  • Liverpool City Council to charge for bike parking

    15 December 2011 by Bigdog365

    I recently sent an enquiry to Liverpool City Council regarding a report that they were to begin charging for bike parking. Their e-mailed reply confirms that, although not 100% confirmed yet, they are likely to begin charging for bike parking next year. Payment will probably have to be made by phone, thus removing the need for tickets to be issued. I currently commute on my 1250 Bandit, but given...

  • No national police course?

    12 December 2011 by colin mcclure

    Just read the story about police offering additional safety training - fantastic.
