Looks interesting, hope you can attend and report
Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott
We love the three Es: enforcement, enforcement & enforcement

Have booked but can't promise to report as i am not that technical. More brucey's patch perhaps. Just hoping I will come away with a religious wonder about the wheel.

If anyone does go, feel free to say hi to me. Will have a red spesh helmet in tow.

I attend a lot of lectures (this Saturday one about Greenland)
I always take an exercise book and make notes, it helps to read them later back home
Someone asked me whether I was a journalist? No, just a middle-aged gent interested in nearly everything :wink:

Not sure what the relevance of the picture of a broad-bean is but the talk sounds very interesting.

Out of interest, did anyone get to it?

I did.

In brief, I found it wonderful/inspiring, but would be interested in other impressions.

I'm probably not up to doing it justice bryn.

Mike Burrows spoke at some length, this vid made by the Engineering club was also shown at the event.

I understand that this free event will include some sort of update on the mike burrows soup dragon.

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/engineer ... 5782418716

I went to the event last year as a member of joe public.

Posted here as maybe of interest to our merry band of narrow enthusiasts - please don't post more widely in case they start to bar outsiders.

If anyone goes and is looking for me I will probably have about my person a red dhb cycling helmet.

Feel free to introduce yourselves.
