Re: Diabetes NHS cost £10Billion, why no backing for cycling

(I'm not into "diets" so my comment on the quoted report might be mis-interpreted through lack of understanding but) some time ago the fasting diet thing seemed to become popular after TV presented made documentary extolling the health benefits (and it was free, no courses, no books to buy...

Very important question needs to be sorted before looking at bikes.

Re: Muscle Tiredness - Weird Experience

According to your thread you've been going through a stressful time recently ,I'd suggest tentatively that could have a lot to do with it. I suspect it does, I am generally run down (though recovering). It was just weird the way a rest made restarting harder for the next mile or so. I thought a res...

Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

Simply it does not It is equally unacceptable, i just await the same vitriol about the Olympics Start a thread about it and we can express our opinions there. This thread is about Royals and their flamboyant expensive weddings. Just because we are not criticising bankers, politicians, sportsmen, et...

Re: Muscle Tiredness - Weird Experience

King size Bonk! Low blood sugar levels will pretty much always have this effect. If you were already struggling before the ride you really were riding on empty. I think pretty much everyone who rides further than the corner shop has suffered at some time or other - I certainly have, only got home a...

Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

I disagree. Same conduct by anybody is unacceptable but this thread is about Royals NOT about bankers. Criticising one group does not mean that everybody else is exempt, it just means we are discussing one group. Don't know where you get the idea that criticising one group exempts all others. True ...

Re: a display solution?

Photograph them (digital) and get one of those digital photo frame things that displays each loaded picture for a set time then the next, etc. This sort of thing https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/cameras-and-camcorders/photography-accessories/digital-photo-frames/logik-l08dpf13-8-digital-photo-frame-bla...

You forget it is only the royals who are very, very naughty The same conduct by anyone else is simply inconvenient and therefore dismissed I disagree.

Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

I don't perceive e.g. the Olympics or the TdF as being the over-priviledged flaunting their fabulous wealth. Fabulous corruption, bankhanders, dodgy decisions, the pursuit of wealth, cheating and illegal or dubious drug taking though - sport ticks all those boxes. You forget it is only the royals w...

Muscle Tiredness - Weird Experience

Yesterday's ride and I was exhausted before I even set off out but sometimes I then pick-up energy, yesterday I didn't and it was a "plod". But also last half of the ride I had several phone calls (and personal situation such that I have to answer my phone). So stopped, spent a few minutes...
