Re: OS bagging

Headed out for a 40 miler to see if I could find a "bolt" listed on the database near the cafe I'd decided to refuel at. The location is a bit vague, the area's been redevelopped and bolts aren't the easiest to spot; I didn't find it. The database said there was a flush bracket on the way,...

Re: A positive thread

Rode up into the smoke today. I'd been meaning to do it for a couple of years now but hadn't found the right opportunity.

Occasionally I get to feeling a little bored with my commuter, often when something nicer looking gets parked up at the same set of Sheffield stands and then I start searching ebay for something else. There's usually a hub-geared, hub-braked, flat-barred, 26" wheeled Pashley or two to catch my ...
