    It's the CIA!!!! They have been contacted by the oil companies, the corporations are trying to kill off any form of green transport by infiltrating web forums and killing off the postees......

    Been somewhat busy, worked something daft like 40 hours over the weekend and am still catching up, annoyingly I was in London and drove past the Morpeth several times, argh.

    Work is going mental at the moment and I'm afraid I've rather had to abandon y'all for a bit.

    I am still lurking occasionally, even getting out on my bike occasionally and still planning on hosting a social ride on the 9th of May, who's coming?

    SaraJoy is on a boat with Mr SaraJoy. She responded to the text I sent about the summer ride in RP. Obviously a youngcouple in love, alone on a boat together are going to want to do other things than log-on to BR.

    Take the bikes off the back of the boat and go for a ride of course!

    Close, but no cigar!

    I was on a tall ship in the Balearics, the boyfriend was still in Brizzle (poor lad wouldn't have fitted any of the bunks) - I was being a hard-working volunteer dirty deckhand for a week. Scrubbing, sanding, painting, climbing (rigging!), rope-pulling, skinny-dipping, handing/stowing/setting sails, but sadly no splicing and certainly not of the main brace. A fair bit of boozing though while we had shore leave.

    This was with the Tall Ships Youth Trust (http://www.tallships.org/) - it's a world away and I always have an awesome albeit tiring time. Still feel a little drunk though, I keep swaying - not yet regained my land-legs.

    You were getting preparations in the last time I saw you with the wobbling you were doing on your bike as you left Mud Dock :oops:

    Time for another one next week?

    Cool! I sailed on a tall ship for two weeks with the STA many years ago - a ship called the Malcolm Miller. An awesome and gruelling experience....

    Linsen - the very same, STA is now TSYT :)

    There's more climbing to be had now that their main tallship is a square rigger :D Sadly they're trying to sell the other one so it's out of circulation, and they're running Challenger yachts instead. Boo.

    Redvee I wasn't that bad once I'd actually unlocked the thing and packed myself up :P

    Next week? Hrm, maybe, definitely maybe...!
