  • It's been like that for at least a month, in terms of stock. It has been on the news and mentioned on the forum too...

  • lo, i've got no excuse.

    i sold a bike on ebay about a month ago and, weirdly, got a deluge of reasonable offers.

  • Further to observations of unserviced diesel-engined vehicles.
    Yesterday, proceeding east along th'Uxbridge Road just going past Ealing Hospital,
    so needing to get a move on to climb out of the valley of the Brent,
    a small Ford, (possibly a Fiesta), stationary, due the set of traffic lights up the incline,
    was laying down a smoke screen and smelt like a traction engine.

  • Isn't the main service for diesel cars in London to remove the particle filter for more oompf?

  • They should check lufguss's classified. They could buy someone's half built project for the price of a decathlon cheapie


    After four days gardening was great to get out on the bike for a short spin, a couple of close shaves with white vans around Chigwell.. looks like some people are back in full rat race mode. Apart from that was good to try out a different route from Olympic Park to Walthamstow Coppermill Lane. Passed a handful of Penny Farthings too which was a joy to see. High Beech was open for tea and cake

  • Did the Man of Kent audax route today. It’s a lovely route and was one of the nicest days on the bike I’ve had in recent memory.

  • Worth a trip to Woolwich to ride through the tunnel.

    So cool down there.

  • Hmm... is it just me curious about thinking about keeping Richmond closed when ppl flooding Soho to get first dibs at some pub booze ?

  • nothing in this country makes sense, I saw someone clapping for NHS from a pub half an hour ago.

  • Man. I saw about fifty people in a group ride in Malibu a couple of weeks ago. I thought that with the spike in cases here in California people would stop riding in groups again, not that they ever should have been on group rides in the first place, but no. Saw loads of people on group rides yesterday. WAC>>>>

    Continuing to ride solo as per usual.

  • Still enjoying the park when it is open (weekdays) though. Completely different atmosphere when it's just humans/ human powered transport.
