    Currently in Egpyt for a couple of weeks and my cab driver from the airport reckons a big sandstorm is on the way. Haven't cycled in one of them before.

    An old uncle of my mum has some good stories about sand and the desert from his time serving with the 51st Highland Division in North Africa during WW2

    You won't cycle in it for very long. The chain and running gear will be filings. :biggrin:
