It's not Awoowoo any more :'(

My Amvee arrived this morning. There were also 3 packages from China, so the postie brought the whole lot up and handed it to me. Saves me going down to the mailbox.

Seems to me the paper is slightly different. A bit more mat, less glossy. It's probably cheaper but I actually think it's an improvement.

More like a padded insert ??

I think the printing (font? colour? background?) is clearer and it's overall much easier to read. There's certainly less grey on grey.

Ah, so it's not just me. I like the matt.

Why thank you! It's that lovely sound of tyres on wet road after a shower. That constant zzzziiiippppp sound as you cycle through another puddle.

The Mayo 200 is a fabulous route, very wild countryside but not too far from towns. It's also reasonably flat for north Connacht. I'd recommend it any day, I can't guarantee you'll have a storm to go with it.

Great crossword, and am having fun both trying to complete it AND fantasising about how to spend the £50 Wiggle I'm almost certainly not going to win, but it's all fun.
Now then: am I correct in thinking there's an error in the clue to 31 across? Clue says 20 letters but there is space for 21 letters?
Amirite?
Besides, it wouldn't be audacious if success were guaranteed.

Yes to Shugg.  Also, there are two or three others (I think) where the number shown needs to be divded (3,3 instead of 6).  It's all to do with self-sufficiency!

Surely a truly self-sufficient crossword would be one in which you made up your own clues and answers?  ;D

I remember my father used to do a crossword called the 'skeleton' where there were no black squares, you had to fill those in yourself.
It's not dark yet but it's getting there.

I presume the words were already in there.

No, but you get clues, in the normal fashion.  You get these puzzles in publications such as "Puzzler".  (I bet that's the first time I've written a sentence with three "pu's" in it!)

September issue has dropped. A great range of article topics again, well done to the writers/editors.

One minor issue is the Komoot advert includes a discount code (yay) which expired in June (boo).

Latest is a marked improvement IMHO in terms of content and the design/layout  :thumbsup:    Slightly surprised at the relatively few adverts - that's good if it can be sustained from a financial perspective.

Drop me a pm with your email address and I send you a komoot invite. This will give you the same (choice to have a free region enabled)

Joe North on Biking Bounty - genius. Makes me wonder if I should take the Camper Longflap on every ride, rather than the Pendle...

Thank you to all the team that make Arrivee possible - what an accomplishment with so little resource.  I hope to have the time to one day help and contribute.

Does anyone know general timeline for when the electronic version will be uploaded to https://audax.uk/join-us/arriv%C3%A9e-magazine/?  Some friends are keen to see my article  ;D

Has the picture I took on the A7 as we hammered it towards Longtown been used?
Trying to draft with a pheasants head bouncing around is amusing.

Conspicuous absence of a recipe for badger, I noticed...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Ah it's the one when I pulled out to get a good photo of it hanging there.
Bit worrying I can't remember which photo Jo asked to use only a couple of months ago...
