    Everything in moderation ... except beer
    Beer in moderation ... is a waste of beer

    If riding an XC race bike is like touching the trail,
    then riding a rigid singlespeed is like licking it
    ... or being punched by it, depending on the day

    Off to Whitby in the van - but not till after the stupidly busy weekend; it's great having 2 weeks off :D:D

    Planning on the moors as usual and Dalby maybe :D
    If every action has an equal and opposite reaction does that mean I will be eaten by a fly?
