Scroll down....

Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Cycling has become far too macho for my liking



Asolutely agree with this article in The Guardian. Road cycling (i.e. racing) is the new cycling orthodoxy. From a journalist's point of view, pick up cycling magazine and its mostly racing, racing, racing. The cyclist who just wants to potter along gently through the countryside as a sightseeing adventure, stopping to take the odd picture of some interesting building or whatever, is barely represented in the cycling media. Instead we constantly get a long train of lycra-crad racers, macho discussions about gear and training and whatnot. Stuff that crap. That to me is not cycling, not proper cycling anyway.... http://www.theguardian.com/environment/bike-blog/2016/apr/12/no-more-hippies-and-explorers-lament-for-the-changed-world-of-cycling
