    I may be able to explain the McDonalds fries - the salt is a preservative, and the thin cut allows them to dry out which also helps preserve them. I still haven't eaten McDonalds food for years though.

    Is there any evidence that muggings are a greater risk for middle-class children? It seems divisive to promote self-defence specifically for middle-class children, and I would expect children living in poorer areas would be more at risk.

    Thanks @aidan. I did get my membership confirmed last Friday and I've picked up my jersey. Didn't quite make out out to a club ride last weekend, partly because I discovered that my rear axle was broken so I had to buy a new wheel.

    Hello +Sir_Shannonball. Can you confirm my membership? I'd like to come on a ride this weekend.

    How do I go about getting my jersey?

    Thanks +Sir_Shannonball. I've joined the club.

    I claimed to already be a member on the BC purchase form since there didn't seem to be any other way to indicate that I want to join this club.

    Also I ticked both the 'medium' and 'large' boxes as I wasn't sure which jersey would fit me better.

    Hello Laura and Michool.

    I'm happy to wear a helmet on the club runs, but I wouldn't want to sign up to wear one every time I go out on my bike.

    My question was a bit more general, I also wanted to know if there were any other written rules I'd be expected to follow. I've read the Forum Conduct post.

    Is it possible to see a copy of the constitution?

    I've been out with the club three times now, and I think I will join.

    The first time I came on a club ride someone mentioned that they thought there was a rule requiring wearing a helmet. I haven't been able to find any club rules online though and if there are rules I'd like to be able to read them before I join.

    Does anyone have any information about this?

    Thanks,

    By the way does anyone have a map or gps trace of where we went? I'd quite like to look at the route.
