Re: Hot food on rides...

With a traditional Carradice saddle bag on each bike, hubby and I always take hot drinks and these days flask with food. Everything fits in the saddle bag.

Even in summer and “normal” times we often take picnics especially when we out for day rides -50+.miles.

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

Cugel Totally agree, sometimes I weep for mine and others grandchildren of this world. Just passed 70 and love life but also very aware of the cost. I’ve lived a fairly frugal life, small house, small car, my bike but others will pay the cost of our lives. We can plead innocence of outcomes for awhi...

Re: What gives energy? What costs energy?

I gain the different types of energy from various activities although I guess they all feed into one. Emotional and mental energy comes from silence and meditation which then feeds into physical energy. Watching the Welsh rugby team play creates massive adrenaline for me also! I listen to motivation...

Re: Two favourite poems.

As an exile from Carmarthenshire thanks for reminding me about Dydd, Santes Dwynwen.

Re: Introductions - tell us about yourself

Hi everyone I don’t often see many female comments on here but thought I’d add to this long thread. I’ve cycled for as long as I can remember, my wheels are part of my body I think! On my 65th birthday I set myself the challenge of cycling 10k miles by my 70th and as if 7th October 2019 I hit 12,250...

Re: Asthma Inhalers

Hi Mick. I was transferred to Fostair about a year ago and it has transformed my control of asthma. I have to take 3x2 puffs a day but that’s fine because it means I don’t need the Ventolin. It’s supposed to give 120 inhalations but I find I get much more than that. I’m happy to have transferred to ...

Re: One of those days! Tired! Tired! Tired!

Hello Cyril Haearn

That’s my normal waking and rising time. Best time for yoga, indoor bike, bit of silence, then coffee and breakfast about 90 minutes later.
Mind you I’m normally in bed by 21:00!

Re: Why Couldnt the Red Brick Wall stand Corbyn?

As a Welsh coal miners daughter with an MA and now a retired headteacher I was shocked yesterday at reading of people who had stood on the picket lines with me in the miners strikes saying they had no choice but to vote for Boris. Of course they had a choice! One woman said she felt a traitor having...

Re: A nation of hypochondriacs?

Hi Cugel

Couldn’t agree more about the ‘fairy cakes’. For us it’s most likely to be a thick slice of fruit and nut cake......plenty around now with Christmas on the horizon.

Re: A nation of hypochondriacs?

Hi Mike, in answer to your question what’s the 5% non vegan

I’m vegan in everything except on a long ride when the only cake shop we can find is non vegan. Hubby is vegan at home but eats fish or meat when out for a sit down meal. Hope this clarifies for you.
