Other Activities / Cycling the Danube
« on: January 22, 2011, 12:30:53 PM »
Tor and I are thinking of cycling more of Eurovelo 6 - starting in Germany and following the Danube through Austria to Slovakia. Probably over easter. Expect to take the 11 easter holiday days which will include a couple of rest days. Camping to make it cheaper, either shipping out our bikes or hiring some there. Looking to do about 60 miles per day.

As much Beer, sausage and Sauer Kraut as you can handle along the way.

anyone interested in joining us?

Bullshit and Random Banter / Re-House Noggin toad

Noggin has led the good life in Oxford for some time. He now feels it is time to find a new owner and spread his sticky sweet love.

I propose a competition to win Noggin. I refuse to say what the competition is about or how to win. Post your entries here.

Anyone fancy a long ride? thinking of catching the traing somewhere and cycling back over a couple of days, or train at either end to go somewhere completely different. Camping along the way and sticking to small roads / pretty places.

Up for it - confirm dates

Ive stayed at Gwern gof Uchaf in the Ogwen valley, but wondered if there is anywhere better nearby? I might try the Dolgam campsite simply as I've not been there before. Any views or recommendations?

Other Activities / Tandem bike ride - possibly
« on: February 27, 2009, 12:27:06 PM »
If I win the tandem I am bidding on on ebay does anyone fancy cycling 150 miles with me to bring it home? It's in East Sussex so would be an excellent ride! Be a nice way to christen it too. I'd drive you to the pickup point and then home from oxford afterward :) It would take a weekend with a bivy overnight.

I am going to find the most attractive custom wrestling one-piece yet. something tryuly beautiful for this year. I expect the price to be higher than last year due to the exchange rate. guessing just under the 20 mark.

Bullshit and Random Banter / Things to climb with stupid names.
« on: September 10, 2008, 03:32:45 PM »
Nowadays I choose my climbing by the stupidity of the name of the location or rock feature. This possibly reflects my own stupidity, but hey-ho.

This is a list of places you can climb with stupid names that I'll add to as I remember them. Please add any you've done.

Chocolate finger - stack Devon Coast

Brown Willy - Hill in Cumbria - to get there you skirt round Cat's hole.

The Bitches - St Davids, Wales

Sleazey Corner - Cornwall
