Re: The 7 Mile Itch (another Strictly Local ride)

Really excellent. Some good pics there and little nuggets of info. I think we're beginning to get a real urban appreciation Thing going recently. Not everyone's cup of rosy lee but there's a lot of interesting stuff to stumble across.

Re: The return of a classic - pop up T shirt shop.

I've squared it with myself. I've bought one. When it arrives I'll put it on and immediately nip out for a Puddle Pootle just to make sure. i'm still a bit concerned about the puddle though. It would seem that it has to be static (otherwise it might be a 'pool'?): "A puddle is a small accumulation o...

Re: The return of a classic - pop up T shirt shop.

Fantastic. But...Arg. I've ticked all those off except for the puddle quaffing. So in order to qualify I need to go and drink a puddle! I've managed rivers, streams, strange taps, ponds, 'small ponds', but not an official 'puddle' yet. At least I don't think so. Maybe I have without realising it. I'...

junction 12 of the M1
I feel bound to point out that this is my most hated road junction in the country - the layout of it, not the usage of it. It's totally over-the-top for its function. I'm sure everyone has theirs :wink: . I think I might take some rotten eggs to throw at it.

Rather than at the "happily covered in cow slurry" post-ride stage, this time you join us at the "meticulous planning" stage. I know, We Don't Do Planning Here, but in this rare case it's essential to the enterprise. We have to visit our Northern, and final, GR this time: someone's front garden near...
