No, haven't had time to watch much telly lately. Saving it all for a big binge at some point.

I heard about Bowie's appearance. Sounds brilliant!  ;D

pronounced ah-ah apparently

But usually spelled ʻaʻā, from the Hawaiian for stony lava.  I daresay Joe Murray opted for the Anglicised version for simplicity and marketability.

Via Wasdale Head, Styhead and Seatoller: 10 miles less and 100+m climb less. Thank you for the 'heads up', Deano. Worth thinking about, though maybe not on road tyres.

So David Bowie has turned into a giant menacing teapot.  Now I've seen it all.

Citoyen, are you still watching?  What do you make of it?

Dad has a hospital appointment tomorrow.

'Please bring this letter. If you do not have this letter, please contact us on the number above.'

I bet the number ends in "XXXX".

I never looked at the letterhead TBH. Dad has letter so it matters nor.
I know the phone number of that hospital anyway and I'd ring that (and lose the will to live) if needed. Anyway Mum is taking Dad.

This is why I like email, as you can just use "Hi,"

Dear Company Name or dear Department Name 8f you know it.
I've written Dear Ceredigion Council a few times.

The 80's humorous Dear Sir or Mad Man is probably no longer acceptable.

That'd be a much easier start to day 2 - it's a relatively (!) easy run  to Middleton, even bearing in mind the 4 miles uphill from Brough.

Seems a bit previous, though - and I reckon you could shave miles off if you went over Styhead to Seatoller ;D

I am Sec of a local club that has seen its own TT suffer badly because this road is used for at least two local clubs TT, it is a fast course but at what cost? Our course is a much more technical (hilly) course so has slower times.
I don't understand the seeking out of "fast courses" to set a PB on, surely a PB on each course means something?
Very sad for the riders friends and family.

My solution is to never have the pump mounted on the bike, in addition to having the same number of pumps as I have bags.
Works, so far.

A combination of this, and deliberately taking off and frobbing the bike-mounted pumps whenever I clean their associated bikes.

This works because it's the tourer, which gets a proper once-over before big trips, and the Brompton, which is so good at accumulating muck that it wouldn't be allowed indoors without the occasional clean.  Not so good for a commuter bike that follows a regime of concentrated neglect, but those are better off with the pump in the bag anyway.
