I found Chester to be an absolute gem. The city might be small but if you want some excitement Liverpool and Manchester are only a short drive away.

>After London

Give the place a good wash first and we will talk. Seriously even in the better parts everything is covered in a disgusting film of grime like one day hundreds of years ago the city forgot to wash the dishes and things just got out of hand.

Don't get me started on the fucking cyclists:

I really like Leeds and Sheffield, it seems that places with higher student populations tend to have a good variety of things to do. The only drawback is that a higher proportion of the student demographic, as opposed to non-students, are total bellends.

Just like any other place, there are ropey sink estates, poverty and immigrant ghettoes etc. which London is especially bad for. You just have to take the rough with the smooth I suppose.

The evidence that cyclists treat the road like people in cars should give them more space than they do other people in cars, because it's not as though they need to make themselves more obvious in order to avoid being hurt. Get clipped by a car when you're in a car or on a bike, same thing right? Same damage.

I don't even cycle but this whole 'murrrr cyclists are so shit' schtick is irritating.

Cyclists may or may not be an arrogant bunch, but they're overwhelmingly not riding recklessly or dangerously. Drivers are at fault in the vast majority of car vs bicycle collisions.

I don't know about Sheffield. The place is mostly okay BUT the small population of dickheads over the past few years have become so unbearably intense that it ruins the city for everyone and this is without getting into the explosion of drug addiction that has made the sight of discarded needles depressingly common.

It's not like the east midlands where everyone is a dickhead, it's like a good city fell into terminal decline 10 years ago and nobody knows how to fix it.

It seems the report is less than clear on this?

At any rate Monkey Dust did a thing on them which is a better use of all of our time:

Maybe we could have a special bicycle tax and the money can be used to pay for bike roads so the two groups can be kept separate. Or we could use the money to level London and try again like in Sim City.

We could do with investment in more and better training, which should at least do away with the schoolboy accidents like cyclists riding up the side of buses and lorries. Strictly speaking, any left hook is technically a violation of right of way by the cyclist though I'm sure we can agree that in the case of a normal car the driver is the one being careless.

I'd buy into enforcing some sort of license for using public roads. It seems to me the only reason we haven't already made such things mandatory is because cyclists tend to kill themselves rather than other members of the public.

Might encourage the reckless and arrogant ones to be more considerate if there is a real chance they could be banned from cycling.

Cyclists also don't generally cause traffic jams or cause anything like the amount of wear and tear to the roads or level of air pollution that cars do. I suppose you could charge them a proportional amount, but you might end up spending more on paperwork than you bring in.

I'm not sure why that's relevant, because that's not the reason we license drivers and cars.

Road tax doesn't go into repairing the amount of wear and tear or pollution that cars cause. They are there because its a simple way of raising tax and discouraging people from using that resource profligately. Very few taxes in the UK are hypothecated.

The evidence is fairly clear that the licensing of pedal cyclists would be pointlessly onerous. There's about an equally strong case for licensing pedestrians. Not a single motorist was killed by a cyclist last year and slightly more than 1% of pedestrian fatalities involved a cyclist.

Dangerous or reckless cycling is already an offence under the Road Traffic Act, as is cycling under the influence of drugs or alcohol. I can't find any official statistics on the number of prosecutions, but they appear to be negligible.

If you think the point of requiring cyclists to be competent is to protect motorists, then you seriously need your fucking head checked.

>and slightly more than 1% of pedestrian fatalities involved a cyclist.
I'm sure Danny's mum will take some comfort in knowing that the preventable accident that killed him was caused by a minority player in the whole killing pedestrians game.

Fuck it, let's ban bikes and motorbikes and cars and baths and tables with pointy corners. Let's ban metal cutlery and hot liquids and solid food. Keep little Danny locked up in a padded cell, sustained on a diet of tepid gruel. You can't put a price on safety, after all.

Chester looks traditionally nice, trees, rivers and classical British architecture. Got some great views, but it's basically a big town. One of those cities that is a city by technicality rather than population. The whole cathedral thing.

You'll meet a lot of middle class softies here, nice people and all, but they treat weed like it's heroin, bitch about one another a lot, generally they can come across as a bit snobbish.

I've lived in both the "bad" areas of Chester, and they've been better than any place I've lived previously.

Expensive as shit though. And there's the student masses as well.

All of our cities are cities by technicality. There's no such thing as a city by population in the UK. Lots of big places haven't been made cities, and lots of small places have, even in recent years.
