Could the header be made a bit smaller on the mobile view? Just thinking of those extra calories required to scroll down

Loving the new look

Re: And now for something completely different...

New header up so you can access all areas of the site now. In answer to some of your comments: The forum is now a fluid design to match the site. If you want a fixed width, reduce the width of your browsing window to suit your requirements. If you can't read anything just magnify your browser window...

Re: And now for something completely different...

The link behind the bear doesn't go to the home page but to the forum homepage. The forum facelift isn't quite finished. Tomorrow there will be a new header that matches the main site so you will see a full site menu. As for the whingers - the php version had to be upgraded, no choice in the matter...

Re: Anyone else only eat once a day?

I think that often or maybe sometimes, those who don't eat that much, don't have to. I'm no athlete but I can generally just keep churning it out with very little going in. Whenever I rode with Mike, I reckon he'd probably put away around 3 times the amount of food I would per day. So how many fags...

Re: BB200 2020

Just to clarify a few things. I'd hate for something said in jest on here to be taken as reality. This year, you will have from Oct 1st until Nov 1st to ride the route. Well that’s much better than this 24hours nonsense, might enter! The ride has to be completed in one attempt (as usual). The badge ...

All too often we get riders returning from events with wonderful tales of where they've been, or they would be wonderful if they could say the names of the places. Many years ago I found this website to be really helpful so thought I'd share it with those of you who want to be better at Welsh pronun...

Paving slab of chocolate chip banana loaf baked with the help of my 10 year old. All I've got to remember now is to bring it with me and not eat it on the drive down. Don't let your 10 year old down by eating it on the way. Just think of the moral standard you are setting your child if you do :wink...
