Re: Dead cleats?

I say there's at least one more ride in those cleats - to the Shimano shoes graveyard!

Re: Best time for LeJog

I'm hoping for at least dry weather. I've cycled through Lake District into Scotland last year, as far as Fort William and I got mostly very dry and bright overcast days from around end June to mid July.

Re: Iain's 2019 LeJog

I have booked about 70% of my lodgings via Airbnb. I've only had good experiences with them, and I've been able to get individual apartments or houses for me and my partner for roughly the same price as a night for two in the YHA or independent hostel. All the comfort of home for around £40 a night.

I've been to this a few times before. But usually advertising till the last minute. But it's been a fixture for over 30 years now. Some great characters at it

Re: my weight

Most big box road bike makers have suggested limits of 120kg. But thr bikes and the wheels can usually handle much more than that. I think you're weight is quite fine, for good quality road bike.

Re: Who are the best/worst drivers on the road?

Agree with the above, horse box drivers are nice concerned with the condition of their contents than other road users

Re: Mick F route fast but safe.

A rear mudguard or crud catcher is essential. I can live without a front
