    Have you ever looked at Harry's Garage on youtube? Oh my!

    No, but I have now - thanks

    Not sure I'll get an Espada, however, as the engine is in the wrong place and it's got too many seats. I suppose it might be useful for putting the bike in the back

    Fix a bike rack to the roof with self drilling screws.

    Just a dull old out-and-back 39 miles (2400 feet).

    But can any bike ride be dull? With hail, rain and wind?

    Of course not so... a really stimulating, challenging and satisfying ride which included such pleasures as hail, rain and wind.

    Now, that feels better.

    Marco Marco!

    Lamborghinis are for "look at me, I am empty headed but flash" people. Footballers, drug dealers,..ysecht!

    The only make for a gentleman with gravitas and taste is a Maserati.

    I think I'm about to prove you wrong, Graham, as I prefer Maserati cars

    I have heard, although lacking a Labrador I would not know, that dogs sense when they are on a trip to a vet.

    Today my 20 miles (1200 feet) on Ms Boardman was primarily to confirm a fault I detected some five weeks ago, since when I have not ridden her, before ringing my friendly Halfords to book in for a repair.

    But amazingly for the first 10 miles or so the fault had disappeared! Now how did she know she was shortly to be dismantled? Should I start calling her Regina? (Neither Rex nor Rover being quite right?).

    It was only meant to be a short test ride but it took 10 miles before Ms Boardman relaxed, her deceit was displayed and the fault re-emerged.

    I shall tell Halfords to show no mercy and be ruthless in binning any bits that are past their best and only then will she be welcomed back.

    Sigh. I never have any trouble with Campagnolo.

    With the family at Skegness.
    Yesterday was a Strava 30km heatmap suggestion involved the sea wall path with its sand, extending lead dog walkers and general hazards.
    Today was a straight north on the A52 and back down following the coast. 33km in an hour and a mighty 65m of ascent. Thankfully no hazards apart from a muppet texting a she cut close to me.

    Don't roll with a pig in poo. You get covered in poo and the pig likes it.
