Mundane News

learned the hard way not to follow a gritter too closely while out on the bike... :whistle:
if you can't beat them, join them?

DCLane

Found in the Yorkshire hills ...
I was £50 up earlier today, which went on two haircuts (£24) and lunch out for two (£12).

Then son no. 2 went out on a ride, losing his saddle bag in the process - "didn't realise it had gone, not a clue where it is ... somewhere between home and the other side of Huddersfield".

Said saddle bag (£14) contained two mech hangers, one difficult to get (£40), a tube, tyre levers and a brake pad plus some chain links (£15). Oh, and as it's come off it's also taken a rear light attached to it (£8).

So ... I end the day £63 down

:cry:

Time to make the lad take up busking, methinks... :whistle:

Point of order: Huddersfield has no other side than a bad side!

(Disclaimer: I've never been there. But I've heard tell ....)

Huddersfield has a "bad side", a "very bad side" and a "not as bad the very bad side side". It's more like a triangle. Note that I live in Dewsbury, much of which makes the whole of Huddersfield look soft. If you're unsure have a look at the two BBC programmes with the "Hometown" title; both of which cover Huddersfield but also Dewsbury.

I'll be through there tomorrow, using the same route as him, but doubt the saddle bag will be anywhere in sight.

I was wondering if you had retraced his route .
You could try looking or posting on face ache . There are a few decent people around .
