I am an american (according to bikeradar)

every time I log on the site tells me that 'based on my location' I should talk the americans. I am approximately in the centre of England and my ip is BT. Please tell it to stop.

    do you not get this?

    every time I come to the bikeradar site for several weeks now a pop-up appears saying ' based on your location you should be on the US version of bikeradar. tick the boxes to go there or stay here .' or words to that effect.
    There is nothing remotely american about me or my internet connection which is BT broadband.

    Am I alone in getting this strange instruction ?

    It's not perfect and we're working on a better solution.

    I had this a few months ago. Then it went away. Now it's come back! I have set the currency to GBP but every time I go to the home page it comes up. Not the end of the world, but annoying.
