Re: Aerodynamics - can cycling teach athletics a thing or tw

I agree that marketing plays a part in sprinters' display, but they wouldn't keep their hair loose if it did slow them down appreciably. For distance runners (800m and up) keeping hair out of eyes rathe...

Gretna to JoG avoiding A9 and A82

Any route advice for a trip from Gretna to John o' Groats, on road bikes with a support car, covering about 50 miles a day but avoiding the A9 and the A82 as far as possible?

Re: ... why cyclists wear sunglasses?

I bought a pair of glasses from Lidl for £5.99. After about a week the frame broke close to the nosepiece. Calculating, stupidly, that I could afford £5.99 I bought a second pair; the same thing happened again. With glasses as with bikes themselves there is a price point below which the product is n...
