Baselworld 2016 was an odd one for Tag Heuer. After a long period of focus on the "avant garde", the brand hit the show with the force of a minor neutron bomb with the introduction of its forthcoming CH80 chronographs. The CH80's wowed the crowd with their replique montres blend of clean, classic good looks coupled with a modern in-house movement and semi-reasonable pricing. Soon after Basel, though, the first warning replica watches sign that something was amiss appeared when Tag decided, albeit in a good way, to make minor modifications to the pushers, dial, hands, and crown. Soon after, though, and breitling replica in shocking fashion, the brand decided to cancel the eagerly awaited CH80 altogether right before it was to enter stores.

Welcome to my first attempt at a web site.


I am intending to introduce a range of topics of special interest to me and am starting with cycling.㹣ling in the UK is entering a period of expansion after many years of decline.鴒s a great way to get about, have fun and keep (or get!) fit.䨡nks to the energy and commitment of the people leading organisations like the CTC, Sustrans and local cycling campaigns, the voice of cyclists is being heard in high places.䨥 results are appearing on the ground and the National Cycle Network is rapidly taking shape.


After retiring at 56 on 1 April 2000 my first project was to cycle from LandŮd to John O⯡ts.頦ailed at my first attempt, due to a crash in Cornwall, but the re-run in August went really well.쯳pan>
