Contrary to popular belief...

I have not left the building. I just don't visit very much these days. You can send me an email - guy dot chapman at spamcop dot net - or visit my website, http://www.chapmancentral.co.uk
And another bike!

As any Goodies fan will tell you, a bike with three seats is called a Trandem. And that's what I've bought! A Thorn Me'n'U2 double-childback triplet, me or the missus on the front, and the kids on the back. Brilliant fun

I bought a recumbent - about six weeks ago, actually. An Optima Stinger, frame number 0198. It's low, it's mean, it's a flying banana!
Being More Laid-Back
Posted Aug 31, 2002
I have decided that the way to enhance my pleasureis to be more laid back. I am therefore in the process of purchasing a recumbent cycle - it might be a bike (Optima Stinger, or HP Velotechnic Speedmachine) or it may be a trike (the Trice Micro is looking better than the Windcheetah these days).
We shall see. The two-wheelers are a couple of grand less, so lok favourite
Holiday, more cycling, stuff.

Seem to spend more time on uk.rec.cycling these days - response times are an order of magnitude shorter on Usenet, and it's my original home anyway.
Just been to Beaumaris on holiday - not bad, but crap weather (a first). All climbed Snowdon, including son Peter aged 5 1/2.
Couple of weeks ago I rode to St Albans & back. Going (hilly) averaged 18.5 - disappointing, but did exceed 41mph down one hill. Coming back averaged 20.5 for over 40 miles - best ever, and no following wind (headwind in fact), so very pleased!
