Re: Recommendations for really hot weather bike gear.

Thanks for all the replies, there is some really useful information here. The first time I rode to Portugal I didn’t even think about what to wear because there was not the variety of gear. I had a pair of jeans, a pair of cheap waterproof trousers, combat boots, ex army heavy denim shirt and a Bels...

Re: Peak district

Yesterday and today, popular tourist areas rammed and lots of organ donors out on bikes. Still keep to the minor roads and lanes and things are fine. I suppose a lot of people are making the most of what they think may be their last few days of furlough. Shame really I have rather enjoyed the empty ...

Recommendations for really hot weather bike gear.

Having gone out for a bumble in the Peaks today and found my old HG Tuareg jacket and Hood jeans just about wearable, what do people wear when it is really hot? Assuming that we are not back in lockdown by the. I am aiming to get the ferry to Spain in August then ride down to Portugal and then to No...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

I think the current Tory party’s main aim is to stay in power in order to fulfil the desires of its extremely rich members and donors. The headlong push to deliver a hard Brexit to preserve their offshore tax havens, regardless of the consequences for the economy in the light of Covid 19, is a clear...

This is what my delightful local MP has posted on her Facebook page. It is no wonder people hate the Tories.

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

My point about schools is that there is a world of difference between individual schools and the government does not seem to recognise that. Boris blaming the unions and shouting ‘schools’ at Kier when he could not think of an answer to Keir’s questions does not help. To my knowledge and I could be ...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

It is the same with so many things. The elite in government really are the elite and have no concept of what life is like for millions of people in this country. This is why it took a young footballer to convince them to give free school meals to children over the holidays, because he understood the...

Re: CCM GP 450 bits

If you want to collect the filter you can have it. Just drop me a PM when you thin’ you are likely to be around, I am furloughed at the moment so I am about most of the time.

Heidenau K60 120/80 18 for sale

The tyre is new but has been sat in my dry garage for two years. It was intended for my CCM but when I replaced that heap of junk with a Himalayan the rear tyre is a different size. Keep thinking I will get another bike that it will fit but that seems unlikely now, so it’s up for sale. £50 collected...

CCM GP 450 bits

Hi, having a bit of a clear-out and came across a couple of bits off my GP450. A pair of pillion footpegs and a pair of front mudguard stays. The laughable coating which CCM puts on them has all but disappeared and they were replaced under warranty, hence I still have the originals. They need a clea...
