    I've often wondered how it seems the lighter (and thereby more expensive) bike someone has, means the heavier (and thereby tougher) lock that's needed. If so, is there some sweet spot in the bike vs lock weight ratio?

    I tried to delete it but you are too quick.

    Why does the forum constantly lock me out?

    I have to log in every time I try and do something. It's trying to tell me something.

    Of course not Graham. I was just trying to provoke as usual.

    I love all forumites and think they are amazing!

    I also often log in, draft a post and then, at the point I actually try and post it, find I'm logged out and have to log in again . Also sometimes little edits to posts get an error message that I've used insufficient digits or something or other. I also mostly log in using my phone and, having posted something, find for some reason (something to do with use of apostrophes coupled with mobile phone use I think) I have a bunch of capital 's with funny hats on that I have to go back and edit out.

    Life's difficult enough without all of these hurdles

    As for running I'm trying like 'flipping flip' to get back running but my right knee is not yet playing ball...

    Cav back with a 3rd place yesterday, just behind Sam Bennett.
    Some decent sprinters behind him.

    The Wolfpack messed up their finish which was even more surprising as Bora made a complete pigs ear of theirs.

    I initially thought that Sam Bennett was leading out Cavendish, who couldn't quite get there, and then left himself too much to do to overhaul Philipsen of Alpecin-Fenix.

    I have also been watching the Basque Tour with has been great so far.

    I think that stage races are more exciting to watch than they have been for a long time. Mainly due to riders such as Pogacar, Roglic, Alaphillipe, Sagan, van de Poel and van Oert who are all happy to "race" rather that sit behind their mates all day!
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    One day races as well - as we saw in the Tour Of Flanders. Who would have thought?
