    Anyone fancy beating this?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-17730428

    And no lightweight bike, or multiple gears.

    Godwin had to learn how to walk normally again when he finished the challenge



    I assume he's the guy not riding the bike, then.

    But seriously, great stuff and I too may make the effort to read the book.

    are we (our generation, not BM ) soft or were the oldies just hard as nails ?

    Remember my gran of 80+ being small and unstoppable and never seemed tired, or was ever ill.
