agree with you about the complexity of the issues facing cycling.
