Re: Scary things

When it passed I saw what it had happened - it was a K-reg Renault full of youths, and as such, the engine noise when revved is rather less refined than a more modern vehicle.

Re: Football Bores

Okay, I have a confession...I am a footieholic. I sleep, eat, drink, watch, play and talk football. What a bore :wink: :D Me too. The thing that really makes me laugh is the general thought on this thread, of the "Tribal Football Fan" being an oaf whilst spouting how much better us cyclis...

Re: JOGLE June/July 2011

I'm bumping this just in case someone spots a glaring error! As I said in my OP, daily destinations are set as accommodation’s booked, but I'll change the daily route if you say that I'm going down a farm lane (we are on road bikes) or crossing a motorway etc. I've lived with this for just under a y...

Re: Bike racks

I can't help specifically, but we have a tow-bar mounted rack. Perfect and easy to use, with the advantage of being able to go on any subsequent cars we may own as we will always want a tow-bar on any car. Have you thought of one? Here's the one we bought: http://www.leisureshack.co.uk/thule-9502-r...
