I love brussel sprouts, but they do tend to make me prone to the odd "trouser cough". :oops:

However, science may soon have an answer: http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9780000/9780430.stm

I thought a nice quiet 20 miles before dinner would be great.

How wrong was I? I have seen fewer people on the sea front in the middle of summer! Still, got to try out some of my nice new Christmas pressie cycling kit.

Birnbeck, Flatholm (in the mist towards Wales) and Steepholm islands.

Mine,quite short, yesterday's ride.
Here is melting snow and whenever I tried to go off road, I spend most of the time spinning rear wheel in snow,trying to balance as front wheel wanted to go sideways.
Air was 3°C, water was cold :) ,and I was glad,that no one needed mine clothes,boots and bike...
Merry Christmas! :xmas-big-grin:

+1 for the pannier rack brigade :). Just a quick jaunt aboard my sole steed ('95 HardRock Ultra - commuter'd) around the seafront for me, post dinner of course - trying to work off some of that nut-roast, you know? :wink:
