    Dawes Cambridge Mixte - errand bike

    I keep looking at my errand bike and thinking about how much it could be improved with grippier pedals and tyres and how all the plastic clashes with the steel frame ( which I love). And how much I dislike the fake rattan basket on the front, though I am not sure what I would replace it with (...

    Fork crown milling - Newmarket / Cambridge / Bury St Edmunds ?

    Can anyone direct me to an LBS (Suffolk or Cambs) that can ? My winter project (rebuilding a delta recumbent trike) has me learning on the job - but there are some things I see I can't do at home. I've discovered my newly-threaded 1" forks for the 20" front wheel appear to be JIS crown...

    After slumbering like a drunken student for a few years, 14th June sees the re-emergence of London to Cambridge. Setting off as usual at midnight from the Southbank, just by the BFI, this ride promises just under 70 miles of rolling road, with no gradient above 5%, and mainly downhill for the...

    Can anyone recommend an LBS in the Cambridge area?

    The wonderful folks at Ben Hayward Cycles near Cambridge have decided to call it a day and will soon cease trading. They have given me superb service for some years now and I'm gutted they're closing. I hope very much the staff there will be quickly snapped up by other outfits (they certainly...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride to Cambridge - 14th October

    A10 cycleway Cambridge - Network Rail want to close level crossing

    Just a heads up if anyone uses the new A10 cycleway between Royston and Cambridge - Network Rail want to close the pedestrian crossing permanently. This means cyclist will have to cross the busy A10 twice to get across the railway and back onto the cycle route - a total disaster and a poke in...
