Wasn't there a Park Run at Kingsbury Water Park? Or am I dreaming ????

My best socks are the Aldi/Lidl ones that appear twice a year in their special buys. Usually about £3 a pair. I have a drawer full of them.



I have some Aldi that my sister bought me in 2008, they're a bit threadbare these days but if you can have favourite socks, it's those

I fancy some of that Erdinger Alkoholfrei at the feedstations. Go down a treat that would.

You're tone deaf. WTF makes you think doing Queen songs on karaoke in a pub over the canal an hour before Queen play is a good idea. Let me have my pint in peace.

Cycling in the ice

Depends, main roads may well be ok, rural ones mebbes not. I've walked my bike to the main road when the road outside has been icy. In snow I'd say the wider tyres are beneficial, on ice? Hmm. My car weighs over 1600kg,has four wide tyres and still slides on ice if I brake or steer in a cack handed way.

Personally I'd prefer two hours on the turbo and a shorter session than planned than two hours out of four on the road and the other two hours waiting at A&E for a broken bone to be treated. It's a personal judgement though, I can't judge your roads or your aversion to a broken bone. Whatever you do, enjoy it.

Just ordered a 920+HRM from a UK shop. The HK deal looked too good to be true. The UK shop had upto 3 years 0% finance, got the cash but a tenner a month instead of 380 up front leaves some money to spend at Rapha.

Angry, White and proud! On tv tonight..,

I'm just me, my race, age, religion, sexuality, gender, employment status etc and whether I am angry or not don't matter. In my opinion, the sooner we stop defining ourselves by these tags and accept that we are humans who want to be loved and respected and most of all we live and let others live, then the world will become a better place.


I sound like a Guardian columnist.

Anyone got an email address for RW admin?

Ask KK, she might have emailed them, something about receipts maybe?
