Older but not necessarily wiser than most on this forum...please prove me wrong somebody! I cycle to work daily. Manage the occasional UK MTB ride and once a year an 'exotic' excursion to the sunny Alps or similar. Reckon if I keep cycling I will keep cycling...........

    Alan Shearer sets out to prove Geordies are not thick, as is often postulated. He hires Newcastle's football ground St James' Park and invites Gazzer along to help him prove his point. The stadium is full; a capacity crowd. On the stage erected in the middle of the ground Alan asks Gazzer 'What's 234 divided by 7?'. Gazzer is at a loss. 'Sorry Alan arve nee idea like'. The crowd breaks into a chant: ' Give 'um anotha chance, give 'um anotha chance '. So Al says 'Gazza, what's 13 x 3?'. Gazza, under pressure, has a stab at it. '16' he says, smiling confidently. Alan is crestfallen. But the crowd wants more. 'Give 'um anotha chance, give 'um anotha chance ', they cry. Al can only relent. 'OK Gaz, what's 2 and 2?'. Gazzer beams....'4!' he says and the crowd goes wild, shouting 'Give 'um anotha chance, give 'um anotha chance '.

    A Geordie goes to the doctor and says 'Doctor doctor me armpits smell of coconut'.

    Doc says 'Why they're Bounty'.

    Ipswich station Joke du Jour.

    Do you have a reservation?

    No. Only a small flat in Mile End.

    Yeh I think they have always taken reservations. And then it all goes to shoite. Weather. Legs. Beer. Navigation. So. Turn up and there'll be a space for you cos someone lost their beery, weary way. The staff are amazing at the station.

    Last year I rode back to Ipswich in sunshine. Lots of train capacity properly organised and no need to book. I'd recommend it. Although the previous year it rained most of the way back to Ipswich and then no trains due to a lorry hitting a bridge. Chaos? Wet cold chaos. I booked into the Railway Hotel across the road at 11.30am. Had a hot bath, ate burger and chips in the bath, drank IPA in the bath, watched tdf in the bath, slept for some hours not in the bath. Checked out at 5pm and caught a now-running train home to London. I didn't stay overnight although I do still have the room key. I wonder......
