Re: Cambridge or Oxford, which do you prefer?

A couple of years ago i was led on a cycle trip round Oxford by our youngest daughter who was studying at Oxford Brookes. A really good afternoon early evening ride. Finishing at Mission Burrito down a little side street.

I've been having trouble with carb on my old landy, I recently replaced the fuel tank and every four or five weeks a jet blocks up. The crud that is coming into it clean metal looks like fine bits from grinding. It can only be from the new tank . Fitting an inline filter would require the feed from ...

Re: 1,600ft deep or more

I retired from the local caving in 2016 after 25 years had a great time working underground in the mines at Alderley Edge. In 1995 we found a pot of Roman coins in a mine shaft that we were making safe. Channel 4 have produced a series of programmes about historic cities, the first being Chester, to...

I also now carry a spare chain link, a chain tool, multi tool and a bit of old tyre to use as a tyre boot. Again, one of these for each seat pack. A bit of old tyre !!!! that's a...
