    Bloody cyclists are a nightmare. Used to be this time of the year you'd get a tailback on the road and it would be a tractor, now its these lycra clad wankers who all think they are on the Tour De France.

    I don't mind them but where we have a house in Blighty it's country lanes and hill's perfect for cycling. Get plenty of them together training in a group my mischievous nature comes out every now and then. If I'm on my motorbike yesterday i was out and past a group of over 10 cyclist on a fairly big hill. Tactics follow for about 30 seconds just sputtering on the edge of the power band, pass whack the throttle open and leave a nice trail of 2 stroke smoke behind.
    Feck the environment.

    ^ brilliant.

    Head up to Macclesfield, look for a lanky guy in a blue Etihad t-shirt with his arse in the air riding a white Decathlon racer and smoke him out. There's a few beers in it for you

    Uncongested clear open roads today on account of a ruddy great dam threatening to burst and wipe out Southern Manchester.
    Not to be deterred by such frivolity as floods and closed roads I sadled up and headed for the hills..









    Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

    A few more from the weekends ride...

    Thought this was a calf at first, then a fluffy sheep.
    Turns out it was a goat, will make someone happy on here...




    Plenty of lucious blackberries about , handy if ones energy levels are dropping...



    What's that unusual green thing?


    Stopped off at a country boozer for a traditional meal, not bad value for a fiver...

    Some pics from my windy ride along the North Wales beach front last week....






    Lunch from the best chippy in Rhyl and a view of Punty's digs...


    Sustenance ravenously consumed then onwards for the Great Orme. ..


    Ridiculously strong head wind...


    A magnet for cyclist ..


    At last, Llandudno and the great Orme. ..

    The Pier


    Crabs anyone?


    Lots of history,museums and international tourists in Llandudno, worthy of a thread on its own.



    Didn't ride up the Great Orme as I was shattered with the head wind.
    Maybe next time.

    ^Lovely English scenery, Chitty. It looks like you get around quite a bit on your bike. Fish and chips is a distant memory of mine as is going down to the local pubs. Bravo photo thread, lad.

    Hoping for a late Summer and today was rewarded with a gloriously 20oC.

    ^^Yum, sweetcorn. Pretty flowers too.
    How's the weather in the UK? Fall is in full swing now here, leaves just changing, and it gets quite cold at night now. Winter will be here soon

    The weather was dry but in single figures today, so decided to double skin up and head for the hills.

    2 hours of country roads and thundering thighs...


    These canal barges are great in Summer but the other seasons, no thanks...


    Autumn is here and these friendly free range Turkeys don't know what's in store next month...

    Hoping this isn't my last ride out this year...

    ^Great pic, CC. The canal is pretty even in the fall. We got snow here already last week, EEK!
    I talk to my cousin often who lives in Darby and he isn't ready for winter either!
