  1. Cheers for the advice Paul. I think I'll plump for the quote that I got from pedal cover. It covers me for all my triathlon kit when competing too.
  2. So your insurance for house and your bikes is £800? I got a quote with pedal cover which worked out at £30 a month. I'm pretty eager to get insurance. The bike was a write off so I bought a new one for the same value of 2k. I've had to go through a injury solictitor as the drivers insurance would not entertain me. Still no resolution and its six months since. Very frustrating. I just got cuts and bruises from the crash but I've been suffering with back and neck problems since. The two weeks after the crash was very painful. I understand whiplash is a real thing now.
  3. Been away from the site for a while but its good to see people still keeping this thread alive. Had a crash recently, taxi came out of a side road straight into my 2 month old Cannondale Synapse ultegra. Gutted to say the least. Do any of you guys have insurance for your bikes?
  4. https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/3gvO3/ab/e2l4E3? Hi guys. As I posted earlier I promised Warren I'd raise money in his honour. The proceeds will go to BLESMA and east lancs hospice I'm booked in to compete the outlaw half triathlon which is 1.2 mile swim 56 mile bike and 13mile run in June. Then weeks later I will do the 140 mile coast to coast cycle in one day. Please follow the link https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/3gvO3/ab/e2l4E3?
  5. You seem to meet your fair share of idiot cyclists. Can only think of one instance ive been mad at a cyclist.
  6. I tend to slow down when lights are on red so i can keep rolling till they change so I dont have to unclip. Cant image going back to ordinary pedals.
  7. It might be worth a trip to ewood bikes then. If he can get me what I need for 1k then id rather give it to them than a national co.
  8. I dont mind riding in the wet although im cautious downhill. The rule is stay on tarmac and do not ride over grates or man holes.
  9. I will wait for the 2013 sale. Any good websites or shops that will do good deals? And when will the sale start?
  10. I'm on the lookout for a new bikem looking at the cycle to work scheme. So I have a limit of 1000. any recommendations? It needs to be suited to triathlon to ironman racing. I know 1k is a low budget.
  11. Did the ride with brad 100 miler today. It was torturous with 3000m of climbing. very slow pace
  12. I've got the ride with brad 100mile on sumday. Been on hols for last two week and piled half a stone on. Whoops
  13. Its such sad news. I went to see Warren a few weeks ago. He was still in high spirits and his normal good self. Even near the end, his biggest aim was to leave a legacy. He set up the Wooley foundation. I promised him that I would complete an ironman event in his memory next year. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Wooley-Foundation/177118055790356?fref=ts His life was dedicated to helping others. I feel privileged to have classed him as a friend.
  14. Nice article in the paper... http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/10349742.Tributes_to_inspirational_Colne_football_coach/ Seems he was a very well liked and respected man. Didn't know him myself but he seemed very knowledgable and balanced with his posts. RIP
  15. Perfectly. I used to just wear a cotton hat, but this skull cap is ten times more suitable.
  16. I went sports direct in Blackburn and bought a skull cap, £6 does its job.
  17. Cleared it in 3.56 very strong headwinds for last 20 mile. 5500 feet of climbing too . Tired now
  18. Starting to kick in to cycle season now with quite a few tours and classics going on. Got my first ever sportive on Sunday, called the trial run by the pendle witches I think. 53 miles over pendle and waddington fell...
  19. Re . Wellsprings. They do a two for one menu on tues and Thursdays I think it is. Looking for an Italian for tomorrow night. Has anyone tried that new one on Preston new road at salmesbury?
  20. Went to the Wellsprings in sabden last night. Mexican / Spanish food. Nice atmosphere, brilliant starters , the main meal came and was also very very nice although the rice could have been better on the side. Sangria on tap too!! Had quesadilla for starter and beef burrito for the main. The missus had Chicken wings and chicken fajita. Very generous portions. Was a bit pricey, however it was two for one night so was very reasonable after discount. Well worth a visit. Although next time I go will be on a clear sunny day in summer for the views. (Situated near the top of pendle hill)
  21. In fairness most of my punctures have occurred on Blackburn road in accrington, it's a dirty dirty pot hole ridden road. But I live off it I have a track pump but it has no gauge on it so I generally pump up until I can only just squeeze the tyre in, if you get me. My tyres are two years old would that make a difference. I've tried many different inner tubes. I'm thinking that a tyre change is now needed.
  22. How often do you guys get punctures? I seem to be having loads at least once a month. I'm probably doing 400-500km a month. Is that normal
  23. RIP, what a great mark him and Jack have left on the town.
  24. I went a couple of week ago and received bizarre customer service. Paid at bar and it came to 42.50 so I gave her 50 in notes. Realised I had change in my pocket and said I've got the 2.50, she said it was ok she would give me change, and apologised for having no 5 notes so gave me 7.50 in coins. (had an heavy pocket for the rest of the evening) At the same time I was being served the same lady was pouring a glass of wine for another customer. The customer noticed the glass was dirty and said can she change the glass. Which she did but poured the drink from the dirty glass. Customer was not best pleased and demanded new drink. Other than that the meal arrived very quick and the sirloin was GREAT.

    My names Scott. I am 24 years old. I've been a rovers fan all my life after going to my first game at just six weeks old. My first memories are from the play off final v Leicester at wembley. I remember jack walker walking around the greyhound track talking to fans after the game. Best memories of rovers are that game, winning the title in 95, my first away game at man city (we lost, summerbee scoring) and the league cup win. However my best times as a rover were following the team around Europe (often with people on here) to Salzburg, krakow, Amsterdam, leverkusen and Vilnius. This year is my first year with no season ticket since 2001, but still go when I am not working. I've met some great people on here at both home and away games. I currently work as a retail manager for a well known supermarket. My career is very important to me and the reason I no longer have a season ticket unfortunately. I live in accrington with my fiancée and our 4 month old son. I used to play football a lot until a recurring back injury forced me to stop in 2010. (was part of the brfcs team that played Salzburg, scored two in a 7-3 defeat severly hungover). I now train hard to do triathlons and long distance running as it's not too rigorous for my back.
