Beyond the narrow streets, the city is well endowed with dedicated, generally well-maintained and clearly signposted cycleways. But then, as we all know, reliance upon common sense doesn’t necessarily stand up in court when it comes to an injuries claim! I’m afraid that I think triathlons are probably beyond me, even if in a moment of weakness I end up getting a bike and taking to the roads. Talking of tinkering, something else I’ve been experimenting with is changing the standard 50T crank to a 44T crank, the idea being that I would get a lower bottom gear to help with the hilly roads we have round here. But alas, as with many Brompton related tasks and modifications, simple and straight-forward it is not.

Because the rear mudguard (on the L model) doubles as a third-wheel-support, for ease of dragging the Brompton along whilst it is parked or folded, as one might expect it is particularly well secured. I like the security of the clipless pedal, and the Shimano ones I fitted are much more robust than the Brompton standards. By which I mean, the saddle is too high, too low, too far forward, too far back, raised too much at the front, raised too little at the front. Since you do like pedalling and would like to put some work at least on way home, torque sensing would suit you.Fortunately the book was not damaged but in my opinion the envelope used wasn't fit for purpose and appeared to be the cheapest one they could get away with using.

And if that’s not enough, you can use two hands which then gives you seven fingers to measure with (yes, I know, most people have eight fingers, but you still need to leave one to hold the pillar! On face value, to the initiated at least, surveying wildlife by bike might seem like the ideal occupation. I found the very thought of cycling up those hills after a days work to be too demoralising, so I gave up. Most of the time, that’s not a problem, but when it’s been cold and wet, it has slipped from my hands. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.You then push the brake forward in an attempt to release it from the frame…but suddenly you realise that it is stuck against the wheel and won’t move far enough for the spindle to clear the hole. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and knowing the author simply made his achievement (in writing a book and, indeed, in getting on a bike) that much more impressive. The semi-compact is the sensible design compromise between the classic horizontal top tube and the rather ridiculous compact form.

Also, where is a good place to get a test and a fitting so l can work out whether it would work for me? Two attractive body-positive women, Latino and Caucasian, doing a workout on the exercise bike in the gym under the supervision of the coach, the senior 55-years-old Cuban Hispanic man. Both of these surveys I have done (for I am, as regular readers will know, a professional ecologist).

It’s only natural that some of the club want to compete in Triathlons, given that we reside on the inspirational Brownlees’ patch, and there’s the boom in triathlons of recent times, it’s a logical extension of running and another increasingly popular challenge to be undertaken. I’m afraid it’s Shanks’s Pony for me for the time being at least, although because of my penchant for the walking and hiking I’ve done in the past I seem to have acquired a reputation (entirely undeserved) as something of a ‘Hard Man of the Hills’. The other thing that you ‘lose’ when you remove the front mudguard is inherent protection of the brake cable when turning right. So once this and the axle-skewer are fitted, the turbo trainer can be used in exactly the same way as with a regular bike.
