You can usually get 2 on the bonnet with good bungies :)

I have a rack I could lend but it is up here

I've managed it before with a blanket chucked over the back seat and one bike with it's wheels stripped off. Sometimes I regret my irrational refusal to buy a hatchback.

How's the arm/shoulder now Gazz?

I've also offered my services to the big fella if he needs a lift up to Dunkeld. Don't worry, we'll not be tootling up in the MX-5 either.

Nah, not yet, I only start physio next week - Range of movement still very restricted, and obviously weak.

I could probably manage a few road miles quite soon :? but hopefully will get out for a proper spin week before Dunkeld.

Got my WW bar for Dunkeld - 125g :) The package was so light I thought it was the decals I ordered.

Also got my Avid levers, advertised as 155g on the CRC site (SD 7), but they actually weight 180g :(

I got back into work today to find that the mailroom had eventually sorted out the last 3 weeks worth of deliveries. Many goodies for me. Amazing how many different shades of red there are though :(

And my pedals I ordered are even heavier than I thought they would be, possibly the heaviest aluminium objects ever. Very grippy though.

Worzel Gummidge has besmirched my honour,so i have to complete this no matter the difficulties

Alright Worzel :wink: You'd better have your bestest banter head on :twisted:
