I'm guessing they're aren't too many hills where you live  ;) Unless you have thighs like Sir Chris Hoy ;D

Flat roads are nice, but you can beat a murderous climb up some steep mountain  ;D

One of me taken back in August after a 45 minute climb, which I'll admit to using the "granny gear" for most of it. Worth it for the views from the top though:

I treated myself to one of these after I unfortunately left my old bike unlocked outside my house overnight. And yes I am aware of the stupidity of this. Suffice to say that only time I have ever not locked my bike was the time it was nicked. Anyway, the new one is lovely. I was a bit concerned at having hydraulic discs on a road bike (I use it for commuting and around town) but they seem fine so far.

Nice one ,Leon . It looks like a road bike apart from the bars , what my mate calls a "flat barred racer" 8)

l have a couple of road bikes myself having given away my all terrain bike because I simply wasn't using it . .

I used to love it when I cycled to and from work , tho' never on a Friday because of too many nutters at home time. . :o

Giles I hope you don't mind but when I clicked on your photo of the bike (a bit too vintage for me) I had a wander through your other photos on photobucket.

Two questions:
1. Was the Adidas trainer photo posed for or did you just spot a lucky line of nice trainers?
2. Dog and the porcupine quills. WTF?

Sorry if I was being too intrusive.

I've also got these two.

MK2 Chopper, 1974 I think:


Raleigh trade bike, not sure about the age (the dog's not keen):

Looks like a fizzy lemon Chopper , one of which I got brand new about 40yrs ago and the other looks like a classic butchers bike , the question being is the dog as fit as a butcher's dog. .

Ha ! Sorry, I am s**te at posting photos and did it in a rush ?Could have been worse I suppose !!
I support FC United of Manchester and they were a group of lads standing next to us, a nice throw back.
F*** knows with the dog ! Years old, think someone sent it to me and as an owner of Staffies, it typified their curious nature !
I`ll get me coat.
