We should have a reunion.

Curry night round Rit's then on to Bar Ether.

...or about twenty earnest young DJs crammed into the bedroom of my student house. Almost a decade to the day!  Tomato Slayer!

I finally have my Xmas/NYE game plan together, and will be hitting BPW on the 28th (no uplift, just trail shiz). If any of you ladies or gents want to join us you would be most welcome.

Yes mate, will be there. You spoken to greasy about it?

At the moment he's due back in Briz the day after, but I've sent him a message to see if he can be persuaded back West in time to join us.

When & where is good for everyone?

I'm thinking Sunday 22nd Dec, probably Bike Park Wales.

Edit: that's for a trail ride, I'll also try and get in some uplifting somewhere on Sat if anyone else is game.

You are Kyle Strait.

I'm hoping to bring my trail bike back to the UK over Xmas, so would up for some uplifting and/or proper bike rides the weekend of the 21st/22nd Dec, and also possibly just before NYE.

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec - Amusing Indiana Jones/Tin Tin kind of adventure.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - A bit sad but also quite uplifting film.

The original Taxi, which is good for a laugh.

I quite liked Coco before Chanel.

Amelie, Delicatessen, City of the Lost Children are all brilliant.

La Haine clearly needs to be seen.

Mesrine is very good.

La Haine is arguably my favourite film of all time, and I thought Taxi was the shit when I was doing my A-Levels. The sequel was a serious letdown...

Downloading Mesrine at the moment on another mate's advice, but nice to see that it's generally highly regarded.

Thanks all for the suggestions, what a cultured bunch you are! Keep them coming.  Smiley

Cwmcarn has held up really well after all the rain last summer.

I've stopped running mud tyres there now, even in the pissing rain, as there's just no mud - millions of bikers over several years have got rid of every last bit of topsoil.
11  General / The Forum / Re: The Official Mountain Biking Thread! on: January 05, 2013, 23:55:59
Cwmcarn is a great choice then, the XC loop there is a casual 2hrs and has some really fun descents on it. Will be perfect to give your new steed a shakedown.  Smiley

You're absolutely right, my apologies- I've been getting my terminology mixed up.

Just had another Google and this link seems to explain the whole thing succinctly:

https://www.askthe.police.uk/content/q562.htm

16  General / The Forum / Re: Entering the US with a drug caution....? on: September 16, 2012, 17:32:15
I am SERIOUSLY sceptical as to whether it counts as a conviction - police officers do not have the power to convict, merely to arrest. A conviction denotes full process of law.

Unless that changed with the 2009 act you were talking about Spit.


Here we go:

http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/agencies-public-bodies/crb/about-crb/what-we-do/rehab-offenders-act-1974/

http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/agencies-public-bodies/crb/about-crb/what-we-do/crb-certificate/

The second link explains the change in the law in 2009.
17  General / The Forum / Re: Entering the US with a drug caution....? on: September 14, 2012, 22:32:51
Is a caution considered a conviction?



A caution does not count as a conviction, no.

A caution is a conviction, but it's considered spent the moment you're issued with it by the Superintendent at the cop shop- hence you don't have to declare it as an unspent conviction under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

Also, this thing about cautions being stepped down after 4 years / 5 years / whatever is unfortunately no longer true; the law was amended in 2009 and cautions are now no longer stepped down at all. If you were cautioned in 1990 and were now to apply for a job requiring an Enhanced CRB check, it would show up.

With both of those things said - if you tick 'no' and fly to the States, there's a very high probability that you'll get in just fine.

I've not ridden that model, but I rode a Trek 29er in the US last year and it was brilliant fun, a real eye-opener. You're a big lad so I reckon a 29er would suit you perfectly, I'd go for it  Slayer

Sorry poorly worded post, meant more has anyone got any experience on 29ers in general. But yep the extra size seems to be a big plus to a fat shit such as myself.

Pretty set on that one, just got to hope can pick up a nice cheap 2012 model still at the end of next month  Two Thumbs

I meant 'big' as in tall, not fat! Unless you're planning on riding really tech stuff then I reckon a 29er will do you very nicely.

On and off- I haven't for the last 18 months or so, mainly cos I can't be bothered, but creatine monohydrate (which is all you need, don't fall for the fancy stuff) is so cheap that there's no harm in giving it a whirl. 5g a day will do you, no need for a 'loading phase'.

I can report that both Sheesh Mehal and The Ganges are both now utter tosh. Very poor, unfortunately. There is a place called Omar's which is on Just Eat which I've had a takeaway from recently which was proper nice. Def avoid the aforementioned though.

We had a takeaway from Sheesh Mehal at the start of June and it was the same as always (i.e. really good). What did you think had changed?

Hi guys,

I'm new on here but ride around Bristol a lot. I'm into downhill and freeride, not especially fast but I hit some of the bigger lines.

Normally ride around Failand, Rowberrow, Cwm Carn but I did live in Whistler for a year 3 years ago  Grin

However.... was leaving the carpark at Rowberrow on my Norco Shore earlier today when I heard a massive bang, my Saint rear mech had completely sheared off and got sucked into my rear wheel - gutted.

So... when I get it fixed, anyone up for a ride? None of my mates ride bikes and I'm not really feeling Ashton Court trails.






Whistler crew! I lived there for two summers (when this thread was started in fact), 'twas a gay old time.

I don't live in Briz these days but am back for a visit shortly, see my schedule about three posts further up. If you've got a car and fancy some uplifting then come and join us!

As I think I said before, I'm in Briz over 'Jubilee Week' - doing Cwmcarn on Tues and FoD on Weds, but afraid the car is full for those two. We may well head back to FoD on the Friday though for some more upliftification, you game?

Edit: Will be back in my Clio for Friday which only holds two so the car issue still applies, but rope some other sucker into driving you! Same applies for Tues and/or Weds if you can make it.  Slayer

David Lloyd is an amazing gym in terms of facilities, but the PT is shit. Fitness first harbourside was much better in that respect. If I was flush though, it'd be DL, no question.

Fair enough. I would be tempted but that would push monthly outgoings over the £500 mark, which I'm not crazy over. How much is Fitness First, off the top of your head...?

I'm not too sure tbh - I had corporate membership which was £33 a month, I think full price might be £45. Have you checked out Workout Bristol on North Street? £20 a month apparently.

AFAIK they're now full and only accepting people for daytime only memberships although being a publican I'd imagine this might suit Mr Ferryman?

I used to go to Nuffield on the triangle - that was about £70 a month but got it cheaper through work. Expensive, but they did give you a freshly laundered towel every time you went in.

I used to go there. The towels ran out often, the price went up and it wasn't clean.
Plus, the place was full of fucking idiots that had no idea about personal space.

Some buff girls in there, mind.

Gareth- yeah that's the one, they really seem to know their shit on the fighting side of things, and it means there are precious few muppets getting in the way. They were also playing Wu Tang and Big Pun when I went to check the place out, they had me at hello.
41  General / The Forum / Re: Gyms SOTR - anyone recommend any? on: February 13, 2012, 21:39:09
Gareth, you need to hop on the train and come and visit my gym in Brighton, it is THE BOLLOCKS. Run by a cage fighter, so you know it's the real deal - they've got three squat racks, two Oly lifting platforms, chains, a tyre and a sledgehammer, a Prowler... and absolutely no tellies on the treadmills.  Slayer

42  General / The Forum / Re: So my mate just got fired... on: February 04, 2012, 19:43:15
I'm pretty sure when you're firing someone, legally you are meant to have a solicitor or another fellow employee present as witness to whats about to happen.

KInd of- they have to hold an investigation into whatever they think might be worth firing you over, which has to culminate in a meeting with you, at which you can have a work colleague or trade union rep present.

As Beany says, if he's been there over 12 months then he's laughing all the way to the bank. I wouldn't even bother with the threatening letter, I'd take them straight to tribunal and they'll likely settle for several grand before it even gets to court.

Er, cheers Fred, I think. Laugh

I went there last year for the day, really liked it - very beautiful place

What did you do?

walked around a bit

This tickled me, I had to hold down audible laughter in the office.

You haven't even seen me walk

No need, the comment was comedy enough.

It would be exponentially funnier if you'd seen him walk though, trust me.

I'm from Cambridge, and there really isn't a lot to do in terms of 'attractions', unless you count wandering around 40-odd university colleges (which I'm not sure I do). Go and have a look at Kings College, then buy some banging fudge from the shop over the road. You're then a short walk from the punts, and if you wait six months then you can also enjoy a nice sunny drink on the grass outside the Mill Pond pub (already mentioned above, but it was a formative part of the teenage Cambridge experience).

In summary then: walk around a bit.
