Re: Aldi - did anyone buy the kit last week?

Yeah, it was a bit pricey at £13.99 each, and that isn't a pair. Its for one of bottoms or top!

Wiggle do a twin pack deal at £30 so, saved £8 getting 2 pairs.

Bought 2 sets of base layers. Fits fine with a large, nice and snug. Thought it wasn't going to fit with it been "compression" as them never do.

Re: Help with a cycling based dissertation

Done.

MAMIL for me, is just a funny term some people like to call themselves or a group of people. Normally associated with road cycling i would think.

Lycra is good, easy to wash and dry. Its snug and keeps you warm.

Re: Steep descents

Try 42mph down into Gunnislake on a Raleigh Chopper. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JP_3OfVQjF0 Just watched this and thought why did you have to brake at them points on the road? Its not even a corner. Obviously i dont know how a chopper handles at speed, so im not sure if it wobbles at them speeds!

Re: My LEJoG starting July 4th

Nice routes.

Your brave adventuring up The Struggle, 20% gradients for much of the way and very tough going especially after breakfast!

Beautiful around there though, so it'll be worth it. Hope the weather is kind!
