Re: Giro d'Italia

A velcro front full length jacket is harder to do up than a zip. It didn't go unnoticed (by me at least)that both INEOS riders found it easy to ride no hands and zip up their jackets than either Sunweb rider,better bike steering geometry or better easier zips perhaps? Maybe one of the small details...

Re: Can anyone help to identify this please

You could choose one from several locations such as Brown Willy, Dozemary pool or Altarnun. Lanivet is supposedly the geographic centre but no idea how that was arrived at. Did you visit the cross in the graveyard when you compiled your tour of parish churches. You could plan a ride visiting the hig...

Mrs Rjb is an occasional visitor there when we have a day out to visit Dunster Castle. (NT). I bring a large rucksack to carry our picnic then after lunch her s...
