Re: Spring Ride October 2013

It's a good day, but if you don't get away early at the start it gets very chaotic what with all the seven year olds and viewing of the panoramas. I'd go if we went earlyish in a slow but disciplined group just to make a good and very red point.

Re: Nonbikerelated talking thread. (nsfw)

With wet tarmac and plastic cleats there might be some "outrigger" advantage if your groin was strong enough, but it would only save you from a minor miscalculation in my opinion, and leave you open to 'high siding' (not good). It would also have the effect of actually raising your centre ...
