Ah, sense of something at last in the immediate last two posts. Putting a large spittoon on my handlebars for next journey and another on the floor next the turbo. Durst not try it by the rollers; balance already precarious
I’m starting to get a righteous picture here: a small change of thought perhaps for you all! My dad contracted TB in his late teens and went into isolation. Came out after several months and was quite healthy until WW2. Volunteered straight away but essentially should have been rejected. Posted to J...
Quotation from Carlton Green,“ Because I’m not vulnerable I’ll cycle alone, but I have no doubt that there definitely are circumstances where the greater good is served by riders having a safe distance buddy. In life there are always instances where we focus so hard on avoiding one hazard that we fa...
Look carefully at some cycling club guidelines; they’re not so specific folks. It’s bad enough having to take turns in the turbo with my non cycling wife. Saddle swap and height change forced me to buy a new seat post
Ok having been splattered on my thread re Spitting, I’ll raise another issue. Government guidelines say not to ride unless it’s with someone in your own household. On two club sites, the current suggestion is find a buddy to ride with. Am I right to be concerned?
Wow a different turn. Went out after posting this original thread start, to return to the replies and find I’m a pariah. Ride today was not strenuous but spotted a lot of kitted out cyclists but not in club gear. Lot of spitting at the top of Westow Hill as they recovered from that beastly ascent. N...
Ok, spitting is not necessarily high etiquette in social circumstances but when cycling, it is necessary. However, is the consensus that you shouldn’t in these days of Covid 19? Must say, after a real slog, I can’t see how it can be curbed. Obviously cycling alone there’s no whip back effect on othe...
Ok got my usual nagging urge to travel this late spring. Also, I have my usual doubts about lugging my bike by plane or train across Europe. Is it possible to hire a reasonably decent ]bike from Thionville then cycle to Koblenz where I could leave it ie like a one way car hire? Thanks

I don’t train and cycle commute but I think the idea of leaving a cheap bike at Paddington overnight is probably the easiest. Whatever you spend on a cheap hack from a knacker’s yard ( sorry, police pound resale centre) will save the worry over a new, highly filchable Brompton.
The routes are much more limited these days. I guess it's take up pressure. Wanted to use Med B to access Moselle but the option has gone. Good luck to the company who provide a good service on Med A and Atlantic routes.

Dries, I am thinking of the South out of London routes I take. I live in Forest Hill but can’t help on accommodation, sorry. Here are a few of the trips I have made and recommend. Something to see/do, somewhere to eat/drink and access to trains via Greenwich, Bromley or Lewisham. Right, someone sugg...
