Down by the river...

    With best bike at the LBS for Headset and BB, I persuaded my cycling pal, his Mrs and Mrs FF to go for a pedal along the river into Oxford for a beer.
    There was some kind of a regatta going on and all kinds of sunny loviliness to share (plus playing with Mrs FF's new Ixus).
    Enjoy!

    Very nice - know the route well and seems lovely weather for it!

    Christ - remember a moment on that path on the way to Abingdon as it runs by the railway line - I was screaming down it at night once and suddenly saw a cow standing right in the middle of the path, slammed on the anchors and screeched to a halt a bare gnats pube from it. It just looked at me like cows do. My heart rate must have been well over 200bpm!

    I can do bigger (7MP), but my laptop only has M'soft Picture Manager and this is the biggest option I can upload on this site...unless anybody knows a better way?

  7. Every time I look at this thread title that spiritual song 'down by the riverside' pops into my head. I wouldn't mind so much but it's a really cheesy jazz version. Bah

    Get out.

    You can come back in when you know what you've done wrong.

    Noooo! re-wire brain immediately. Try Feels Like Rain by Buddy Guy. Nearly the same title as one line...

    " Down hill the River meets the sea"

    Don't youtube it - crap live version

    You should be able to shrink photos in Office Picture Manager....alternatively you could download a little tool off the microsoft website called Powertoys Image Resizer which does some default sizes at a click of the mouse: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

    This is assuming you are using XP.

    FFS why no fancy fotos la Femme FF in them?

    Or does that need a special sign-in to a secret section of the cyclechat site??
