I still use an ordnance survey map, and highlight in the roads I've been on, (newish to the area where I live ). To keep a vague track of my mileage, I measure out the twists and turns of the route with the edges of a piece of A4 when I get in .I think I first learnt to do this in the Air Cadets abo...

I use those cheap readers in a plastic case carried in my jersey pocket, an OS map tucked between the rivets of the long flap on me saddle bag. I think of looking at the map,think 'oh I'll look again after a few more miles', I do that, I'm normally proper lost by then, I quite like that. Mind you I ...
I've no doubt like any person who moves abroad, he will pay his local (US) income tax. This question might be better asked of certain Rock groups who register their affairs in places such as Holland whilst themselves being resident elsewhere, he's just doing what's best for his career and family.He ...

P1040904 (640x411).jpg I checked out the web site very interesting for you I think, run by experienced touring cyclists and stocks quite a few makes of bikes in different frame ...
I've only really started cycling regularly since I've retired, apart from cycling to work before.I've found that if I had the chance to go out and didn't take it at the end of the day I was looking back thinking, I should have gone out today and feeling fed up about it, like a day wasted sat indoors...
Axel Wow,...awed silence, I see you're from Leeds originally, if it's any consolation some of the 'builders' horrors, I've seen here are no better, the sign at the start of the post is not a million miles from Leeds.
NUke, that reminds me of something I saw in Hitchin Herts ,if you go down the hill past Harkness roses heading west toward the town on the A505, there are two suspiciously perfect fake Leylandii (?) made of plastic, they disguise mobile phone masts. It's on Google street view, worth a look, a lot of...
Cheers Mick excellent spot there ,I looked at it a for couple of minutes before I spotted the deliberate mistake, even after you put the correct one in.. Perhaps with these direction signs it's pure lateral thinking ?
