    Can you help?

    I haven't been on the fourum for a number of reasons which I'd rather not go into, though I have been a regular visitor when I've been able to (usually when I can borrow some time on friends laptops!). However, I'm here now and asking for help. Can you spare a few quid to help Macmillan? I'm...

    The big day is almost here.

    I haven't been active on the forum for some time now. As some of you may recall, I have been training for a 300 mile bike ride, from Newcastle to London in under 24 hours. (Well that, and I now have a 6 month old son to add to the seven year old one I already had!). I just thought those that...

In August I'm taking part in an organised event (Ride 24), in which I have to ride from Newcastle to London in 24 hours. That's 300 miles, by pushbike in a day. I'm taking...

    Newcastle to London in 24 hours. By bike. Sponsorship needed

    Just a quick update. Those that sponsored already know, but the charity I was doing this for have backed out of participation in the event. I will now be doing it for Macmillan Cancer Support, and I would still greatly appreciate your support. Adam.

    Plastic mirror mounts - a warning!

    Bloody hell, that could have been nasty. Glad you weren't in there. God luck with the clean up. Adam.
