Re: Wayfarer Centenary Weekend 29-31 March 2019

I shall look forward to this weekend. My first crossing of 'The Wayfarer' was in the mid '60's when I joined my local cycling club. This ride was always done between November and March, after the racing season had finished. We all had saddlebags, lights, mudguards, 27- 11/4 tyres, sandwiches and dri...

Re: Your Favourite Saddle

Selle San Marco Rolls on all my bikes. Trusted by cyclists for many, many years, at all levels. I have never used a more comfortable saddle over the many years I have been riding.

Re: Posterior Vitreous Detachment, (PVD)

UPDATE. I have just returned from visiting the optician who did my initial examination to clarify my situation regarding whether to cycle or not. I asked if it was OK to cycle with my friends on the road on hilly and strenuous rides. Can I train on my Tacx Flow in the house ? She said 'Yes, go off a...

Re: Posterior Vitreous Detachment, (PVD)

I would like to thank-you all so much for your replies. Regarding your questions, brynpoeth : The vitreous will not reattach and there is no operation or treatment for it after 6 weeks. It is a natural process and over 75 per cent of people over 65 will develop PVD. It is possible to remove the vitr...

Posterior Vitreous Detachment, (PVD)

I have very recently been diagnosed with PVD following an episode of bright flashes in my peripheral vision, plus new floaters. I was informed that for the next 6 weeks I must not take part in contact sports such as rugby, martial arts, boxing. Inverted positions such as in yoga or pilates. Very hea...

That is very encouraging to hear, Al. It gives me some hope after the surgeon's words.

Bennett fracture

Two weeks ago I had a motorcycle accident and sustained rib, leg, and hand injuries. I had immediate surgery to a displaced intra-articular fracture to the first metacarpal, right thumb, where K-wires were inserted. The surgeon told me that it was a serious injury and that I may not be able to ride ...
