Re: ... and so it continues.

I was on Dartmoor walking at the weekend. Anything 500m from a car park is a disaster area of litter, idiots, dog sub standard, moaning kids, and overloud bluetooth speakers. The roads are rammed with dickheads as well. Normally Spain provides a wonderful creche service for us and handles these tw6t...

Re: GBDuro Starts Tomorrow 1st August 8am

There is not one stream in the south of England that I would ever consider drinking from even with treatment. Genuinely curious why? My water at home comes from a steam (river) and is treated (by Southern Water) and is much safer than say bottled water brought from a shop. Because it is full of guf...

Re: GBDuro Starts Tomorrow 1st August 8am

Does it look like 14 dehydrated meals would fit in each bag? The bags look like Alpkit Airlok Extra 13 litre, so probably. He also has a cook kit and long Ti spork to reach the bottom of the packs so it seems Kosher (maybe not the food :wink: ) Water is obtained from streams and, I assume, publicly...

Re: Free bike service

I want to build an app that connects new cyclists with old hands who can help them repair bikes, offer route advice and generally be eased into it.

Please get me some funding

Re: Free bike service

I've managed to get hold of a few of these so if anyone missed out I'll pass them on for £20 each before they go on fleabay. You'll still be making a saving of £30 so I reckon that's a good price.

Re: Free bike service

I just think it is a great way of encouraging new cyclists. I’ve fixed up several bikes for returning riders during lock down. There are only 50k vouchers going out tonight so let the returning riders have them. The lbs gets a NEW customer to boot and sells them an upgrade.

Can I plead that you only use this if you have to.

We are all cycling converts and this is meant to get those not currently riding out there.

Re: Powdered Drink Mix

It wasnt the powdered fire juice drinks you are thinking if? Birds Apeel was the one we sometimes had - not fizzy but had a sherbet type zing to it. Kellogs also did more flavours of their version Rise and Shine I have find memories - but I'm sure it would actually be dreadful to have it now Birds ...
