London Pico-tour

Posted on September 27, 2013 at 6:30pm 11 Comments

So I was in the UK and had hired a bike to ride an audax ride. I had a few relatives who lived within a reasonable riding distance to said audax ride and I had investigated riding routes to the homes in case I needed to make use of them. What I found was that I could ride the vast majority of the way out of London on NCN1 (National Cycle Network route 1) which was along, mostly, canal tow paths…

So I was going to the UK...

Posted on September 26, 2013 at 8:23am 6 Comments

...and as any self-respecting randonneur would do, I checked the Audax UK website for rides and there was one starting at 08:00 only 50 mins by train from London Liverpool St which happens to be a mere 2km ride from my brothers flat. Next, bike....? Can I hire a road bike or will I have to get my bro's 80s steel MTB road…

Adventures With Babies and Bikes of a Ladies Persuasion

Posted on August 28, 2012 at 10:13pm 6 Comments

As any self-respecting cyclist would do upon the news that their first child was on the way, I immediately started investigating ways of transporting kids with bikes. As it was not urgent, I also monitored the large UK based internet stores for specials at the same time. I snagged a good trailer for cheap from Chain Reaction Cycles. However, one of my most enduring childhood memories is of my mum putting a 4-5 year old Si on the bus into town (in a small city in the UK) and my dad meeting me…

Si, what's the story of this pic? Specifically the sign on the cyclist on the right. Is it a parade? A demo? Or a normal day's peak hour commute in a wintry UK??

It was an anti cruise missile demo in Norwich, UK, circa 1979. My Dad (captain on the trike) was secretary of the Norwich Peace Council). Apparently (I was only 5-6 or something), we were put at the front so as to keep a nice slow pace and probably for a bit of novelty value. The picture was on the front page of the local rag.

My mum cannot remember who the other cyclist is, if she ever knew him anyway. The sign would have been something to do with peace, no cruise missiles, yanks go home or something similar.

It was our family transport (along with individual bikes) for about four years though. No car.

Good stuff. Damn Yanks!

Peace, dude.

Repeat re your wife and the Spit -

Bad news re the Spit Si.
Was that about 7.20 on Tuesday?
My daughter got a lift into school then and was a few cars back so she saw "a bike accident" ( lots of cars stopped but a 4x4 drove off??) if you need a witness.

I also see that the "lip" between the level of the table drain and level of the road just after the bridge has been fixed. Well I glanced at it today and it looked better.
Anyway hope all is good and if you need that extra witness.....

Yes it was a sloppy bit of work that looked nasty.
I know that pain of a good graze.

Hi Si, did you do the Oppy? I didn't. It looked like an interesting idea.

Howdo, checked the shed, and with three new pairs of pads plus the new set bought at close to the unit price of gold, I think I am ok for the time being. Thks again.

Hi. I have a goal to do a 300 this year and I think I remember that you do also. Have you done that yet? I've had a look at the cal and can see one on 19 Nov and 30 Dec. I'll be out of town on 30 Dec so am vaguely aiming for a crack at the 300 on the 19 Nov. Cheers.

Ok, might see you on the 1st. 

Just realised my last reply was a comment to myself. Doh! 

Ciao
