Re: A little rant .

I'm 5' 10" with a very long inside leg measurement for my height, (no double entendre intended :wink: ). I have to get my frames custom built if I want to be comfortable, so I tend to keep them for a long time.

Re: Eddie Izzard

Cycling will always involve some freewheeling, thank goodness. Running on the other hand, up OR down, requires constant effort.
I know which I find most enjoyable!

Re: Eddie Izzard

I always believed that cycling enabled you to travel twice the distance for half the effort of walking, or something similar.
I simply cannot imagine the effort involved in running that many marathons in the time frame he had. The man is a star!

I would have thought the forks and the front mudguard digging into the tarmac would have slowed you down quite well!

Re: cycling gets more popular, the critics get louder...

Three years ago, my son was nearly killed by a motorist who mounted the pavement at speed. He sustained a broken jaw, cheekbone, eye socket, legs, ankle, elbow and skull. His nose was partially torn from his face, his cheek was ripped open from his mouth to his ear, he lost 6 teeth and his calf musc...

Re: Other transport

How many of us have alternate forms of transport? I would assume we all have bikes, some have more than one, some may be vintage? Ordinary's unicycles, tandems (as opposed to a daily commuter) motor bikes, kit cars, historic vehicles etc. I for one have a 1964 SWB landrover, we've had it since Sept...

What Line in a Song........

do you find most relevant to your life? As an old wrinkly, I have had the fortune/misfortune to work in a variety of companies, and the line that keeps popping into my head is from "Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who. The line is at the end and is " Meet the new boss, same as the old ...

Re: Nick Names

My youngest daughter used to have a boyfriend whose nickname was "Foal", I always wondered why. After they split up she told me it was because his Mum looked like a horse, a bit like "Trigger" in "Only Fools".

Re: Manx Cat....

With all the hooha there has been following her withdrawal from the forum, I think it has made it even more difficult for her to return.
Is it not time to leave the poor woman alone, even if everyone has the best intentions.
