RE "GOGGLED BLIZZARDS." Sir,—I read with much amusement an effu- sion entitled, "Goggled Blizzards," in your estimable paper a fortnight ago; and though one of the motor cyclists who reside in the dis- trict, and therefore one of tho white sheep (by "McAdam's" kind permission), I feel I must point out one or two of the glaring mistakes made by your contributor. The first run from Doman Fawr to Newport, and back through Abergavenny, i? about the wors* I know, as a detour up bad hills has to be made to avoid Aberbeeg piich, and the road is extremely bad II right down to Newport, necessitating a very steady speed all the way.. It is no" a. good run from the speed point of view, and I don't sup- pose has been done once in a "blue moon" by motor tyclists. The second run, London to and fro, is 180 miles each way, necessitating being in the saddle nine hours each way at legal limit pace; yet from "McAdam's'' letter we can see the "human hurricane" reeling off the miles "independent of wind or weather," at a speed approaching that of that famous Newport to Paddington non-stop express. No, "Mc- Adam"; eighteen hours in the saddle is not relished even by "goggled blizzards," and is not a. favourite run by any means. I also notice it has "McAdam's" sad lot to render first-aid to children ("dear little toddlers," I have no doubt) who have been injured by cyclists—(not motor cyclists you will notice)—though these "human hurricanes" pass through 1,300 children "at a speed considered by safe judges to be dangerous to old and young. Finally, I think "McAdam's" nerves are out of order. I would suggest his seeing a doctor and having a rest cure. If, however, he tries his buckshot remedy, I have no doubt he will spend an enforced rest cure extending over months, years, or eternity depending upon the accuracy of his aim.—Yours truly, A. S. L.
