Scotsman gets Cycling Column

Posted by chdot on October 9, 2006

Every Saturday cycling is guaranteed a mention in The Scotsman‘s Living section.

Haddington based writer (and cyclist) Donald Smith explains his intentions in his first column. He analyses recent Scottish Executive statistics and concludes (quite reasonably!) that more people should try cycling – more often.

Comments can be added at the bottom for others to read or sent to him at cycling@scotsman.com

Two More Bike Thieves Caught

Posted by chdot on October 9, 2006

A gang of three teenagers was caught in August by the Police in Edinburgh.

Today’s Evening News reports that a pair of “professional thieves” have been caught looking for good quality Mountain Bikes in Marchmont stairs.

This is obviously good news, but the story highlights the dangers of relying on cast iron banisters.

City of Edinburgh Council has a pilot project looking at cycle security in stairs. There are inevitable problems getting all flat owners to agree on installing storage systems.
