Re: A cautionary tale and a learning curve

Makes me wonder if I have just been lucky to date with my tubeless tyres. I don't use them on my summer bike but will be back on my winter bike shortly. I do now have some plugs to carry with me. I discovered a few years ago that my pump had seized, fortunately whilst at home. I had probably been ri...

Restarting TOGs

I'm sure like many others I've been wondering when TOGs rides might restart as it is a long time since the last TOGs ride back in March.

Re: Lockdown leads to some different but enjoyable routes

Charlotte and I rode the track to Bishop Auckland some years ago.

Re: Fundraising by my grandson

Alan, I'm sorry to hear about your grandson's condition. This is a novel and personal way to raise money for a good cause - and he's nearly reached his target. Hopefully some more members will click through to read about your grandson's challenge and make a donation.
