London taxi boss Steve McNamara: Cyclists are the 'Isis of London'

Steve McNamara, the general secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association (LTDA), also dubbed cyclists ‘loonies’. His comments came in response to the new ‘crossrail’ super cycle highways that Boris Johnson recently gave the go ahead to throughout London. Speaking to LBC, Mr McNamara said: ‘The loonies out there in the cycling world, they’re almost the sort of Isis of London. ‘Their views and their politics – if you are not with them, and we are with the majority of it, then nothing is too bad for you.’ Karl Roche sur Twitter : "The importance of functional threshold #power for #cycling. - My.socialtoaster.

Each of these has something to do with how well you performed on the ride that day. Sometimes a power meter can seem overwhelming. Shimano bring out wind muffler for sports camera.

Shimano bring out wind muffler for sports camera

The latest addition to the camera accessories is what they slightly confusingly called, “Wind Screen CM-MT06.” It’s not for the lens of the camera but the mic, to prevent wind noise. This is much like the “dougal” covers that are used on shotgun mics for outdoor recording. Wind noise is a problem on most cameras and so it will be interesting to see how this works in practice.

I would love to build a huge aerobic base the old fashioned way, but I love my wife and I'm pretty fond of my kids and my career.


To ride 12-20 hours a week these days I would have to pull the nuclear option on my life and that's just not going to happen. I'm not alone. In fact, after 15 years in the coaching business I'd argue there are more athletes like me - both competitors and non-competitors - than there are athletes who are consistently devoted to more than 8 hours of weekly training. Yet the concept of "base building" still persists as the training standard for endurance athletes in the winter.

Let me put this as simply as I can: Riding the same weekly training hours that you are already habituated to (because that's all the time you have) at lower intensities than your fitness can already support won't produce a stronger base of aerobic fitness.

Left hook collisions — where a motor vehicle turning left hits a cyclist — were involved in nine of London’s fourteen cycling deaths in 2013. Now the borough of Camden is to get what's believed to be London’s first intersection specifically designed to make a left hook collision impossible. Known as Cobden Junction, the intersection of Crowndale Road, Eversholt Road and Camden High Street is currently a mess of traffic lights and one-way streets with no provision for cycling. Or, in other words, a typical London intersection.

The dreaded left hook A proposal from Camden Cyclists — the local branch of the London Cycling Campaign — would replace the current junction with one that uses kerbs between lanes and cycle-specific lights to eliminate the chance of a left hook. According to Camden Cyclists coordinator Jean Dollimore, that means the modification will definitely go ahead. MTBTR : #Cycling in #London: unloading... Greater London Authority. Boris Johnson says he'd back ban on cyclists wearing earphones. Boris Johnson on CS2 extension Nov 2013 (source MayorofLondon on Twitter) Mayor of London Boris Johnson has said that he would support a ban on bike riders in London wearing earphones – leading one commentator to suggest that his credibility with cyclists “is evaporating.”

In an interview with BBC Radio London’s Vanessa Feltz, Mr Johnson also appeared to downplay calls led by British Cycling’s Chris Boardman for London to ban lorries at peak hours. The Mayor told Ms Feltz that Transport for London (TfL), which he chairs, regularly discusses the issue of cyclists and pedestrians using handheld electronic devices.

He described earphones used by people to listen to music while riding bikes as “and absolute scourge,” and said he would be in favour of banning them.

Following reports earlier today that the expected takeover of the current Euskaltel Euskadi team by Formula One driver Fernando Alonso might not go ahead, the team has confirmed that this is indeed the case. It means that the riders and others who had expected to be part of the new setup have been left without jobs at a very crucial point of the season.

“Euskaltel representatives can not hide their disappointment at the outcome of the negotiation process. It is a sad day for Euskaltel and the team, after the expectations generated by the agreement in principle reached in late August and public statements made at the time by Fernando Alonso and his representatives,” the team said in a statement. It added that a road map which had laid out terms of the agreement had not been completed, despite efforts to do so. The driver had previously indicated that he wants the former pro and current Oakley representative Kiko Garcia to head the project, and to be able to appoint his own staff. Richard Ballantine RIP.
