Re: Cycling (and other) plans 2020

Would like to retire but I doubt it will happen unless I have a Lottery win.When I was 16 I'd set 50 as the age to retire,well that's gone and 55 doesn't loo...

I was born raised in a mining village in Rotherham,South Yorkshire. moved to Sheffield in 1990 aged 22 and although moving around in t...

Re: How was Cycling 2019 for you?

I’m well down on the last couple of year’s mileages. But that was deliberate. https://i.imgur.com/mFnvRU4.jpg I’ve enjoyed it a bit lot more though. 177 miles on one 13 hour ride in Winter? You aren't the bloke on Bikeradar(Milemuncher)who was called out for recording rides on 2 or 3 devices to boo...

Re: Room temperatures

I find we're earlier to bed in winter, around 10pm, so our heating needs are quite frugal. If we weren't south facing I daresay it would be a lot chillier. 10pm :shock: Don’t think I’ve ever “been to bed” before midnight. If I went to bed at 10pm I’d be up at 2am :lol: Very rare I go before 1am-ish...
