Maybe ‘everyone’ was right and the organisers were wrong?
Nearly 1000 entrantrants V half a dozen organisers , give or take?
I enjoyed it when I did it, great course , good campsite , the weather they organised was acceptable. Showers were hot , if not slightly muddy.
I it’s because they never offered me a job, despite the fact I did very well at the interview and trial shift….

But the sensible folk do all they can to mitigate the risks by being pro active and assesing th danger and responding accoordingly
Wearing bright coloured clothing to stand out from the background clutter
Flashing bright lights front and rear

Been struggling with this for months , Its like having 2 grapes on the side of my throat /layrnx area. Always there but after a few pints or a cold bike ride gets worse and effects my voice ( think Marge Simpson ) and swallowing ability.
I don’t feel ill, maybe a little more tired than normal , and suffer if I dont get my 8 1/2 hrs sleep more…[Read more]
This is an article on the 2wd Ebikes me and Debz hired in France
TJ . Thats a fail. We were climbing up a snow and ice covered GR up a real mountain. You would have struggled to walk up it, with the assist turned down to 1/5 and pedaling away to maintain some balance…[Read more]

Sounds like a great lad. I would employ him. Reading through that I was thinking along the lines of groundsman in a retirement home complex old people don’t care if your cool or not, they have loads of patience and like to talk to young folk
Trades is a good idea but some od banter and micky taking might be merciless
School caretaker possibility too
They exist. I have ridden one. A 2wd fat bike on snow in the alps
Grip was amazing you could climb things that would not have been possible on a bike ever
Heavy as though with 4″ tyres 2 motors and battery
We reckoned you go from led deux alps to alpe d huez and back on a single charge
I wonder if there is not an opportunity for a pop up shop in either LGW or LHR to post back all the knives , perfume , and overweight bags to the homes of people who make the scholboy error of trying to carry on a bladed articles, have overpacked , or simply do not understand the fluids rules
Trouble is you would have to charge probably between…[Read more]
So when a huge amount of sme go bankrupt because no one has anY money to buy what they produce, and their export market is reduced hugely and the pound euro exchange plus new import taxes and levies make the business unviable it does not make a jot of difference what the tax rate is when you lose money every week
Wave user here . My PST is also in the bin at LGW , my fault as I had 2 and packed one in my hold bag then the x-ray machine spotted my ‘spare’ in the end compartment of my carry on. No time to queue up for 2nd bag check in.

60cm , its a gate mate , unless you are 190cm then crack on
But you are aiming to do a hell of alot of miles on a lettuce leaf and a slice of cucumber.
Throw all the rubbish in the direction of a foodbank
Plan meals properly, on advance, fish, chicken, pork plus veg, no pudding ot maybe a satsuma
Bin off the crisps at lunch add a boiled egg, 8 cherry tomatoes, maybe a small bit of beetroot
Then do a ride…[Read more]
I think if you try and ride those distances on a Kcal intake of less than 1000 a day you will run into a wall sooner rather than later.
Unless you really ease off at pootle everywhere you risk bonking on every ride apart from your commute

Don worry , My boss put his Springer Spaniel puppy on a staple diet . Literally the stupid mutt was searching the office floor and eating the staples that he had been dropping for months on the floor.

And they stink of old ashtrays when they come in, and their breath smells like they have been dog turd and pickled onion sarnies.
Why the need to exhale all the stink as they walk back in
Reckon you can get away with 2hrs free time if you plan your fag, toilet and lunch breaks accordingly

This is the answer you are looking for.-
£565 105 carbon disc new
My carbon road bikes have calipers, and I can say hole heartily that when it comes to brakes ultegra is supiroir to 105. More power and to a certain degree modulation. 105 won’t kill you, but ultegra gives more confidence when it gets a bit racey
