Seen any horrible potholes?

It's that time of year again when the roads warm up after a hard winter and promptly disintegrate.

Product review: Frankly baselayer

Frankly baselayer, £59Miles covered/time: 1500/three months What’s good: Manufacturers of baselayers (or thermals to you and me) often spout the most dreadful techno tosh to sell their wares without confronting the horrible truth: they make you stink.

Staff bikes: Suzuki V-Strom 650 - Brussels: Further than you think!

I thought Brussels was an easy day’s ride from MCN’s Peterborough HQ, so was first to agree to join senior reporter Steve Farrell on his rabble-rousing EU protest ride last month.
