Prescription Sunglasses For Cycling

Does any one know where I can get some reasonably priced wraparound prescription sunglasses suitable for cycling? I don't want to pay £150 or more. Some of the places I've Googled seem very expensive. I'm short sighted and wear glasses all the time. I'm fed up with normal glasses that let the wind i...

No cycling for me for a week or so as I was ill at work on Monday. Rushed into Casualty with chest pains by work colleague, hooked up to ECG...

Sorry to hear that. Give the tablets time to work. It normally takes a few weeks, depending on what you're taking. You are not alone. It's more common than you think. I've suffered from it too. Keep in touch with your doctor. See if you can get counselling and help with stress. Listen relaxing music...

Thanx. I don't think my parents cat would sit on a bike like that.
I like cats but my husband is allergic to them.
The cat in my piccie is called Sprocket and he was bought in a tea shop near Kirkcudbright.
He travelled back to our holiday cottage in my pannier.

What about a B and M Lumotec Plus front and a battery powered LED light on the rear?

I've got the B and M Lumotec Plus powered by a bottle dynamo on my touring bike and it's really good.

B and M also do LED powered dynamo lights which get good reviews.

Hello. Either set of rims will be fine. In my experience, and it is just personal preference, Mavic rims aren't quite as good as they used to be and are getting expensive. When I built up some new touring wheels I used Rigida Sputnik rims. I'd go for the Sun rims. SJS builld good wheels so you shoul...

Ooh thanks.
I will give it a try and check its roobustness.
I like the part where it says you have to go in with your hands.
Cakes can be healthy when full of carrots and fruit.
Or bananas.

I can't bake cakes that no one else will eat as my husband sniffs them out!

Cake recipes

Hi does anyone else use cycling as an excuse to scoff loads of cake?
Knowing you've still got twenty miles to go, it gives you an energy boost.
I like fruit cake but I'm open to suggestions and recipes.

It has to taste good when squashed. Sticky icing is out of the question. :arrow:

Hello I'm new here.
I love bikes and seem to spend ages reading these pages.
I thought I'd join in.
I like building wheels and making cakes because they're good for cycling fuel.
