Re: 25mm Paselas.

I`ve never had any problem with Pasela 28mm and I`ve been using them for a number of years. In fact I`m just going to order some Pasela 32mm.

Re: NEW TOURING SHORTS

Re: Member Group Subscription.

As long as your a paid up member of the CTC you can ride with any CTC group and you don`t have to pay any other yearly sub. Some group may ask for a 50p per ride just to help out with their cost, but any other subs are voluntary.

Re: Do you live somewhere near OLD HARLOW?

Perhaps you could try the Harlow Museum they have a collection of old cycles, and if they can`t help then they may know someone who can.

What about the more traditional leather cycling shoe from Reynolds, they have a website and I`m sure a Google search will find it for you.

Yeah it was cold Christmas morning I had a short spin of around 15 miles, and I ran into a traffic jam as motorist were queuing up to get into our local Crematorium. The guy selling flowers was doing a roaring trade!
