    Nice one, find any Viking swords?

    Anything but rain is good,sick of the stuff.

    Did you get fitted out for that bicycle or purchased it youself with correct sizing from the shop?
    Reason i ask is the seat seems abnormally high in adjustment to the frame.
    I'm no bicycle expert (thankfully) but i always assumed the correct fit frame wise was very important for long term comfort.
    Nice pics of the Dales by the way.

    This is the most important - and easiest - setting on whatever frame size

    Another day,another ride out.
    Starting to enjoy this "social distancing" ,it's giving the planet a well earned break also.

    That photo of Ashton market reminded me of John Kilbride, taken from there by Myra Hindley and Ian Brady. He was about the same age as me, and at the time I had a Saturday job at Grey Mare Lane market.

    Certainly was a lot faster and easier when I dug out an allen key and adjusted my seat 5mm .

    I used to live in Ashton. Sunday nights were like Ibiza down there.

    Apart from the GMP riot vans parked at each end of the main drag.

    ^Yum!

    Nice pics, CCC! It looks so warm there compared to here.
    I got my bike tuned up and all ready to take out. The highest temp here has been about 10 C which was today. I hope to get mine out very soon.
    Your pics remind me of my year I spend in England (Bedford) in 2005. Is your bike a racing one?

    Thanks MM,

    It's nice to escape the madness for a few hours in the fresh air and sun.
    Make the most of your locale and get peddling.
    It's great for your health as you well know.

    You posted up some great cycling pics last year and have been missed from the forum.
    Ignore your fan club and leave them to fight like rats in a sack in the dog house.
    It's a racing bike or road bike as they're called recently although I don't partake in much racing

    Look forward to your pics in the future.

    Oh and naff off Cyrille.
