    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    Ditto on the birthday wishes!

    "The bicycle, in the hands of a novice, is as alert and acute as a spirit-level in the detecting of delicate and vanishing shades of difference in these matters. It notices a rise where your untrained eye would not observe that one existed; it notices any decline which water will run down." -Mark Twain, "Taming the Bicycle"

    Many thanks for the birthday wishes--No ride today for two reasons. Bit wet over here and the wind is a bit too strong. Your Snow storm on the North East coast is coming over to us in the form of lots of rain and very high winds. Had flooding since before Christmas locally and 60 mph winds are not helping.

    However--The family and I did get out to Friston Forest- out local MTB area- for a walk. There was a lull in the rain this morning and the wind dropped to something of a stiff breeze. Don't know what happened to the mountain bikers but we were in the forest up to our ankles in mud and debris and only saw a couple of bikers. One couple were out on their "New" bikes and were moaning about the mud. As Ross-My son-in-Law and I both asked- "What Mud"? Bad for walking but MTB's should manage it and to prove it we asked if we could try their bikes. They agreed and took bthe bikes up what both of us would agree was a stiff slope and managed to get traction. Experience counts and I could see the line that would give grip but after 300 yards we had had enough and turned round for the downhill. It is not easy riding in welly boots and full outdoor clothing but that downhill was fun. Or it was till I tried to stop at the bottom and locked the brakes. Quick release and carry on but the holly bush took a beating.

    So I did get a birthday ride but next job is to get the MTB roadworthy again- or is that trailworthy- and find out how soft a TomBay is on mud. Might leave that for a couple of weeks though till the rain and wind are supposed to end.

    Happy birthday, Stapfam. Yes, those of you with good mud riding skills, (motorcycle or mtb), will continue to be a mystery to those of us who can only watch.

    Glad you were able to get out with you family on your birthday. Hope this year is a banner one for you.

    Hopefully it will get lost in transit.

    Not too bad really, you just have to watch for the rocks that are hiding at the bottom.

    Happy Birthday!
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.
