Bike stuff in Aldi

Wide caravans

Caravans seem to be very wide these days, much wider than the vehicles towing them hence a lot brush past with very little gap.

Re: Room 101

Iresponsable dog owners who allow their dogs to foul all over the place. Football teams in black away kit. Musclular, fake tanned cyclists in tight professional team kit that go snorting past. Horrible cheap bikes. All buy-to -let investors. Japanese knotweed. People selling bought in stuff from Chi...

Re: Three Word Story Game (again)

But what was the pixie's cosy little collection of hamsters actually doing? Their bulging cheeks contained lots of banana sundeas and mint choc chips with hundreds and thousands stuck to tiny strawberry trifles with loaded shotguns at the ready. But they loaded rice pudding and raspberry jam into a ...

Re: You're most unfavourite sky scraper

You're so right. The average architect cares little about the people who have to suffer their hideous monstrosities as they drive off to their converted barns in the countryside. Most architects prefer to focus on the childish histrionics and self-regarding largesse of those involved in the professi...

Favourite pier

The is Weston Super-mare pier in Somerset which was refurbished after it was destroyed in a fire a few years ago. There are a lot around the UK and my nearest one is at Aberystwyth. They are great pieces of Britains heritage and maybe they have them in other parts of the world. If you have any pictu...

Heritage railways

One could go on an interesting bike tour visiting all the heritage railways in the UK. They are nicely spaced out and in some beautiful locations. The picture shows two old British rail diesel engines at Swanage in Dorset.

Coastal path detouring

Here is my bike on the Cornish coastal path at a place called High Cliff about 4 miles north of Boscastle. If you have a lightweight bike without paniers that you can easily throw over stiles it is quite nice to detour along the cliff paths and coastal paths in the UK. It was very quiet here with no...

Interesting seats

Here is a bench that looks like it is made of bits of driftwood with oars for the arms. It may possibly be made of old wood boat. It is in Cornwall and can any of you guess exactly where? It has a wonderful eccentricty and Cornish charm about it
