    Let the LIDL thread commence...

    I went to my local branch this morning. Got two excellent aluminium bottles, complete with padded
    sleeves and bottle racks. £2.50 each. Socks for £1.50 a pair seem OK. I bought a pair of padded
    shorts, which are a bit thin but brilliant for use under baggy shorts. Watch though - the sizing is
    quite generous. I bought medium, which are a bit loose on me. Don't buy the large unless you really,
    really are sure you need them.

    And of course a Hippo squeaky horn.

    The cycling tops looked OK, but the colours were too bright for me. I looked at the plastic rack top
    boxes, but they seemed very large. Anyone buy one last year? What are they good for, and do you
    still use it?

    Got a pair of socks for Vernon

    Oh yes - they are generous in size, even fitting yours truly without so much as a strrrrrrrrrretch
    :) I like the reflectives on the shorts. They are a bit thin
    - great for summer wear but *need* undergarment to be worn. I also wear full lenght leggings and the
    shorts are more than adequate to be worn under leggings.

    Waaaaaah - local branch didn't have those :(

    >The cycling tops looked OK, but the colours were too bright for me.

    The Unfit Family stocked up on these for summer leisure cycling. Got the grey + yellow, the blue &
    the rainbow ones. I am trying to be as bright as Nipples Colyer ;-P

    Got one for son's school bike, so he can transport his books to school - boxes do look at least on a
    par with the ones sold in Halfords for almost £30

    I also got a new helmet for moi (yellow one) & for son (silver one). Wore the helmet this afternoon
    - it is very comfortable for me, and very visible.

    So that's the summer cycling attire stocked up on for another year :)

    Cheers, helen s

    Plenty in the one near me Helen. If the Family Simmons would like a trio of squeakys let me know and
    I'll bung some in the post for you.

    (I too went for the friendly blue hippo. The crocodile didn't have nearly as much panache in the
    flesh as his photo suggested.)

    Lucky b****r all my local Lidl had were the waterbottles (not needed) and some women's
    shorts liners!

    Just bought: the lamps, mini pump, kiddie helmet, gel saddle. Unbelievable value.

    Any idea if the child's bike seat will reappear this year? It's on the German website:
    http://www.lidl.de/de/index.nsf/pages/c.o.oow.20030403.p.Fahrrad-Kindersitz and it looks identical
    to the one they were selling in the UK last year (when I should have bought one).

    Alternatively, does anyone know where I can get a vaguely similar seat for a vaguely similar price?
