I had a former next door neighbour who had one that he called a Copenhagen Pedersen. It was quite shabby but he cycled everywhere on it dressed in a long black coat and a bowler hat. I rode up the road and back on it once. It was the most awkward time I’ve ever spent on a bike

Years ago, before energy bars and gels were invented, I used to take peanut butter and honey sandwiches on Audax rides. One of those was good for a few miles, although you had to keep them well wrapped or they’d make a mess in your saddle bag

I’ve had similar for a number of years. It’s not exactly painful, but I’m aware of it after a couple of hours riding. I went to the Dr when it first appeared and he advised it was nothing serious, but unfortunately would not go away. I actually got a second opinion from another Dr in the same practi...

I have recently joined the ebike brigade, having bought a Ribble CGR using their bike builder system. The whole process of speccing up the bike to my exact requirements was a big plus. I’ve only had the bike for a couple of weeks, but have used it almost every day for my permitted exercise during th...

We were walking around the town centre circuit today, and on the finish line at the end. Many of the riders looked totally wrecked, some having to be helped back to the team coaches with the appearance of hypothermia. A truly epic race, with the majority abandoning before the finish.
Yes, it’s more creeping privatisation of health care. I have to have my ears cleared of wax every few months. As a result of this new NHS policy I had to visit Specsavers at a cost of £35 per ear. They do use better equipment though, vacuum instead of a water jet.

I never warn a law breaking driver of a speed camera van. I do often flash my lights or make a slow down gesture if they are clearly over the limit and there is no camera ahead.
Lib Dems gain hundreds of seats. Tories and Labour suffer huge losses. Brandon Lewis's takeaway is 'voters just want brexit done'. John McDonnell's takeaway is 'Brexit - sort it'. Words fail me...

We often go to Bath as we live quite close. We park in Batheaston free car park and walk in to the centre via Bailbrook or the K&A towpath. It makes a nice circular walk. Either that or take bikes on the rack and do it that way.
