Re: Forestry operations on rights of way

I believe it’s owned by NRW. Common sense did prevail, they were working 100m away from the track and I cycled along the path that the banksman suggested would keep me away from any operations (after he’d told me I couldn’t as an opening gambit). Thanks for the feedback, will see whether I can find ...

Forestry operations on rights of way

A couple of the local trails I ride are bridleways through land that is currently being logged. Today I encountered forestry operations and was told I could not pass along the bridleway.

Thanks for the feedback- sounds like it’s the way to go. It’ll have to wait for a sunny day next year, stinking the house out with white spirit would not make for a happy lockdown

I have seen this http://jwbasecamp.com/Articles/Silnylon1/index.html#Description It’s basically painting both sides with a 3:1 mix white spirit to silicone sealant.

Re: Wahoo Customer Service...

I had really good customer service from them too, replacing a unit when battery life started to be an issue. Felt bad doing the ‘home destroy’ on the unit which is breaking it with a screwdriver.

I have some spare mounts if you want them Shaf

Tenn Outdoor waterproof shorts Large

Tenn Outdoors waterproof shorts, size Large. Never used since the legs are too tight on me. They were bought for me as a gift which made it impossible to return them through their convoluted returns process so they’ve sat in a box for couple of years.
