Very sorry to hear that I’m sure as said above Cycling UK will help... I’m a member too. It’s so sad seeing the awful attitude of some motorists to cyclists.

i think it goes both ways Tim. Before i could drive i saw the bad motorists as i cycled along. Now i can drive i see the bad cyclists sailing through red lights, the nutcase motorbikes going way too fast, and the bad drivers thinking they are gods gift and everyone else is just in the way.

Ultimately everyone on the road should be considerate of everyone else but that is not always the case

John, given that the police are already involved can they not offer you some advice?

Not spoken to them, apart from when they came to inform us Jon, I stood there with my gob open and brain not working to be honest, they have his bike and property, so a visit looks on the cards.

Thank yous, he'll be o.k not life threatening or liable to lead to long term problems.

Nowt to do with money, just looks the only way to hurt him, really not that concerned about his insurer, they've had years of no claims off me.

May be home tomorrow they cannot operate till swelling goes.

Bit of a whinge sorry, yesterday my Son was knocked off his Cycle, tea time on a good visibility day, now laid in hospital with multiple broken bones. He's 39 years old and no idiot on his bike, story so far is a Transit van took him the width of the road, then drove off, but returned after a time. Police have statements from witnesses. Son has no memory of being hit, but the village grapevines says he wasn't at fault, they say some interesting things and I'll leave it there.

So my question, which is the best way to get a lawyer for my Sons case, and can we go after the driver if he's at fault ? If what I've heard is true, I would like to make his life a misery.

Yesterday I went flying with my Wot4 electric, the normal balsa ARTF one, for the first time since last year.

I'd just increased the wing-incidence from a tad less than negative (as manufactured!) to +0.5° and added a smidge of down- and right-thrust, also moved the CG back another 5mm, then ran it again through the usual trim tests which were fine... but still can't get it to enter a flat spin!

Keep tweaking C.G and upping movements, you'll get there.

Few hours with mower today, then two flyers, warm day but a bit breezy, next weeks not looking bad. smiley
