    How can I define this ?
    Hmm.
    It's a thread setup for all those people who used to contribute elsewhere from Europe, but now that their own forum has been closed down - myself and Fred C are sheparding them to this thread.
    (long story).

    Lots of interesting views - Fixit.
    If they migrate - they'll counter balance the transatlantic aspect of this entire forum.
    It will lead to an improvement - believe me.

    Thanks for that.

    Maybe you can explain the meaning of this thread to me.

    I don't think your stupid. Just baffled. All will become clear when the TGV pulls in with the Europassengers. A whole trainload of them.

    Scotland. You should be on safe ground. We will have the finest and sharpest riders, and they are fantastic at causing a row in an empty house.

    Now signing on for service... How many ES folks have we got here yet? Fred, don't make it out that only Euros are here. All will see that I am definitely not Euro and very redneck!

    Hi

    Been very crook with a virus................... its in its 7th week............ I know I needed to lose some weight but its been a bit of a drastic way to lose 2 dress sizes.

    Fred C has been keeping me cheerful with his little anecdotes.

    How R U & Yours................... still getting the daily miles in.

    Am also doing more writing. ................. and going back to college again

    Had a wonderful idea whilst watching the white porcelain being sick.......... write about cyclings infamous club runs on Sunday Mornings .......... I've had a few contributions ........... because if someone doesn't chronicle things about our wonderful sport we're going to lose the folklore.

    Any contributions gratefully recieved to my cycling e-mail [email protected]

    Talk to you all later.

    M

    Red - I haven't heard from you in quite some time.
    How's it going ?
    Did you purchase that Bike ?

    You'll find that there are no restrictions here to the length of ones message.
    The other site was a disaster - truncated messages, no identities etc.
    As long as it's within the bands of decency, people are free to post here.
    You'll find plenty of your fellow country men here.

    Things are going well - I purchased the Casati and haven't ridden as much as I like - between the weather here and life in general, it's a bit of a chore, to be honest. I have a winter training plan that I am going to start next week. Maybe I will keep everyone up on that little venture.

    As for the ES board, I grew weary of not seeing messages posted for days and just the bunk that ran rampant in general. A forum like this is good in the sense that we are absolutely sure that we are who we are (if we check the spelling!).

    It's good to see the crew here. I think David Byrne once said it (loosely)- This is the place...

    I've e-mailed all the culprits that I've got mail addresses for, so who knows we may get some of the good guys back............I hope so, for the sake of my sanity.
