Re: Worlds ** spoiler** ( not the official one)

Lovely cows in all stages of life and death. No pics, but is this not the land of Old Peculiar, and my personal favourite... Black Sheep? I believe the men's race passes through Masham , where Black Sheep and Theakston brewery are based. Black Sheep was founded by a former director/ owner of Theaks...

Re: The sound of silence

the thing I really dont get with bike noises, other than I try to mostly put up with them and they go away eventually :) but on my cycle cam videos it always sounds like my bike is dragging along a bag of rusty nails, like the hub bearings are totally shot to bits (which they could well be going tha...

Re: Your rants here.

I'd have just shouted - quicker and you don't take a hand off the bars - banging on vans is a shortcut to roadrage. yeah but can they hear you ? whilst I know banging on vans is really really bad idea I have been tempted to give some of these numpties overtaking me lately a good slap on the side or...

Not as annoying as being spammed by lastminute.com who took £1200 then failed to provide the flights we thought we'd booked. OK, the refund was promptly issued, but now I have to find out how to unsubscribe to emails I don't remember agreeing to receive. GRRR! its weirder when you receive a text me...

Re: Commuter Conundrum

On my commute it's unbelievable the amount of ladies riding with see thru leggings. Surely you have some idea? . but how would you know ? unless the material seems really that sheer to begin with, why would you expect it to be see thru in the seating area, if its not that see thru on the front and ...

Re: Things you have recently learnt

That the average North Sea cod is 53kg when caught. would have thought 5.3kg would have been more average,as 53kg would be the max they grow to, a 15kg one on rod and line boat angling is considered a big fish nope according to the internet, 53kg is the average https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanti...

Ready grated? Wossa matter wid u? Do you buy prepped mashed potato as well? Jeez. Or. Cheese. I used to feel the same way, would religiously end up always scraping some flesh off my knuckles grating a bit of cheese block thinking how better I was for not buying grated cheese for doing it :) and the...

how you make cheddar cheese, and Id accept its the quality or rather lack of it, that doesnt melt properly and ends up as some weird plasticised crunchy devoid of moisture version Also, why does the ready grated stuff not melt as well as when you grate it yourself (even when it's the same make)?

Just seen this on the Guardian. Now, obviously this nutter should be caught, prosecuted and banged up, but this is probably going to get undue media attention now in relation to other violent crimes committed by arseholes who were not on a bike. Even when you watch the video, it comes up with a sug...

Re: Tour of Britain 2019

Local authorities have to financially bid to get a stage of the TOB, although in Wales the funding generally comes from the assembly. Tv revenue is essential for the teams but the local authority hosting the stage relies on income generated by roadside viewers and those attracted to the area by the...

Re: Tour of Britain 2019

Is it worth watching? Nice scenery but otherwise it has been dire. There must be some more selective routes in southern Scotland and Northern England.

Until you ruined it. :D tbf the way the stage was being trailed, Chaves was even telling Eurosport it was the Queen stage of the race,I was expecting a bit more than that,I saw the start, went out for a 3hr ride, c...
