Fooled by the weather radar

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jilden May 30, 2018. 10 Replies

Tonight a glance at weather radar looked all clear (very much like this screenshot from after I got home). But it had me fooled, and it steadily drizzled pretty well all the way home. So does rain…Continue

Peter B replied to rossmg's discussion Paid to Cycle to Work!
"There's nothing magic about cycling; there's the same health benefit from most other forms of exercise. So for consistency, the same payment should also be made to anyone who does not drive to work, and regularly exercises."
