Quite apart from the erudite smut, and the smutty erudition, there are real live experts on here about a massive range of subjects - people who tell you amazing things in a way that never seems to be "talking down". I have some very good friends as a result of joining YACF and its predecessor, many of whom are about the same age as my kids. That is something I cherish.

I think we should organise some more forum rides.

Alas, I am far, far away from Marsh Gibbon.

"Sarreguemines Saunter" has a certain ring to it.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

How about a get-together for those of us on the west side of the Irish Sea?

I think as many of us as possible should ride the Dunwich Dynamo, however overcrowded and spoilt it may be.  We used to practically own that ride (in terms of total numbers, we probably beat D*lw*ch P*r*g*n).

One day, we'll all be too old.  I'll be 50 this year ffs!

Especially if you're familiar with the hills over that way. Nice country, though:



Good cycle path along the Sarre, too.

Oh you young thing. I rode my first PBP at 60. ;D

That's reminded me - it's 40 years since first heard of AUK and joined up - double SR and PBP in '79. That'd take me a couple of years now!

Among other things, threads like the Sandy Denny one. The postings are reminders of what had been forgotten and/or disregarded, and pointers to the unknown.
