Sadly missed---an aspirational legend to us newer and less capable audaxers.

Sam Elliott made a brilliant Lee Scoresby

Agreed.  One thing that film got right.

I am about an hour away from completing my bike build (bleed brakes, check gears and sort bars/shifters before bar tape) but I have also left my car at Witham Station so later works for me.

Arts and Entertainment / Re: RIP David Bellamy

Saw him live twice. Once when I was at school and he came to our British Association of Young Scientists group. Very inspirational, made me consider his course at Durham (although in the end I didn't do biology and wouldn't have got in there anyway) and once, many years later when he was getting political. Much of what he said was good sense, but I did disagree with some of his solutions.

But the world will be a duller place without him.

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

I believe Rannulph Fiennes is there. Very good speaker and rather funny. Saw him in Cambridge a few weeks back. If you get a chance go see him.

Cheers

I went last year, it was good. I'm going this year... Not sure which day.
Lots of talks included in the ticket price of about £10.
There are 90 Min work shops you can pay extra for.
There are lots of tour operators there organising trips all over the place. Also some stalls selling I remember a few selling books

On The Road / Re: The Rise (and Fall) of the Suburban Main Battle Tank
« Last post by road-runner on Yesterday at 08:22:45 pm »
I will add that I agree too as I see in Slovakia what the future could otherwise be in the UK. Over here I wouldn say that by and large (by which I mean about 95%) of cyclists now ride on the pavement. As a road rider I get hooted at often. Road deaths here are approximately 3 times those in the UK, albeit here the population is only 1/12th of the size of the UK.

The arguments presented above really require not just laws to make such large domestic vehicles less desirable but also a change in national culture, like happened with smoking, so that by far the majority do not want suburban battle tanks being on the school, office and shop runs.

I won't tell my son I haven't done one since I was 16!
Is it possible to do one simultaneous equation? I thought that wasn't the point? ;D
