    Prrrrrrrrrrrrobably - away to a festival in Oxfordshire or some shit this fri-sun/mon and driving both ways, so should be good unless I overindulge to the point of silliness, which is looking about 50/50 at the moment.
    If we're keeping it South could head to ally arms or rum shack afterwards maybe?

    Longtime lurker, first time caller..got a new bike recently and been half eyeing up the velodrome over at Parkhead, but due to lack of current fitness (was bikeless for 2 months at the start of summer) and general fear of organized sport, recently discovered the "velodrome" down at Bellahouston park..

    Been cycling down to the park (fairly close to where I stay) fairly regularly for the last 6 months as it's usually pretty quiet and has decent sufacing and a nice combo of hills and flats..but only realised it had the "velodrome" after a google search the other day.

    Anyway, went down to see it, and it is indeed quite pish but planning on going down a few times a week to fuck about and start semi working on lap times and that. Didn't really want to do an event for it, but if anyone fancies a few beers and pitiful banking on corners give us a shout here..!

    I used a cheap-ish U-lock lock on a bike when I lived in Brighton a couple years ago, and the lock seized completely when trying to use any of the three keys I had, while locked up outside a busy pub near the Level.
    After some deliberation, borrowed an angle grinder off a crusty pal and went at it (with a pair of sunglasses on for spark protection) at about 2pm. A few people walking past made some comments but I just joked that I was stealing it and nobody stopped for longer than a few seconds.
    Good for me getting bike back cheaply, bad on the utter ease of stealing a bike in literal broad daylight side of things. Recently contemplated repeating this after dealing with Kryptonite and the key replacement service ...zzzzzzz
