Re: Gear of the Year (so far)

I haven't worn 'em in anger yet (weather's been too warm!) but I got these "Crane" bike trousers from Aldi's last week - £59.99 down to £12.99, bargain!

Re: wrist supports ?

I had one of those blue supports for my right wrist 18 months ago when I fractured it again, it was OK for driving a car but I couldn't get on with it on a bike; but I didn't remove the metal strip. I found that one of the "wraparound" ones, I think it was from Sports Direct or somewhere, worked bet...

Re: Wanker / Bitch...

Good call, Andy! I was fine about it at the time, just thought about it later at home and it wound me up ;)

I've had the odd pedestrian step out in front of me over the years, never felt the urge to run 'em over to bloody-well show 'em!

You're spot on about the car driver rants I'll bet :)

Cut a long story short, I ride to work through my town, 12 or so miles each way and there's temp traffic lights about in the first mile and a half of my ride, that lead up to a mini-roundabout where you can go straigh...
