I am getting ready for our Moon Ride: (at present) it's dry and non-icy, and our proposed route manages to avoid the coupla hundred or so flood warnings in the region. It is, however, very cold.

Check list: lights, water, banana, 26 hi-viz vests, red lipstick.

I shall have a go at 'riding languidly' - I shall report back .... although I think I might have be in a county other than Devon. Or does anyone think it's possible to do 'languid' whilst climbing? I'm not sure "languid" is the right word (meanings include listless and lacking in spirit, ...

I hope you all feel better soon. There is, as they say, a lot of it about. I have managed to avoid it thus far. (You have no idea how difficult it is typing this with my fingers crossed!)

But, my poor husband had 8 days of feeling grim, and still feels very worn out.

Bikes feature in Observer 'Woman' Magazine Fashion Awards

It may seem a bit cheeky to consider this campaigning, but from the point of view of some women it could prove more successful than many other ways.

If I were to cycle to lunch/ dinner I would still carry dress and shoes in a pannier - you never know what you might put your foot in if you have to suddenly come off the bike. If you are looking for a new bike I would certainly recommend the Batavus Alamo which offers the best of touring and comfo...
