Mental Mondays #3 – Crossword & puzzles by Chipps

by 9

Chipps is the designer of this week’s fiendishly tricky crossword. You may need to have your MTB historical records to hand to complete this one. Good luck.

Todays quiz was composed of clues I didn’t have to look up on the internet, so expect a mix of slightly retro, slightly historic with a mix of personalities. You probably won’t need your world atlas or Wikipedia for this one. Try it without resorting to the internet.


Don’t forget there are prizes for two of you who manage to complete our crossword and if it’s all too tricky there are some just for fun puzzles further down the page. Oh, and the solution to Singletrack Crossword #2 is down there along with all the names of those that successfully completed it.

Jigsaw #3 – Chipps’ Pub Bike

If you get to ride flash bikes as part of your job, what bike do you build yourself on a framebuilding course? Chipps decided on a ‘performance pub bike’. Three hub gears (to the pub, back from the pub and back from the pub down the hill), hub brakes for simplicity and big tyres for taking the off road detour.

  • Chipps, loved that crossword. Certainly got some pangs of nostalgia. Good way to start a dull week at work!

    Only got 1 left to get and I can’t…the South West MTB company, just can’t get it!

    Jigsaw was good but I can’t get the slider to work…which is probably for the best as I should be working a bit more rather than taking the full hour for my lunch!

    @DickBarton check yer DM.

    Try the sliding puzzle now. I’ve removed the background image so you should be able to see the empty square more easily.

    I prefer that there is no completed image to copy on the jigsaw this week.

    I couldn’t figure out the SW bike company and the pickle clue. Great fun though. Keep them going.

    The southwest-based bike company is a toughie. Beyond Orange’s predecessor Tushingham, and X-Lite I can’t think of many SW-based companies from that far back.
    I’m also still struggling with what puts you on the map (not EPO surprisingly!) and what really powers the forum. I’ll kick myself on the latter, I’ve seen/heard it on several occasions.
