Or pedal reflectors?

I wonder if they have cake recipes too? Can't be a proper cycle forum without these!

I wonder if they have heard how good the Catlike whisper helmets are?

Good luck to them.

As the result of another post from meic, I had a look at this:

http://www.ctc-wales.org.uk/forum/SMF/

I was hoping to try out my road sign Welsh as in 'weineb dros dro' but it seems even less lively than the Cycle Training section on here.

E.g sadjack posted a query about panniers or somesuch on 3 February and is still awaiting a reply. By coincidence he's been trying to stir up some interest on there today. (Even our thread on Archery has got up to 32 posts and still counting 8) )

All I can say chaps is look outwards instead of in. Join us on here and we'll try to make you welcome. I think that's croeso according to the road signs :oops:
