The Pub / Re: You know you're middle aged when

I must be more than past middle age. Today would have been my grandmother's 120th birthday.
She's no longer with us but I'm a little less than half of that.

Middle age: when half your friends are dead.

I'm going to have to change my route, leave earlier, or end up under an Astra van, this bloke is becoming a regular issue, this morning I felt the pannier move as he passed. Either that or trawl the area and torch the damn thing.

Hi Rob
It was very reassuring for me and Tim to have your tracks to follow. We were both worried about the roads icing up beneath us on the run in to Membury. I have a short video clip of you riding through the ford and if you message me on 07815042606 I’ll what’s app it over to you. It was great to team up with you and the other two lads at Membury in conditions that were more akin to winter moutaineering than cycling.

Looking forward to it Shawn and thanks for finding a couple of new controls for the series this year.

Meanwhile see you at 0200 on Saturday.

Back in the '90s in Oz, there was a group of folk racing dogs towing scooters. Apparently it was a good activity for dog mushers who didn't have any snow around. Getting or buying a suitable machine was a bit tough. Search for dog scooters.

I think they said that they use 0.76 as a multiplier on the last completed step, but they also give you credit if you get through part of the next one.
OT Knowledge / Re: USB Powerbank Recommendation

May be a tad big for a phone charger(?), but I have the Anker PowerCore 10000  #1 best seller in 'power packs' on amazon apparently, weighs ~180g, charges on plugging in.  Also have a smaller older 5600mah Anker, which requires a button press.  I primarily bought Anker, as they seem to have a good rep, and to power USB lead bike lights.    Looks like a more expensive newer PowerCoreII is available.

Anyone planning the 200 from Maastricht this weekend? I'm hoping that I can finish this one, ideally with full feeling in my feet...
