Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

My nephew was a senior engineer with Dyson's ill-fated car project. He's just got a new job in Eindhoven with a start-up I haven't come across before. The headline technology of using solar panels you'd think would be a complete non-starter, but it's really all about increasing efficiency, and using...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Had a similar experience a few years ago when I met a stationary queue just over a blind brow, Fortunately the bloke behind stopped with about an inch to spare, but I’ve never seen smoke come off all four wheels of a Ford Escort before.

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Driving home today, my way was blocked at the junction where I turn off the main Totnes-South Brent road at Avonwick onto the Yealmpton road, which will be the route of the ToB on Monday. My place is about 200m past the turning but a large policeman on a motorcycle, stationary in the middle of the r...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Happy to make an exception for you, Ray. I just took the dog for her evening stroll and I can report that the Avon is thriving, as it has been since the end of lockdown. I just looked at the route of the Devon stage of the ToB, and it puts it in perspective when it’s all on roads you know well. I’d ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Are you excited about the prospect of having new neighbours Shane? I have to admit I was being a bit disingenuous there. I’m not a great cycling fan, and my heart sank a little when I saw the sign. The road in the photo is on the route from Yealmpton to Totnes, a distance of about 15 miles, and one...

This has appeared at the bottom of my road. Should I dig out my excited trousers?
