  • A place for questions about Birmingham...

    Can someone tell me what days the outdoor fruit and veg markets (next to rag market in Digbeth) are open?

  • Tuesday through to Saturday.

  • I think they are closed Monday, Thursday and Sunday.

  • Why is there so much shit everywhere in Birmingham compared to other parts of the UK?

  • There's the same shit everywhere Dan, but in Birmingham we highlight it for you rather than covering it up.

  • What are everyones cycling ambitions for the year ahead?

  • to try not to break my ribs again

  • Try to average 100miles a week min (when we get some more light).

  • Get my road bike to look as battered/worn as my hack bike.

  • Finally do a fixed century.

  • Go on a ride with Dan where we stop and rest at some point.

  • n3il, similiar to the strava challenge, i'll do 100miles a week with you for a (summer) month.

  • Go on a ride with Dan where we stop and rest at some point.

    Ha, Ha. Has he become a rouleur?

  • Dunwich Dynamo, I'll probably be riding fixed as I never seem to get the cash together for a bike with gears.

  • More touring and camping more climbing up big long hills.... Less RTAs.

  • Go on a ride with Dan where we stop and rest at some point.

    Neil always has some pressing engagement with his car or nan, so we have to keep moving if we want to get anywhere. I actually would like to stop and enjoy the scenery/beer more often, but I end up riding early mornings so the latter is out. Neil also chooses the stupidest times to stop (bottom of a hill in the shade, wtf?)

    I'll echo EMM's aims. I have a serious hankering to do a bunch of S24Os with friends and/or the missus. I want to do a European trip of at least one week, preferably not circular. Might do Exmouth Exodus. In the last few days I've remembered a desire to start fishing, so maybe some fishing rides.... More riding to destinations to do stuff; not just going out on another Worcestershire/Warwickshire loop (as much as I appreciate the convenience). If it's dry-ish, hire an MTB for some Welsh/Lakeland or Scotch off-roading.

    Enough?

  • Ride to the seaside!

  • is Rollapaluza coming through town this year?

  • To ride round the bmx track in perry park and clear all the jumps (or just one).

  • My aim is to continue cycling as a new father, and make many of my friends (who are parents) EAT THEIR WORDS......
    'You'll have no time for hobbies'
    'Surely thats selfish, wanting to ride?'
    'You'll be too tired to put in any miles'
    'Are you going to sell your bikes?'

    Hurrumph. My aim is to be stronger, with quality commuting forming the majority of my mileage.

  • By the way, the baby hasnt arrived yet.... 6 weeks to go.

    If anyone can do it, you can.

    That was my aim when first-born was on her way. I managed to get most of my miles in through cycle commuting.

    First-born in now 22 and I'm still getting most of my miles in through cycle commuting. D'oh!

  • anyone been to that brewdog place on john bright street? Is the beer any good

  • Interesting, but expensive. Worth going once to try.
