    @el_presidente Depending on where you live, your local fire service may supply and fit them for free.

    Looking at turbo mats - is there any real benefit over a (much cheaper) yoga mat or similar?

    Hardtail probably best, the marked trails are relatively tame. A couple of fun sections in the middle but mostly quite 'XC' I'd say.
    Fun for an hour or two if you're passing (it's near my in-laws') but not worth traveling far to visit IMO.
    It does have a newish 'freeride' area that may be worth investigating if that's your sort of thing.

    Yeah I've got a reconditioned kickr core, it's been fine. I feel like reconditioned is potentially less risky as they've already fixed any issues!

    That route includes two classic Peaks descents - The Beast and one that I just know as the Ladybower Inn descent (pops you out at a pretty good pub)

    This is 20km rather than 40 but you could go round twice if you fancy it? https://www.strava.com/activities/302211­6757

    You can also link it up with Jacob's Ladder but I don't have a route for that.

    Thanks, yeah I think the fence is unnecessary and would just be awkward really. I can't see any benefit.
    Virtually every other garden office seems to have a fence next to/behind it, which is probably why I originally thought we'd put one there, but on reflection I guess that's because the fence is normally already there and is the boundary.

    Looking for opinions on our garden redesign.

    We have a small-ish garden, behind which is a large gravel parking area that we also own. Enough for probably 4 cars. So we're planning on extending the garden and putting in a garden office (v trendy right).

    Images should show it - the red line will be roughly where the extended garden boundary will be, yellow is garden office location. Small blue car isn't normally there. We'll remove the existing fence & gate and move it back (about 5m).

    Question is, do we need to put up a fence behind the new garden office (green dotted line)? We were planning to, but I'm not sure of the benefit - the back of the office will be a 2.1m wooden 'wall' so I feel like there's no reason to also have a fence behind it.

    There's no boundary with neighbours - the parking area behind is our property...

    Been closed for ages due to ash die back, there's been talk of reopening 'soon' but don't know when, I'm keen to return soon...

    Front wheel story doesn't add up, and who rides on rollers with cages?
