    That sounds like hard work to me. The climb I mean not the weather and females.

    I've just done a 2 hour spin in sunshine and blue skies but not 21 deg though more like an anagram of that. Well done gezza, sounds like you're on course to muller the Pyrenees!
     
  5. Well done gezza - nice to know that your bike arrived in one piece (or at least in several pieces which formed the whole)! ;)

    It is cold and wet in London - and I'm not talking beer here...and the cops were in Regents Park this morning so a couple of laps at about 46kmh past their radar guns were obligatory... :tongue:

    Sod off:angry:. I hate you already!;)

    Sounds like very nice work if you can get it. I just wish you'd get the helicopter off the ground, as it were. I love the idea of that...
