A friend of one has done 8000 mikes this year. He does do a 25 mile round trip to work 4 days a week. No mean feat when it’s shift work having to leave at 4 am.

Can anyone recommend winter gloves for a 5 year old? His poor hands are going white!
Ideally for walking but also able to do his gears on his bike (twist). I’ve ordered 3 different pairs on Amazon that have been useless :facepalm: Needs to be online as I’m back shielding :dead:

Sealskin or Galibier are probably the best within a sensible budget.

Have a look at Hupp racing its mostly kids sized lycra but they may have winter gloves

Think that got the last one. Longleat was very quiet, saw a couple of cyclists and that was it. Did cheat and go down the drive and not up it 😂

Trying to decide on a work stand only cheap infrequent use looks for a good 2nd hand but none around
I've got the Halfords one and it's fine for doing my mountain, road and commuter bikes. Needs keeping tightened up but makes life so much easier especially when doing things like gears and brakes where you need to spin the wheels


not bad for £45 when there's things like Park Tool that want £100 for one

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
