Might just have to get some Lycra, cycling more than 5k in normal shorts is not good for the old chafing issues...... :lol: And the bike seat is bloody uncomfortable, you'd think I'd have enough padding on my arse, wouldn't you?

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I know, I had to bite the bullet and buy some lycra. My cycling shorts have this built-in nappy, which is great when I'm on the bike, but when I'm off it it looks like I've got a camel's toe, hoof and foreleg :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't do lycra, wouldn't want to scare folk!!! I'm not sure I could force myself to spend €200 on a bike Sarah (oooh, shame on me!).

The trouble with bikes is that they dont go sideways when you want them to :thumbdown:

They may not go sideways, but this is very true:

With the price of diesel the way it is at the moment, more cycling seems like a good plan!

still trying, unsuccessfully, to teach my bike to do TOTF or even a bit of leg yielding would be nice - its just so much harder to open gates on a bike - give me a horse any day ....
