Vintage? Peugeot Cyrus (ladies bike)

I've seen this bike on Ebay & as it's too far to go and see, I wondered if anyone could tell me anything about this model? It looks really unusual with dimpled fully fitting mudguards but it seems to have a sort of derailleur with a single speed at the back, almost as if the middle little wheel ...

Are your daffodils out yet?

A couple of crocus out in my poor front garden, plus a few snowdrops. Some little flowers on my forsythia. Near Ladybower on Saturday there were hundreds of crocus on the verge.

Not on bike though, met a friend and we went walking, and eating and then rushing for the train!

Crouch End to Euston Station

Thanks everyone. I think cycling would be a better bet. When looking at a plan of the overground route, it looks so far, forgot that the rail/underground maps aren't a true representation of actual location or distance! (Remember Nick Crane's programme about the London Underground?) If I do buy the ...

New Bike Route for a Jolly Day Out

Hi Mary, super shots, as usual. The route along Marine Drive is great. I did it when I decided to ride as close to the Raad ny Foillan (Manx Coastal Path for cyclists who've never heard of it) as possible, the year after doing the actual route by foot (of course). It was great cycling along Marine D...

Crouch End to Euston Station

Does anyone know if it is easy to get from Crouch End to Euston with a non-folding bike by train?

Just want to know how feasible it is as I don't know London well enough to cycle from one to another. I believe there is an overground? railway.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Red Dragon Pie

That sounds delish Mary, what's Reggie Reggie sauce & where can you buy it?

I'll have to go & get some Aduki beans as the last ones I bought were sprouted.

Bamboo socks

All my socks have had it & have problems with elastic digging into legs (anyone else has that problem) so was looking in Asda yesterday I saw bamboo ladies socks. Not too much elastic. TOO BIG as I've got tiny feet. Decided to go to childrens section & found bamboo socks (think they've got s...

Spring has Sprung

Yes, a bit warmer around here too. Peeped behind the shed the other day trying to get enthusiasm for tidying the very scruffy garden filled with 'gleanings' from neighbours who was literally putting all sorts of rocks & pieces of wood & bricks in a skip. Thought I just might find a just for ...

Hi there. Welcome!

All these lovely kitty pictures. I must try to get one of my spoilt cat in low res to put on here. Have lots of them but all taken best quality.

Didn't realize there were so many cat lovers.

Things we use that should never be manufactured again

You could have some of my handbags, Paulah! I buy them from charity shops & then take them back again! Also I pick up the red rubber bands and use them for all sorts of things, like securing plastic bags, around sleeves sometimes and lots more uses. I had a very nice veggie chopper from JML whic...

Manx Sheep - The Grand National

Pity you weren't over here Mary, my husband would restore it for you!!! He is called 'Tynwald Triumph' as he mainly restores Triumph Stags so the Tynwald is 'cos he was born over the water there. It's the sort of thing you only see on postcards from the Lake District or on a comedy programme. It's a...

The Gadget Show

Yes, I couldn't understand about why they didn't see where they should be going. I don't have problems on my trike either. I thought the guy on the front of the Hase looked under-stretched, he looked all legs and very awkward didn't he? I don't think I'd like the recumbent trike myself, far to long ...

The Gadget Show

Did anyone see the Gadget Show on Friday? I don't normally watch this but saw a trailer for it. There was a race between a Greenspeed tandem trike and a Hase Pino somewhere near Edinburgh. The Hase won in the end but only because the Greenspeed couldn't see the road signs above the cars on a traffic...
