  1. ColinJ liked doughnut's post in the thread 55 mile scenic (hilly!) loop from Hebden Bridge, 6th May, 2017.

    I'm 50-50 right now Colin. I'm teaching kids to sail on Friday night for sure, but I need to find out if I'm needed there on Saturday as well. If not then I'm good for this one. I should know for sure this weekend and I'll let you know. Thanks...

    I found myself worrying about that kind of eventuality for the first few months back on my bike but in the end I decided that it would try and carry on as I did before the illness. It's not like I ever rode around thinking that it would be okay...

    Oh well, if the government is now legally bound to do it there can surely be no way out, and I shall surely vote for them again in the 2020 election

    Did anybody actually read the article? It's £315m from central govt, the rest from local authorities and local enterprise partnerships, and it doesn't include London as they have their own fancypants devolved transport funding system.

    I have added a map and elevation profile. You will see that it is quite a testing route but not the killer that the original '70' was. These rides usually average 14 - 16 kph (9 - 10 mph) overall, including about an hour's worth of stops. Call...

    Professionals do a lot of things we don't. I could use EPO without being caught*, but somehow I think using it would be pretty pointless. * as I am never subjected to drug testing.

    Maybe it's so they land nearer their bikes in an accident.

    Well, for those in a desperate hurry for more details ... this route is the same as the 70-miler between Slack and the A58. The start is different: Heptonstall Rd, Lee Wood Rd, Draper Ln vs the harder, longer start via Lumbutts, Bacup Rd,...

  12. ColinJ replied to the thread Get on the drops..

    Both types are a bit trickier from the drops than normal Shimano but unless you have very short or weak thumbs then operation is still possible - I do it on most rides. Well, strictly speaking, from the downward part of the drops. I don't tend...

    55 mile scenic (hilly!) loop from Hebden Bridge, 6th May, 2017

    Hello again, hill-dodgers! :hello: Many of you enjoyed avoiding my recent hilly forum ride based on the 'Calderdale 70', so I thought I would give you the chance to miss out on another one ... :laugh: I actually missed out on my own ride last...

  14. ColinJ liked Welsh wheels's post in the thread What would you have done?.

    When I used to work for Deliveroo, I very quickly learnt which eating establishments were happy for you to take your bike inside and which would try and get you sacked if you tried it. I took my bike in a chip shop the other day and they didn't...
