Re: Acute Hip Pain

Good to hear that something is starting to get sorted. My sister-in-law developed the same condition after losing her husband. He had a prolonged difficult demise, which caused her unbelievable stress. After about two years, she lost all of the symptoms and is now back to her normal self. Try to kee...

Re: Any experiences of Nu-flex as a cyclepath surface ??

The only resonable alternative to the boardwalk would be to re-instate the tunnel through the rock that was deemed to be dangerous when the route was established.

Re: Any experiences of Nu-flex as a cyclepath surface ??

What I have been trying to elicit is whether that track, when it was in use, was of much use for utility purposes. Given the location, it would be reasonable to assume that the only likely utility use would be for residents of Thelkeld commuting into Keswick. Although that would mean first crossing...

Re: Broken shoulders!

Having looked at your x-ray and your slow recovery, I'm so pleased that I could opt for no surgery. Good luck for getting better as quickly as possible.

Re: A positive thread

3 good things on the Isle of Wight:- 1) seeing the staff at Morrisons present a large bunch of flowers to a gentleman who's wife was taken away by ambulance; 2) being given very adequate passing room and respect by all of the motorists who overtook me whilst cycling to and from the supermarket from ...

Agree, but it is causing a great deal of animosity, out of the "signed up to" joining requirements when all of us joined the Forum.

Re: New Bib Tights

Nice story Mick. Do you think that Plymouth Evans would notice if you wheeled out a new bike past their non-security system?
