I'm purely being practical. I'm so slow I might not get to the pub until closing time.

What Carlos means is:

"I'm purely being practical lazy.'  ;D ;D

You have all day to get there..

Despite enthusiasm shown on Wednesday evening I won't be joining you for the Saturday gravel adventure.

Audax / Re: Liz Creese
« Last post by HK on Yesterday at 11:07:28 pm »
This is very sad news. I was fortunate enough to meet Liz several times in my early days of Audaxing - when Rocco was also still around - and even to spend a pleasant evening in their home at the end of a 300km ride some years ago.  Truly, one of the AUK legends.

I will also post this request on the AUK forum but if anyone feels that they would like to share some memories of Liz (or even write a suitable obituary) for Arrivee, please PM me.

Try either Willesden CC or Robert Fry. You need someone who goes back a long way as Liz hasn’t ridden for almost 20 years and not many of her contemporaries are left. eg Rocco, Neville Chanin, JJ etc

Ray Kelly or Mark Brooking perhaps.

Giraffe might be a better bet. He rode with Liz & Rocco a lot.

OT Knowledge / Re: Inversely proportional to square root

my on-the-go method of converting miles to km - multiply by 1.5 and add a bit

for reverse calculation - multiply by 2/3 and subtract a bit

very easy and good enough to get a good idea about the distance

Arts and Entertainment / Re: What was the last film you watched?
« Last post by Kim on Yesterday at 09:50:56 pm »
I was trawling through catch-up TV when I, ahem, came across Channel 5's offering of 'Come Play With Me', a 1977 "sex comedy".

Some formerly big names. A window into a former time.

An utterly unredeemed pile of steaming excrement. It was so bad I felt embarrassed for the UK. It wasn't even bad enough to be funny [/comedy], and as for sex...
[/titillation]

Sound, cinematography, script and, er, acting were all abysmal. Many 'performers' appeared to be pissed. The only thing that kept me skimming through it (I couldn't face actually watching it) was curiosity as to whether it could get any worse.

It could and did.

Channel 5 getting back to their roots, then...

What was he saying, given that he was a denier?

This was 77 or 78, and he was actually talking about CO2 output as being harmful, rather loudly.
