Re: Bicycle Shop in Kalyves

I think it's the same one Filippos described second, Danny. It's called Ποδηλατοδρόμιο. Doesn't look like they have a web site.

Re: Sun Umbrella/Parasol

I think SImple City at Mournies, just off the National Highway sell some decent ones. Also Diafono opposite AB on the Kissamos road seem to have quite big ones, e.g. the cantilever type. I'm not sure if either of them will have them in yet.

Re: Bicycle Shop in Kalyves

As an afterthought, if you have a particular make and model in mind you could try putting it into the search bar on Scrooge . It would allow you to compare if it is cheaper to buy in the UK and ship or buy here. It would also allow you to decide how the price you are being asked compares with other ...

Re: Bicycle Shop in Kalyves

Two shops to add to Filippos' suggestions, both on the Kissamos road out of Chania: The first Antonis Bike Shop is on the left hand side shortly after where the one way system ends. It's opposite a small garden café. If you get as far as the small garden centre you've gone past it. They do servicing...

Good job it wasn't Ryanair. They charge extra for excursions.

Fancy a Holiday?

If anybody was considering taking a holiday in Turkey I would suggest avoiding Pegasus Airlines?

Re: "General Error"

Everybody. Carol has tried to fix it but it looks like it is a problem with the server. Presumably Yahoo will sort it out in their own good time.

Re: Heating oil price

Where is the evidence that the cost of refining or the cost of distribution has "changed" and by how much between January 2017 and January 2018? Please supply a link.

Re: Heating oil price

You do understand what the word "Change" means Mouche? Do you have any evidence that the cost of refining, cost of transportation (sea, land, oilpipe) have "changed" since last year? Yes supply/demand influences price. What do you think is causing the "change" in the pr...

Re: Heating oil price

It has a lower tax than vehicle diesel so in a sense it is "subsidised". A few years ago the tax rate was increased to be closer to, but still less than, the rate for vehicle diesel but I don't think there have been any recent increases in the tax rate. Changes in price are purely being dr...

Re: Heating oil price

The cheapest I can see it around Chania is €1.00 at the BP station at Παπαναστασίου 184, Χανιά 2821041910. The dearest seems to be around €1.07. I don't think it is anything to do with subsidies. Brent crude was around $55 per barrel this time last year. Now it is closer to $70. I am, surprised it i...

Re: email and new router problem

I'm not completely sure that it is a good idea to change the router internal settings. As far as I can see the new Speedport Entry 2i seems to use a different log in to your normal user-name and password. For example mine is set to the generic user-name otenet@otenet.gr and you can't see what the pa...

Re: Kalamata to Kissamos Ferry

It's also worth noting that: 1 Patras to Gytheio is a longer drive, both in distance and time, than Patras to Piraeus on significantly worse roads. 2 The ferries from Ancona, Bari and Brindisi all arrive in Patras in the early afternoon leaving time to drive to Piraeus, should be no more than 3 hour...

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

Three friends and I renewed our IKA books at the office on the Souda Road, Chania this morning. Arrived 9:30. Tickets were about 20 past the one being shown. Left at 11:15 so 1 hour 45 minutes. We had all completed the legal declaration form in advance so we only had to sign it. We had also taken ph...
