The good old days

my view is to take all the labels off and let Darwin decide !

Risk assessment is one of the key skills you learn in life and take that away and you end up spiralling in to the nanny \ compensation cutlure state we are currently heading too.

One of my greatness moments as a child was being 'the kid' who climbed up the tree to hang the rope on an outlying branch to make a great slang. Hadn't gotten to do physics or biology in school at that point, so didn't quite appreciate the effect a thick horse hair rope would have on human skin, so after attaching said rop, took easy option to descend and slid down it .. cue afternoon in A&E and a few weeks with both hands in bandages!!

Effing, I had awful problems trying to get my 310XT to sync to Garmin Express for a couple of weeks, then upgraded to newest version of Garmin Express, re-synced it, and fingers crossed seems to be working ok now.

Nice one Hof bear! I'll get booked soon....on the subject of hotels, this may seem like a dumb question but what happens with bikes overnight?

If you need to stay in a hotel with a bike just casually walk up to your room with it. Done that a few times now and never been stopped yet. Most hotel's are cool with it anyway.

Just for clarification here Cake, 'bike' is not a euphemism right ?

Muttley, if you are still having 'problems', maybe you could ask these to help ?

We had some a week or so ago, but unfortunately its still too early and we haven't had a decent frost yet to set the real flavour in, so they weren't that great. 

Bring on the ice I say !!

Thanks Glasslegs, like the look and idea behind that Air Rush thingy ...

Smiff Too, do you know if there is a 'standard' size refill for both fitting and capacity ?

Just been looking at the CO2 canisters for re-inflating a tube after a puncture.

Are they any good, or is it best to get a mini pump for taking with spares on a long ride ?


Anyone know anything about heating systems?

After our last 'visit' from British Gas, our dogs are now trained to attack on sight of their logo!
