Re: 4 Day Norfolk Tour Recommendation

What do you want recommendations for places to see thing to do or routes. The north coast is nice but the roads are narrow and can be busy in holiday season. Sandringham and holkeham hall are good if you want upperclass history. Sea food is good, Cromer crabs arre a must if you like shell fish. Nice...

Re: A Test Ride. Is It Overrated?

I agree. All my bikes I bought by either siting on a quick round of the car park which proves very little.most bikes that are the right size the comfort can be dialled in. I’d say if you are radically changing the style of bike a test ride might be useful, to see if the style suits.

Re: Added memory eTrex 20

Just thought I'd give an idea of how much space is on my eTrex with one just 100 km route loaded. Of the 3.63 Gb total capacity the free space is 314 Mb. garmin.jpg Soothing is wrong there I’ve have had nearly a 1000 km on my 4Gb card the whole of the UK 2 different version of openstreet maps and t...

Re: HPV grasshopper rear wheel offset ?

No mention of offset in the manual that I can see. ftp://ftp.hpvelotechnik.com/anleitungen/HP_Velotechnik_manual_bikes_en.pdf I had come to the same conclusion. But thanks for looking Since My original post, I realised something was rubbing in first gear, not a gear I use day to day, this was the d...

Re: How to prepare for an organised EVENT (soon) from zero start?

there is for an unfit person a significant risk of death or disability from suddenly taking up exercise. Yes I know disabled riders, and my Fil cycles after 2 heart attacks but going from zero to 85 miles is not the smartest move for an over 60 First, we don't know anything about whether the OP is,...

Re: HPV grasshopper rear wheel offset ?

Thanks guys , Firstly I don’t think that there is an offset in the rear dropouts, Easily measured and I will check next time I take the wheel out, although the tyre seems to line up with the mudguard better now. My wheel is now centred to OLN, suppose it could have been centred on the Flanges, athou...

Re: Jihadi Brides and their Children.

Press reports say the child has been born. Does this child hold the nationality of the mother (British), father (Dutch) or place of birth? Again a real question because I do not know how these things work. None until it’s registered, but it potentially has the right to all 3, under international la...

Re: How to prepare for an organised EVENT (soon) from zero start?

It’s not recommended at any age to start out without knowing your fitness, anyone over 40 that has done little exercise, should seek medical advice before agreeing to ride a 85 mile sportive. The OP had problems riding a bike back from the shop that he intends to do an 85 mile. And I am guessing fr...

Re: How to prepare for an organised EVENT (soon) from zero start?

I am 62 and 16.5 stone. I have not ridden a bike in 40 years but am doing a charity bike ride from Canterbury to Menin Gate, Ypres (85 miles) on 23rd March. I picked up the bike today and was wobbly on the 1.5 miles home. I have such little time left- what do you advise for training for this event?...
