    For about 20miles I invariably rode 'straight' - no twisty, turny kind of roads, at times, they were a mile or 2 long on some straights...


    :tongue:

    Other than that it was 80kms' - on a 3hr stint afte rnavigating a Lord Mayors Parade AND a Big ship morred up on the banks of the Mersey.

    I've been meaning to ask how the city of culture thing was going. Looks OK if you like Morris Dancing and Kite Flying ;).

    I wouldn't mind having a look at the Ark Royal. Wasn't it in the news recently because some lowlifes had chucked the ships mascot overboard (a cat) ?

    Was talking to 1 of the crew once and its fantastic way yo save money being in the forces / on that boat.

    They were saying that you dont spend any money as everythings thrown in food housing etc..

    Though recent, there are more conflicts around.
