  1. ColinJ replied to the thread Café stop required Ulverston area.

    Not me, but the FNRttC team do it. I have phoned cafe owners to make sure that they plan to be open at certain times but have never asked them to open when they were not going to. I think you would have to be able to promise a pretty big turnout...

    Here in the UK we're only supposed to park on the left, but in reality everybody seems to park pretty much willy-nilly.

    Not caught out as such but he made an assertion and then got grumpy when asked for clarification. Which is quite funny.

  5. Joffey liked booze and cake's post in the thread Velobici Modernist Ride Cap - HOW MUCH?.

    Ha, and I remember buying a Rapha cycling cap for £15 and thought they were taking the p***, which they were, but... £35 for a cap!! I'd want one signed by Eddy Merckx that he wore for a TDF win for that. I've never heard of them, no heritage,...

  6. Joffey replied to the thread Velobici Modernist Ride Cap - HOW MUCH?.

    I'm not upset, just think that £35 for a cap is quite a lot when it appears to offer no performance benefits compared to other cheaper products. And if I wanted it I could afford it, all of it in fact, but there is a difference between cost and...

  7. Joffey liked Globalti's post in the thread Velobici Modernist Ride Cap - HOW MUCH?.

    Well if the kit was cheap, people wouldn't think it was any good! I'll never forget the story of the super groupset that Suntour developed for pro riders. They priced it too cheap, the teams thought it couldn't be any good and it bombed, almost...

    Velobici Modernist Ride Cap - HOW MUCH?

    Each to their own and all that but the British brand Velobici seems to be extracting the urine a little with the pricing of it's 'Modernist' kit. Now we all might want to wear super expensive kit designed by a photographer who seems to model...

    Chester. You'd continue the route onto the Greenway at deeside, then instead of going towards Wales, go back over the bridge. Then into Chester and you're not too far from the station. I'll make you a route if you want.

  12. ColinJ liked Dirk's post in the thread The Mea Culpa Thread.

    Racing a 500cc BSA for a very good sponsor at Cadwell Park in 1997. We had finished our events for the day, we were all gagging for a beer and the team was relaxing in the bar when my missus said - "They've just called out your number for the...

    Strange that there’s an advert for Cyclist magazine at the bottom of this thread.

    I hope that, in the interests of health and safety, they have also removed any explosive materials and small toys which may constitute a choking hazard.
