Realising that I am about to hit a brick wall of boredom and start having Vietnam flashbacks again whilst at work, I got a thinking about how there must be another way...

Can we please make a Retrobike commune?

We could all take turns in doing the chores and grow our own monster munch and cake and all bring our own presonal qualities/ skills to the group and share out the time and space to ride and fettle with older bicycles.

That way we could all be happy and ride together all the tme and not go mental in front of a 19inch monitor like I might be about to...

please help...

not a bad idea at all, especially if we had cycle-powered farm machinery.

I've seen just about every cycle-powered device from mowers, threshers etc to smoothie makers and washing machines

There is an issue with your idea ... the whole idea of the commune is the free love fest right, and no offence boys but neither of you are quite doing it for me.. :wink:

Do we really only have 1 female member !

This sounds so mad it may work!

We could all end up like Bear Grylls on bikes! :D
