Re: Rosie Swales Pope MBE

Reached Shap Where is she now? She was spotted passing my road end one evening over a week ago so guessed she would be stopping at Beattock or Moffat. I was busy the next morning so didn’t get the bike out until the afternoon. I rode up to Crawford and there was no sign of her. Came back and crosse...

Re: Cycling after a vasectomy??

Can’t comment about cycling. The day after my vasectomy I was putting tups out to the ewes. Holding a Blackie tup, with huge horns, between my legs it was quite a nerve wracking day. :D Done under a GA back in those days I always believe I must have been done by a student. I had an embarrassing itch...

Re: Most Central Point

The Cranes decided where the Centre of the Earth was and cycled there.
I wonder where they would have ended up if they had had Google?
Google says the centre of Cornwall is Lanivet https://www.cornwalllive.com/news/cornw ... re-4614038

Re: Bailing out TFL and Pensioners

Imagine having to pay a basic rate of income tax of 35%. Do a quick calculation and see how much you are left with to spend. I don’t have to imagine it because it was a reality in the seventIes. But don't forget the cuts in the basic tax rate were accompanied by a doubling of Vat to 15% followed by...

Re: Bailing out TFL and Pensioners

People who've never worked and claimed benefits all their life's will still get free travel. I've always said they should pay income tax and national insurance on their benefits. That's a very silly idea really isn't it. So the state would give them money to then take some back? I am not sure if yo...

Re: Invisible indicators on new cars.

I agree but I’m not a good enough kenner of makes and models to decide which ones are the real offenders. I think the running lights outshine the indicator leaving you unsure until they’re right on you.
