    Night Time Cycling advice

    I am after some advice on cycling at night. I enjoy cycling what I would call long distance usually between 30 and 50 miles during the day. But I would like to do a 30 to 50 mile round trip night ride. I know there are some advantages and disadvantages to this. I have a MTB which a always use...

    Time to close the books.

    It is now time to reveal how far you have been on the bike in 2021. In my own case, from March to now, only 2187 kms which is a lot less than I would have liked but every one of them was a pleasure. 2022 should improve on 2021 I hope. Have a good new year every body.🍾🍾

    Improvements and disimprovements over time

    A discussion of cup-and-cone bearings on another thread spurs me to examine those things that have changed over the many years I’ve been involved with bicycles (~1960s to present) in no particular order: Shifting: friction vs. indexed; down tube vs. bar-end vs. stem Brakes: rim vs. disc...

    Time for The Cake Eater Studded Tires

    Now this was a great way to end a four-day holiday weekend. Put the Terrene Cake Eater Studded Tires on the bike the day before, because of all the freezing rain we've had. Went out to a trail network that I visited for the first time a little over a month ago. Did plenty of climbing and just...

    Does it sound/feel different to ride on a trainer for the first time?

    So I finally got the right tool to install the new cassette, and I got the bike hooked up to the trainer for the first time. Should it feel or sound any different than it does off the trainer? I just got the bike last spring, so I'm new to this. Never used a trainer before. I'm sure I can't...

    Time for a new mini twin tub

    I remember posting about buying one about 3 years ago, but I can't find the thread to revive it. Anyway, my slightly used/pre-loved :rolleyes: mini/portable twin tub stopped spinning the other day. I got it for half price due to (I think) it being used once then returned to the seller. I need a...

    I've seen Angie's big baps for the first time in years, residents of Norwich might already know what I mean.

    Between 1998 and 2005 I used to travel down to East Anglia regularly for work and always used to have a schoolboy snigger when I reached the outskirts of Norwich, as in a lay by on the A47 was a bugger van called Angie's Big Baps. Not having been down there for years I was pleasantly surprised...

    Night time habits of your pet.

    Every night, usually between 9 and 10, Molly first stand in front of my wife and stares at her for a bit as she knows it is bed time as Mrs G always goes to bed first. Then she walks to the fridge and waits for her treat , usually a piece of ham, before coming back to me . I have to take my...

    Garmin Edge 1000 - How to change the time?

    I’ve never had to change the time on my Garmin when UK clocks go forward/back as it usually does this automatically, unfortunately this hasn’t happened this time and the clock is an hour out. Does anyone know how I can change this? Thank you in advance.

    When was the last time you......fell off your bike ?

    Last week, just two commutes ago. Climbing a 270% very steep, very wet cobbled climb on the canal - front wheel washed out. No damage done, just swearing. Before that, just a few weeks prior - lost count of the number of minor falls at Penmachno - fun though. Lying upside down, unable to get...

I measured the seat tube at 33 mm but the only size I can find near to what I require is (copied from ad) 34.9mm Clamp With Shims For 31.8mm Size (Can Be Removed) Will this do the job or should I keep...

    Right place at the right time

    A cyclist had a very lucky escape when he crashed and was thrown over a bridge parapet into the river below. He was riding solo on a 186-mile ride when it happened and an RAF nurse in her garden caught a glimpse of something red flying over the bridge. If it wasn’t for her, he likely would...

    25 mile time compared to 10 mile TT

    Tonight I did my local 10 TT, recording a reasonable time (for me), with an average speed of 22.3 mph. On Monday I did a 25 mile effort - on mostly the same roads but not under TT conditions - with an average speed of 21 mph. 1.3mph difference between 10 and 25 miles is a bit disappointing isn't...

    Not 'my touring bike', which has been serving as my bike for about the last two years, nor 'my carbon', which has been out for the occasional run, but 'my bike'... ...which I've been unable to ride since smashing my hip on it in in January 2019. Must admit I was a bit nervous - my muscles...
