Re: Over exercise?

to drive to the gym to run or walk/ride on a machine :shock: . Drive to the gym? I presume you're being ironic, it's only motorists who do stuff like that :lol: It's a bit like those people who drive to the Lake District or Yorkshire Dales to go for a walk :roll: I didn't say I drove to the gym.

Re: Incorporating a frameless backpack?

cycling/hiking I'd put the kit in the panniers and tie/bungee/strap the empty backpack across them. + 1. It's the approach I take, though it's only really worked for shorter trips I.e. Long weekend in the Lakes, with a 25 litre rucksack strapped across the top. I've found the main issue is the weig...

Re: Over exercise?

+1! All-day rides in hot weather are very tiring, it is hard to drink enoughr I'd agree, still haven't found a satisfactory manner to improve rehydration - water, milk, diluted fruit juice (NB. Other than trying to max those forms of exercise where dehydration isn't a problem I.e. swimming :wink: )...

Re: Over exercise?

You know when you over exercise.Your body and mind tell you in many different ways.Learn them and listen to them and remember,"wasting time isn,t a waste of time" Perhaps, but the difficulty with that approach is that all exercise could seem to be too much! The only way to improve is to o...

Re: Fly time. Face covering to stop eating insects?

Change your mindset.....

Insects are an excellent source of protein, organic, free range, low in fat and with a wide variety of flavours. Merely try to avoid the ones that sting

Re: Travelling to road cycling

Unable to answer the questions because I cannot distinguish between "road cycling" and "cycle touring" (which is primarily on the road for me, yet includes some off road). Ditto. Perhaps I don't do "road cycling" because my bikes have mudguards ? At what point does &qu...

Re: The Bike Market. What happened.

Maybe it will become worse as things become ever more disposable. Plus the younger generations seeing disposing rather then fixing or riding an older model becoming the norm. It's already there with white goods and furniture. I've just seen a really nice Raleigh Airlite with carbon fork. The bike l...

Re: Cyclist blamed in cyclist-pedestrian collision

And the epidemic of smartphones, and people using them obliviously, is nowadays a constant menace. How many times have I encountered pedestrians utterly blind and deaf to anything happening around them, their entire attention focused on that beastly little rectangle of plastic! Love the bias in the...

Re: About bike shops for big people?

consciousness.... our consciousness? I did refer to conscious action rather than consciouness, which is of course a different concept. And referring to conscious action, suppose I've finished eating for the day having had a couple of Pain Au Chocolats. I wouldn't want to be an obese cyclist, having...

Only willpower will stop over eating,smoking or drug abuse,the right help may be needed but ultimately it's the person's want to stop and taking the next step to actually stopping that do...

Re: Things that make you disproportionately happy.

Hitting 38mph at 10.02 this morning, arriving for a freshly baked pain au chocolate at 10.04 (NB. End of ride) and arriving back home, literally 4-5 seconds before it began to rain. A great ride :wink: Did you weight that pain au chocolat and place it's colours on the Adobe colour space? Hopefully ...
