Re: Three Word Story Game (again)

Extremely exciting events entertained Elinor, easily eschewing edible Escherichia collywobbles. "Imodium!!!!" cried Rennie Gaviscon, Andrew's leg fell off his piano and the resulting cacophony woke hairy Mary, Di Oralite was seen running away, followed by a baying mob of left luggage from ...

Re: Maximum speed on a Road Bike

I well remember following Mick F off the A30 towards Oakhampton 38mph down the slip road on the way to Betty Cottles
My fastest was 41 from the top of Woodead down towards Barnsly. The road had been resurfaced and was as smooth as a silkworms trump :lol:

Re: When I'm dead .........
