Comment on Cycling around Lisbon by Jonny denton http://thinkingaboutcycling.com/2013/03/15/cycling-around-lisbon/#comment-36405 Sun, 22 Nov 2015 21:31:38 +0000 http://thinkingaboutcycling.wordpress.com/?p=2226#comment-36405 Hi David (Sucher) you should consider Bristol, UK has invested heavily in pro cycling in the last few years and benefited from the uk cycling boom. although obviously still plenty to do. However from your perspective a very hilly city. Happy to discuss with you further

Comment on Cycling around Lisbon by David Sucher http://thinkingaboutcycling.com/2013/03/15/cycling-around-lisbon/#comment-36009 Sat, 31 Oct 2015 19:14:11 +0000 http://thinkingaboutcycling.wordpress.com/?p=2226#comment-36009 Thanks for the comments on Lisbon, which seems to have some similarities — hills, population size, prosperity — to Seattle, where I am.

I am trying to find _hilly & rainy_ cities which might offer models for Seattle bike planning…places which are in advance of us….and I can’t seem to find any so far. Alas.

Just hit 25 mph SPRINTING on my bmx bike and was wondering if that was fast. A google search led me here, what a nice surprise, very nicely written.

Comment on Kirkstone Pass by Mark http://thinkingaboutcycling.com/2013/07/23/kirkstone-pass/#comment-30269 Tue, 16 Jun 2015 16:11:27 +0000 http://thinkingaboutcycling.wordpress.com/?p=2615#comment-30269 Dave, You could try http://www.bikehike.co.uk as you are familiar with maps, this is a good way of drawing your route. You can then share the link (at least I think you can) in your blog.

I used to live in Lancaster (worked at the Uni like you) and went fell running in the lakes. Recently I rode from Keswick via Cockermouth, Crummock water, buttermere, over newlands pass and back to Keswick. Probably the best ride I’ve ever been on. Did toy with going over Kirkstone Pass the next day, but fell running memories of the hill dissuaded me.

Keep up the blog, great reading.

Mark
