gravel fire roads
Believe it or not I've seen fire roads in UK forests, done a fair bit of enduro motorcycling in such places. In my experience they're at least 10 parts earth to 1 part gravel. Sometimes there's a layer of fresh gravel on top but it soon gets scattered and buried by vehicles.

I wonder what happened to the guy who tried to punch Froome?

A shifter's a fair bit more convenient than a velcro strap, especially when you want to stop briefly and do something with both hands (add/remove clothing, take photos, that sort of thing).  I have an auxiliary V-brake on my Streetmachine that I use like a car handbrake (also functions as source of donor parts should I damage a gear shifter mid-tour).  Unless you need it for legal compliance[1], if you're happy with velcro, that's fine too.

Main advantage to having a rear brake on a tadpole trike is for handbrake turns when it's icy.   :demon:

[1] If you've got a setup where a single lever operates both front brakes like barakta and Tigerbiten have, you need the rear parking brake as an independent braking system.

Froome is reportedly not speaking to the press. It's pretty obvious that Geraint wasn't riding for him. Will there be handbags? Geraint struck me as very sheepish in his interview, bigging up Froomey for being the best ever. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when Brailsford tries to restore order.

I have asked a friend for a recommendation, she's an NVQ assessor and says she'll get back to me v. soon

Meanwhile, is the HighSpeedTraining course delivered on the Great Western or East Coast main line?
