This is clearly all complete lies as they have only just released the Nokia 3210 in the North.

  • What about the midlands?

    Or can I just claim the best of bits of each?
  • In any case, it's just the South vs Very South divide - we're tougher, faster and longer up here :wink:

    According to the statistics, an average recreational (non-commute) ride in the north lasts for 2hr 21mins and covers 24.61 miles, while an average ride in the south takes less time (2hr 17mins) but covers an extra 0.2 miles.

    Cyclists in the south consequently travel 0.62mph faster than their northern counterparts.

    You're all fat pie eaters up north by all accounts then :P

    No, we just have hills, on average 398m more climbing and less time spent stood still at traffic lights.

    Nah, worst of both, as if the accents weren't bad enough!
    I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.
