    I just watched the one where she crosses the border into Russia, I think I’ll give a few more of those a go when I get time.

    Yes, I might start doing a bit of binge watching. She's got some nerve that's for sure.

    Definitely, theres no way I would go to some of the places she has been alone, although I would love to go to those places… if that makes any sense

    I'm an average cyclist, I have a Trek that is fabulous and I do 30/40 miles when I go out for a ride. Yesterday I went from Long Eaton into Nottingham and down past City Ground to Radcliffe Upon Trent and on to Cotgrave, Plumtree, Tollerton and home via West Bridgford. Can anyone recommend similar type rides bearing in mind I do like the Gotham, East/West Leake areas? Thanks

    Still need to see harsher punishments for those that kill on the roads.

    I watched that video before. I liked the bit where it's written into the insurance that the onus is on the driver to prove any accident wasn't their fault.

    Had a steady saunter out today on one of the old push irons.

    Trying to thin down the collection but it’s difficult to decide which ones to sell on.

    The word „GOAT“ is bandied-about all too often., especially in motorcycle racing.

    But if you’re a MotoGP fan, then this imminent announcement regarding the future of one rider in particular, might be worth paying attention to:

    https://the-race.com/motogp/valentin...irement-today/

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    — Joe Strummer

    That British MotoGP at Donington Park.

    I have never been so thoroughly soaked through as I was that day, but it was a privilege to be there and watch Vale‘s utterly dominant win in frankly abysmal conditions.

    I'm not normally one for superlatives but he is an absolute legend. Easily the GOAT as not only did he constantly push new boundaries and raised teams to the top but he puts so much back into the sport through his teams, sponsorship, training and just giving his time to aspiring riders. Yes, he pushed too far at times but the fact he lived on the edge for so long is a tribute to him.

    I thought he'd retire when he struck (entirely not his fault) his mate Simoncelli (RIP) but to come back from that and carry on at the sharp end for so long is again testament to not just hus ability on a bike but his all round legend.

    I remember seeing him over 20 years ago at the NEC bike show, I was only about 12 and he looked like a streak of grey haired piss, never would you believe he'd go on to achieve what he has.

    The Doctor, The Legend.

    Nice tribute here from the Guardian:

    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/20...e_iOSApp_Other

    For what it’s worth, I agree with Andy; Valentino - still the only man to win 125cc, 250cc, 500cc and MotoGP World Championships - is the Greatest of All Time on two wheels.

    Ciao, Vale! And thank you for all the memories.

    Kin ell.

    I’ve seen some front end tucks, but that one was at speed. Hope he’s OK!

    Not done much sniffing around for a while but today I found a nice 1970’s Raleigh Transit 3 Speed. Should be going to look at it in the next few days, it’s a nice example of a classic town bike

    Out on the ye olde Hercules today, 15 miles and a bit of radio DXpedition in between.
    I upgraded the rear sprocket on this to a 22T, for a 3 Speed it’s not a bad hill climber.

    The bike is 39 years old, the wheels I replaced are from 1963, still going strong with a service!

    That is a beauty, side-pull brakes, it’s not going up hills I’d be worrying about, it’s comings down them!

    Haha, not sure if you’ll remember this from years ago but steel rims squeal as you brake when they get wet. Buffering the brakes down a hill gets you noticed

    Just been for a blast round the city, down from the hills and back up again.

    A nice leg-stretcher too, in glorious sunshine, and 23 degrees.

    I did notice as I passed it, that the Mercedes-Benz Arena currently - and temporarily - is now the ———— —— Arena, with all the Merc branding covered-up; this is because tomorrow night, Die Nationalelf are in town to play Armenia, and as the team are sponsored by Volkswagen, when they play here in Stuttgart, all the Mercedes-Benz signs have to be covered up, as it’s a „clash of Sponsors“.

    What nonsense.

    That is nonsense.

    There is so much sponsoring around everywhere you look I’m at the point I don’t read or notice any of it. A big billboard with “Nike” on it could be a plain brick wall, it just all fades into the urban background.
