Re: racing bike

Posted by: Mariet Allen

  I have a childrens racing bike that needs a good home. It’s quite old but in good working order. Had it serviced and a new derailer put on last year. Size is just one below an adult size bike. Would be perfect for somebody who uses the track at Salt Ayre.

Re: Raleigh Wisp

Posted by: Violetta

  Yes Nicky, Raleigh Wisp is still for sale. Colour – pale blue. Age ? We bought it for our teenage daughter some years ago but the novelty quickly wore off. She used it probably less than a dozen times! It is gathering dust!

Re: Stolen bicycle

Posted by: Jessica Abrahams

  My bicycle was stolen from behind my house on Longmarsh Lane sometime between 10am on Friday 28th November and 9am on Monday 1st December. It’s a Specialized Hard Rock mountain bike painted matt black, with fine silver lettering on the frame.

If you notice a bike of this description left around somewhere, or for sale second hand, please contact me. Reward if it’s recovered. Many thanks!

Re: Looking for a Massload bike rack

Posted by: Helen

  I had my bike pinched a few weeks ago and while replacing the bike itself was no problem I cannot find a replacement rack which will fit my rack pack, (it is the kind which slides into slots on top of the rack.) I had a Massload rack which I bought from Halfords about 4 years ago but they no longer supply them. Anyone got one for sale or know of anywhere I can get one??

Many thanks.

Re: Rides – Local Group

Posted by: CelebratingCycling

  All of our organised rides are mixed (except of course for the Women on Wheels) – however we don’t organise lots as we’re never sure what the interest is (and we need ride leaders etc).

We’re just starting to put together the events guide for 2009 – hopefully this will include a few longer rides (eg into Bowland).

We have in the past put out a call for people interested in forming a local group that could meet and ride together (but not on the scale of clubs like the Lune Valley). Happy to help co-ordinate if there are interested people out there.

Re: Mixed cycling

Posted by: Andrew

  I’ve only been on one run in the area, and there was both male and female riders, and a child in a seat too. The run was from the Millennium Bridge to Sunderland Point. The organiser was Sandra Elsworth.

Also catch up on my replies in a pro cycling sense in the letters pages of The Visitor online.

Re: Trike

Posted by: Andrew

  ‘I’ve got my eye on a large workbike type tricycle – but it’s in Liverpool – Anyone have any ideas what Courier firms might deal with this? Or recovery firm? It’s not "rideworthy" as it is’

Are you far from Lancaster station?

I know this might sound like a daft idea, but would it fit into the hold area of an inter-city train? Book it as two bikes (it’s free to book) so to accomodate the width.

Go to Liverpool via Crewe from Lancaster.

Just a thought.
