Re: Riders of Green Lanes pre 1980.

Is there any positive action which can be taken by riders who have only used the road for the last few years? I probably ride it once every two or three weeks. I've only seen the farmer at the one end once and he was fine. Had to make way for a farm vehicle on a couple of occasions at the Priestclif...

Snapseed is ok at processing a photo you already have.

Re: My bike with a castle

More of a fortified tower, but near enough. Scotland a few years ago while doing the Round Britain Rally.

Re: What has the TRF done for you, this year?

I don't think there's any doubt that the TRF does a lot of good. A huge number of members give their time and skills for free to the benefit of members and others. It's crazy that the directors seem to shoot themselves in the foot from time to time. Sometimes through action, or inaction, which I'm s...

Re: What has the TRF done for you, this year?

I presume all "contractors" become so via some kind of open tendering process. If, by some chance, a Director is also contracted (paid) to perform a role I see no problem so long as the process is open and fully accountable. It would be foolish for it to be otherwise. If it is not a legal requiremen...

When you find it difficult to dab a foot down when needed you can pretty much rely on a, hopefully, minor tumble. You certainly get profic...

Re: Is the TRF still worth joining?

Ditto.
Go along and see what you think.
I'm not a big group ride or meeting type of person so that aspect doesn't suite me. However, you only need one person who's willing to show you the ropes. I was lucky and found that person. If I can I now try and do the same. Sadly though, not via the TRF.
