    My understanding of the process; all the first preference votes are counted anyone who gets more than 50% wins outright this is unlikely outcome. I believe this is only possible for one candidate a, person I doubt that is Sadiq Khan. Personally I doubt he will, no candiate in all the Mayoral election has achieved this.

    So there is a second round, where all but the top two drop out and peoples second preference votes are counted and one candidate wins. So it's ok to vote Green first pref and Khan second pref, the antis won't win by the back door and for me Khan is my second pref is a solid comment on his New Labour failings.

    Make it a rule the job ads have to come with pay rates ? Or they get deleted.

    Too many people seam to think to work for no pay is ok.

    Had my first AZ jab today, a smooth process in an out in 10 mins. A bit of a sore arm and did feel a little odd for a couple of hours today but now nothing really. I went to work straight after the jab rode home tonight and all is well.

    Many thanks to all those who make this happen.

    Ok my bit.

    I think an important question is where do you want the electric motor to be. There are 3 opions.

    In the front wheel; I think these are cheap an nast an would avoid.

    In the rear wheel; found on a wide range of mid priced and more expensive sportier Road Bikes ( a Road Bike is a racing bike with bdrop handlebars , narrow saddle, "crouched" riding position) the nice thing about E Road Bikes is often they don't look like E bikes, good ones are expensive £5k etc.

    A mid mounted motor, where the pedals are: a good option that are found on usual better and more expensive E bikes often aimed at the Leisure market, usually more of a flat handle bar communter style of bike, good one are not cheap. There are also fancy and expensive off road bike with lots of suspension with this set up that can cost a lot.

    A final thought woulld be, actually finding somewhere that has stock could be a real issue. The Covid bike boom has empted the warehouses. I hope that hasn't put you off, any sort of bike is still the best way around!

    Wonder if Evans will end up as a section in Sports Direct "super" stores, a bike, bottles, couple of jerseys and how to order on line.
