Re: Mid layer...

I too have the Oxford Mondial Jacket (and Trousers). I've been commuting in the Jacket & Trousers since November, so far so good. I just wear a polo shirt under the jacket, when it gets really cold I put the liner back in :lol: Only Joking. I've noticed the draft too (as I call it) at the front of t...

Re: car behaviour when joining a main carriageway

I also remember when an amber light at a traffic lights also meant stop at the line unless you are so close that if you pull up you might cause an accident, Now it appears if a light turns to amber, step on the gas and race through....usually just after it turns red :roll: :D

I commute everyday...

What I can say is do your route and accommodation research by using something along the lines of Google maps and Booking dotcom. Book early and expect to pay a little more than a...
