the only problem are , it's not me who need to travel but my parents, but £460 for a return ticket Copenhagen- Bangkok is cheap

That's a good deal. I looked at Finnair coming home from Bangkok via Helsinki. Only problem was the stopover was 3 days.

A section of the external skeleton frame of my Vaude Mk II broke last weekend whilst at Thorne.
That's not good news,I hear you say.
Correct.

The good news is that Mr Vaude(a.k.a. Colin) says..
Send the broken piece to us via post & we will send a new one back to you FREE OF CHARGE
Now that's good news
 ;D

So much for a surprise, I was in the middle of booking when I looked over at Peli's monitor. And saw that she was reading something about Eddie doing his 30 marathons in a row run. Then she found out that he is doing a show and her mouse was hovering over the buy ticket bit of the site, so I had to stop her.

A celebration is appropriate.I suggest a tour up & down the country,...somewhere between Glagow-ish & Lands End between now & the end of August ;)

Has a name been chosen for the future TdF winner your grandson?

I know that Gordy's getting on a bit, what with being a grandfather and all, but I don't know whether he's been reduced to riding in a kiddie trailer....  ;)
