    Shocking story. Her husband is missing and being treated as a suspect but I suppose he could have been kidnapped?

    Spent most of the race watching from behind the sofa. The straight line crashes, falling off the crest of the cobbles crashes, punctures and general carnage made it a great race to watch.
    I should add there was not a single part of the race that makes me want to ride the sportive there!!

    Hi
    It’s a 2014. As is typical with Boardman bikes the spec is high (clutch rear hub for example) but never that trendy.

    I’ve a Boardman Team Comp 650b in size small. I’m about the same height as your mate. According to strava it’s done 340kms. Basically brand new. Looking for £375.
    Oh and I’m near Arundel.

    A bit of advice required about lessons. I started with a local guy a few weeks ago.
    He didn’t ask what I could do and don’t ask what I wanted to do. So far I’ve had 3 lessons.
    Lesson 1 started a finger licking sequence,
    Lesson 2 the jam that’s entertainment
    Lesson 3 van Morrison brown eyes girl
    The lessons are 30 minutes, invariably they last longer but none have started on time, one was 20 minutes late.
    With my lesson of skill I don’t get very far during the lesson, there’s plenty of him showing his skills and a complex version of what I am trying to do.
    Is this normal? I’m 7 months into JustinGuitar and I must admit to getting on well with online but I have a tendency to pick things and I can do and can get going with quickly.
    Is it worth persevering with the in person lessons (or it takes more than 3 to know if it will work) or should I cut my losses?
    Another option is to cut from weekly to fortnightly to give me more time to get the skills embedded as at the moment I feel as if I haven’t got it nailed before the next lesson.
