    I don't if I'm breaking rules talking about a paid for ride, which is 25 squid but, but Ace Hotel provide coffee and light lunch, you get to use Fuji Instax camera with film, so you can take kind of Polaroids along the way. We make 4 stops along the way where do my usual thing and go on about trees, these will be proper old trees you may not have ever noticed, even you Tag of Tag fiends will even find difficult. Guarantee it will be more interesting than Steve Davis....

    I am getting into greenwood carving and have been mistaken for Barn the Spoon 3 times now so it seems ineviatable. The hardest thing is finding fresh green wood which is dried out and still easily carvable now. I've carved a few spoons and potentially have an in with a pole lathe. So very keen but need to find a friendly tree surgeon preferably south london who I might ply with beer if they can but the odd log my way, upto 12inch long, ideally 6-8 inch diameter knot and shake free. It softwoods ash/birch/willow/chestnut (fruit tree wood at a push) nothing hard/coniferous/tropical. Any ideas/suggestions welcome

    Still not very skilled in the operation of forums, but loving this thread. I'm a landscape architect with no garden and am forced to enjoy gardening vicariously, also very skilled in the art of fruit tree pruning if anyone ever needs any assistance/advice

    I miss my mum's old David Brown 885 small and gutless but it's still running after nearly 50 years

    Not that crazy, when you consider you could wait at least 5 years to grow something to that sort of size. And if it is from Tendercare they do good stock. Coblands cash and carry down and Sevenoaks can work out well if you can wangle a trade card. Why not try growing yerself a nice Cornus kousa, it'll grow a site quicker has some flowers and a very interesting fruit you can eat to boot

    This one is hilarious, particularly enjoyed the one with Arthur Smith. The recent Brian Blessed episode is must listen stuff. Also though probs already mentioned Theres No Such Thing as a Fish

    Been using my alloy one for 4 years, massively overload a Nelson Longflap, full shop and a beer growler on frequently and it hasn't snapped. Don't if I'm just lucky or careful rider but been very happy with it even though i know materials are supposedly inferior

    Hey guys, can anyone help me find somewhere to produce some custom deacals for my next fancy bike. No problem producing a graphic file, just looking for someone to do the printing/cutting ? Completely new to this and not sure where to start
