6 months!!!!

I can't beleive it's 6 months since my last post on here. I guess it's good as it proves I'm too busy to mess about with a bolg.
Ok - so what's happened. First and foremost I haven't done any competetive cycling since La Marmotte. Veloventoux just became too busy during the summer (which is good) so racing had to take a back step.
August - "Entstock" my 40th birthday party at the Veloventoux residence here in Faucon. Over 20 of my friends came from the UK. We actually started on Thursday evening with Moule Frites in the village. Then Saturday was the big party. We started in the garden with some chilled out tunes courstesy of DJ Mickey J. At about midnight after the Paella man Phillipe had fed everyone we moved down to the converted cellar for some more banging tunes courtesy of myself and Mickey. This lasted til about 4am.
September - La Routes du Ventoux Cyclosportive. A great group from Ribble Valley CRC booked with us and one of the party - Louise Murray was 2nd overall female - great stuff.
October - Nothing to report apart from an excellent attempt on the 3 way Mont Ventoux Cinglé Challenge with a group from Holdsworth Cycles in putney.
November - Chilling out!
December - Christmas in the UK with family and the chance to drink some Real Ale at the Bridge in Burnley and The Vick in Great Harwood - two of the best pubs in the world. I also got chance to ride with my UK club Clayton Velo. Usual stuff up into the Dales with café stops in Clapham.
January - Winter training is well underway. I'm about a month behind last year so glad I'm not doing The Prestion Wheelers Reliability Ride this year. Too fat to stay with the bunch over Bowland Knotts. However - been asked to join a group of mates for The Tour of Flanders in April - watch this space.
First 5+ hour ride this week was hard but great for morale. same again tomorrow.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

Long time lurker, thought I would say hello! I really dont post much but thanks for the good times I have here. Love this place..

When I was hurt in that motorcar accident my life would be changed for all time. Sadly that driver had no car insurance and I was going to be in pain for ever.

This was not time for me to start and guess what to do. I had to find a good attorney to help me get what I needed. After all, my family was counting on me.

How bad was it? I has bedridden for 7 months, I had to have constant care and my medical bills went through the roof!

Thank goodness, I found a good referral site to help me.

I will post more later this year to tell you more about what I have been going through.

If you need an accident lawyer try the guys at
