"It all hit me the minute that judge said them words and I saw my mum, my misses of three years break down in court. My mum was a strong woman and that was the first time I saw her cry out of pure love, she wasn’t mad, she wasn’t angry, she understood that times were hard." Sounds like cr...

Assos's chamois cream will sort you out. I won't ride far without it nowadays. Other brands work too but this one works best for me. There will be people along shortly who'll tell you there line there shorts with sand paper and sit on a perch carved from granite and have never need anything. But you...
