    I've got a 'Kit Carbonio' Flite here in Norwich that'd I'd gladly post to you? It's a bit fancier than a regular Flite Titanium though, and I found it a bit too stiff when I was riding without bibs on, so it might not be ideal for day to day use in regular clothes depending on what you'd be using it for?

    Not my picture, but it's this model:

    I'm in no rush to get rid of it, but I'd rather it get used than just sit in a box!

    Hey @pit it was a bit of a scorcher when I did all of Peddars last summer, no taps as such, but we found two fairly convenient water stops.

    There's a service station just after you cross the A47 outside Swaffham, which is directly on the route. Filled up at McDonalds, but there's a petrol station shop too.

    If you take a left into Sedgeford when you get there, the King William pub were more than welcoming - loads of those 'walkers and cyclists refill here' stickers in the window etc.

    We also stopped at the Thornham Deli, off the A149, but that's because we also included the coast road to Sheringham to get the train back to Norwich. Little villages come thick and fast on the coast, so you won't have a problem finding anywhere once you get there.

    Oh, and we were carrying two bottles each between four of us, and did a bit of sharing when we got low, but it was unexpectedly warm, so you'll be fine!

    Enjoy!

    Fuck, MVDP and others just went down really hard in the final few hundred metres of Nokere Koerse. MVDP and maybe two others taken away on stretchers. Horrible to see that live.

    And UK National Champs Road Races starting and finishing in Norwich (via North Norfolk), with the TTs being further out at Sandringham.

    @jgadd I think it's a good set for the most part, but for me personally I much prefer the more artistic single-rider photos rather than the group ones.

    A nicely framed racer making their way through the environment of a CX course is much more interesting to me from a visual standpoint than a shot of a mass start (full of people I don't know).

    I suppose it's differentiating between artistic cycling photography and race reportage. Of course the best photographers can do both, but I suppose that requires a bit more of a creative 'risk' on the day.

    That's just me though, and I'm barely more than a casual photographer, so take my opinion as just being that!

    This one is my favourite by far:

    It's very nicely composed with the tape and the trees framing the rider with strong leading lines. The rider's position is obviously interesting too, not to mention the blue shoe being another pleasing contrast which grabs the eye.

    It's a great photo, in my opinion :)

    @gubhi Nice Flite for your Caad4 over here.

    Edit: Looks like you might have been beaten to it :(
