    Booking.com, Booking F#$k No

    My wife does a bit of country travel with her job. She booked a hotel room last week in Horsham using Booking.com. When she got there the lady at reception told her just to call in future as Booking.com take a 20% slice of the room fee. Having said that we've used the site a fair bit and never had a problem.

    What do you eat for breakfast?

    During winter I'll have oats nuked with milk in the microwave. I add some cacao, chia seeds, sultanas and honey for some added fibre and flavour. keeps me going until lunch

    2017 Holiday

    I'd head up the coast towards San Fran and then on the way back check out Yosemite or Sequoia National Park. The Californian countryside is really nice and the giant redwood trees are worth seeing.

    Who got kissed by Karen Pini?

    I missed out in 96. I was then told she wouldnt kiss you if you were covered in sweat. So in 98 I wiped my face with my towel as I was walking up to her and got a kiss. I've got it all on video too

    I was riding with a mate on Monday and his bike was rattling on rough surfaces. Turned out to be a loose cassette same as IronJimbo

    Scuba Diving

    I did my open water and advanced open water courses with a Swiss guy based in Phuket on two separate holidays. He was great and we had no problems but there are definitely some dodgy operators there.

    Mountainbike Questions

    I've got a couple of MTB races coming up too. I've entered the 50k Otway Oddysey in Forrest in March and the Forrest 3 hour in May. I have raced a MTB race since about 1997 so its going to be interesting
