Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi, Jacob Rees-Mogg said: 'It seems odd to have 'golden goodbyes' for people in a fixed-term job. It is another example of EU extravagance paid for in part by the British taxpayer. It's even more reason not to hand over the £39billion willy-nilly.' The man's a hypocrite. He's in a fixed term job wit...

Re: Team Sky is now Team INEOS

Hi, We all wish Froome good luck and speedy recovery. It could of been much worse for sure. They talk of broken bones, which is always headline grabbing fortunately no internal damage that we know of. From experience of waking up in intensive care several days after an accident then spending two wee...

Hi,
" Are my times average or good"
Your speed say yes, and without going further anyone would be happy with that.

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

He'll correct me if I'm entirely wrong. I can't because you could be right. I don't know. All seems fine and normal to me. When this photo was circulated around the family, it was the subject of much hilarity at my expense. I couldn't see the joke and I remember the time very well. I was out of ste...

Absolutely.

And a suggestion that if there are to be suspensions or bans, they would be better aimed at individuals than threads.

Pot and kettle :mrgreen:

Re: Are my times average or good

Hi, Ignore age on this chart, as its unlikely you hit your max on a ride, just select say 50 years at 100% for a guide and decide what training you want to aim for. I would ignore it but it's not on there :( I was just saying based on his readings that selecting 50 years on chart was close to his r...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi,
I am happy to carry on with the post :)

No one can predict which way or what happens next.
Maybe a mass protest will hold powers that be to book for half those who could be bothered to put their cross?

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Hi, So with Labour forgotten and Tories defeated who will the the remainers place their hope in next? I am happy with boris in charge though Javid looks a good second. Remainers think it's all over but it will be when we leave. No need for long drawn out posts and get slated by the soposid intellige...

Re: Are my times average or good

Hi, I think his mention of max might be what he saw on a ride? Meds may drive down or up heart rate. Seek advise on your riding from gp. Work on percentage of max (zones) for training. Work on zones and time, miles and heart rate are just specific to you and what terrain you are riding. Ignore age o...
