  1. Joffey liked Crackle's post in the thread Improving the Tour.

    Let's see what this year's shorter stage brings. I think it's those kind of tweaks that need making......... Alternatively, as it's France, during the race the riders have to negotiate a number of obstacles, roads blocked by farmers up in arms...

    Oh yeah, insane stunt bonus.

    Point to point but they only learn the locations of the controls on the day of the race so they have to do their own navigation. Coupled with @alicat 's idea of no team support and bringing their own sarnies. Hardcore Audax, basically.

    And bring their own sarnies.

    No support - they have to fix their own bikes.

    We don't want Lance back!

    Motors - but not hidden! You could have a 'fan-boost' like they had on Formula E - you all vote on Twitter and the winner gets 400 watts for 1 minute on the final climb or something. You could also use these motors like an F1 style DRS system...

    We do need to be careful when using this feature not to quote others out of context though. :laugh:

  9. ColinJ liked Sea of vapours's post in the thread The Metric Century (100KM) A Month Challenge ChatZone.

    I understand that they are rumoured to have the odd mildly steep bit of road every so often ... ;-) I've walked across them, and they seem pretty 'flat' (for generously interpreted values of 'flat' at least'), but looking at a few climb...

    My cousin drove us out to Whitby yesterday to do some sight-seeing. It was the first time that I got a good look at the NY Moors. They definitely look worth exploring by bike, but also VERY tough! :eek:

    This weather which allows long, point to point, rides is soooo much better than most 'summers'. Overcast today, crossing the North Pennines and Dales, but almost entirely dry and it always looked safely as if any rain would be minimal. I enjoyed...

    Guards vans on trains that you could throw your bike in and sit there with it.

  14. winjim liked Andy in Germany's post in the thread The nasty party.

    Good grief- that would mean potentially coming onto contact with those grubby people who vote for them: Imagine if they had to actually talk to someone who had been affected by their vicious policies. Even worse, they would lose access to their...

  15. winjim replied to the thread The nasty party.

    Maybe you're right, but either way it seems nasty to me. It's buying in to nostalgic Tory notions of tradition and elitism, and it's giving more respect to the chamber itself than to the people who sit in it. You know what, it's just a room with...
