Re: Bivvy a Month 2024

Cheers, Pete. I am glad I did it and just need to keep it going. I have a few longer distance trips planned with a trip to Scotland too, so I'm hoping that'll give me some momentum. The number of times I've woken up with a start thinking someone is shinning a torch in my face only to realise the clo...

Re: Fat Fighters '24. The year for deflation!

You obviously need to give it a good rest and pretty much ignore the weigh ins for now. No point in beating yourself up about it.

Never give in...like NEVER!

Re: Fat Fighters '24. The year for deflation!

Also didn't weigh this week. Had most of the week off and spent a few days eating deep fried battered haggis with wild abandon. I knew what the outcome was going to be. We go again from tomorrow.

Re: Who'd have thunk it, an interesting article on Road.cc?

I'm planning the same thing. Pick an appealing gig in Amsterdam, head to Harwich, cycle to Amsterdam, have a couple of days cycling around the city, see the sites, see the gig and cycle back to the ferry. Don't know when it'll be, but hopefully this year

Fitted new mudguards to my Tempest. Made a pigs ear of it to begin with but managed to fix it. Just need to trim stays and check it over.

Re: The post man's been ...

Posted via the LBS...a set of SKS Bluemels mudguards that have been on order for about 3 months. Finally arrived.

Also picked up a new set of schwalbe tyres to fit to a 2nd hand Islabike I've bought for my daughter. Yet to pick it up but I'll be able to pimp it up before she gets it.

Visions of Dave heading down to his allotment for a quiet morning indulging his new pipe smoking routine, only to be confronted by Reg and a merry band of BAMmers nestled in the potting shed. I’ve filled it full of manure to fend off the BAMers Like that will stop 'em https://lh3.googleusercontent....

Good suggestion, Phil. I keep meaning to sort out a base for mine but never got round to it. That's an easy to sort solution. :-bd

Re: Yay, it's cheery Friday.

I saw that and some of the responses about how you can't have sweet things on a cooked English. Now, I'd argue against that. Ketchup anybody? I wouldn't add pineapple but I am partial to a meaty pizza with added pineapple. I know, put me up against the wall. My main point of posting was to describe ...
