I have finally a new a Garmin Edge Explore which is a very good bit of kit and even connects to my mobile. 64 miles yesterday which seem to be about my limit theses day as I do not get to ride as much but luckily not have get fit to shoot due to not shooting . Getting a bit ######ed off at times with mainly electric de limited Mtb’s when you get passed like you a not even moving. 

 

Didn't have Richard Douglas sitting on it by any chance....:grin:

I haven't seen any E-Bikes round this way unless they're being sneaky and hiding everything in the frame as checked at the Tour De France. Wouldn't take much to build up a decent assist for that last 100 yard sprint at the finish....:rolleyes:

I am all 4 ebikes if it gets people out in the fresh air and being active. The latest Giant roads bikes are good for about 4 hours riding. Not a fan of the moded ones doing silly speeds.

Like I said, get some neatsfoot oil from a horse shop turn the saddle upside down and liberally dose the rough underside rubbing it in with your fingers. Leave to soak in then apply more. Inbetween doses stick it back on the bike and get your big ass bouncing on it.

it will be a monumental battle but eventually your butt will win...👍

Bought William a bike for his birthday and as Halfords we’re having a bit of a sale ended up getting all the kids new bikes. Took all my willpower not to buy a very nice Boardman SLS which had £400 knocked off it....😳
