Will you have the same sort of ability on the bike after a hip op? Hope it all goes well.

All being well and making sure i take the full 6 months recovery time then i should be better. I can't even turn a pedal now with serious pain, walking as well is an issue. Operation is to take place before February all being well.

I'd love to be a part of this, but in my trade weekend days off are like hen's teeth encased in rocking horse poo.

I'll keep a wee eye to it, though. If it works out well, I'd imagine it'll happen more than once.

the ballyvester velo went on tour today. at 615 am we headed off into the dark with lights ablaze and headed from millisle towards and beyond carrick starting off dry and getting a soaking. we went thru ballycarry and towaards some monument thing on a hill. hot coffee and croissant on route helped no end. no sign of the larne locals tho but we live in hope. 80 miles later we were home. we shall return in search of them later. of course trhe sun split the tres at 3 oooooclock. nice part of the world to pedal.

what about this ride out day chaps???

If you are out that way tackle Islandmagee, go up the Gobbins Road and by the time you get to the top you will welcome a break. Theres a great wee café popular with cyclists just round the corner there. Also a good wee one in Whitehead, down the Cable Road on the corner where you turn left into the town centre. (sorry, don’t know either names…….)

Earls is in Mullaghbouy ,Islandmagee off the Gobbins road,turn right. Cafe is.250m on the left

There is also The Rinkha which you would pass on either side of Gobbins Rd

Whitehead one is off Cable Rd on the corner of Kings Rd. Not sure about name or sunday opening.
The coffee and cream is just down the road from that.

Gleno area - Billy Andys pub will happily serve grub. Tis very nice too..Not a bad spot to cycle to either.


I must have been having a thick cvnt day yesterday :lol:
