Re: A positive thread

Box of bits arrived from Chain Reation today. With a bit of luck they'll cure the horrendous clunks, groans and assorted grating noises coming from my commuter's transmission. More likely I'm going to need to swap out the freehub.

Re: Churches - interesting

Can I ask more about the second? From a time when people with a claim to fame chose to record it in stone after their death.

Re: Kent Traffic Free Routes?

Zero cars, very limited options. Largely traffic free, a few to choose from. Of course it depends how you're travelling to Kent. If your aversion to cars is so great that you won't travel to Kent in one and need to start and finish at a station both lists get shorter. How far do you expect to cycle ...

Bear in mind, however, that other organisations may require riders to use certain items of clothing and equipment: but it is not up to Ride Leaders to promote o...
