    Afternoon all.
    My local is less than 100 yards away...
    How many inches is that?

    From the living room to the fridge is not 100 yards.
    Perhaps Mrs BBG wheels him around in a trolley.

    ...and when he falls out of it inebriated...

    inches? yards? this is bb, not some outpost of reactionary cakestopists

    metric is best, especially since the agreement to redefine and drop the lumps of metal
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    I pleased to say I have 5 pubs within 5 minutes walk and only frequent one of these occasionally with eldest son and the dog when walking at night. What I class as my normal local is about 5k away which is either a pedal there and wobble back or son's taxi service. Any way on an even better note managed to wobble home tonight without getting squished in the 5% chance of rain that has fallen most of today around here, on a low note I got absolutely drowned.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Twunt landlord would switch to metric half-litres if he could. Oh, hang on he did. Pint= 568ml. As my grandad used to say “ could you get a double whisky in that pint?” And when the landlord said OK, he’d say “then fill the censored up with the beer I’ve paid for”.

  • Paradise. Great beer, curry and the people ain’t bad. Bostin.
    Oh, and for the cycling freaks: you are out into the excellent cycling world of Shropshire and beyond. Bridgnorth an easy pedal, Bishops Castle and Craven Arms a bit further. The Wrekin and the Long Mynd.
    Sounds good to me. And TLW1 s covers blown :wink:

    I’m north of all of them, but all possible from mine as well as into welsh wales - route to Anglesey via Bala is a favourite

    Yes decent run with the running club in town, recording for an exceptionally small time a pace of 3.03 min miles
  • pinnopinno Posts: 41,955
    Then there's something definitely wrong.

  • I got to get myself up there: a good long walk up Long Mynd, Stiperstones, Wrekin, all good. Miss that part of the world lots. Don’t do so much riding as I have problems breathing. But will carry on getting out there.
    Best memory of Long Mynd: the utter silence up there. You get up a hill in Hampshire and the flipping RAF are buzzing round it, or a flyBe going into the airport.

    Got a chest infection in September. Then a cough, which I still have. Did some riding in October and couldn’t move. Can’t push it, so can’t really ride. Got an inhaler for after exercise, like Chris Froome I said to Dr and he looked at me like a freak. Ho hum.
