Another lovely ride, this trail is a real find and we have really taken advantage of the weather & the cycling provisions!

I think these garden ornaments would be too life like for my Podengo, he does love the chase of a small animal!

Hmm, I think my Scotties would take an interest in these - up till the point when they realize they don't move :-)

I hope you are all managing to get out in the snow!

We picked a great time to come out and relax..

Took this in my first 75k ride on Saturday, raising funds for Pilgrims Hospices.

Think I have the bug now and am going to enter the tour de Sandwich in June! It will take in some lovely parts of east Kent and the area I grew up!

Beautiful again, I am pleased with myself so far. Enjoying 25 miles a day so far with 40 today take me closer to my charity ride goal.

I'm still new to all this but loving our rides along the coast.

+Richard Vernon I am riding the coast from Mojacar Playa to Villa Rico's with a loop up past Vera town. If you love a hill or two this area is a great place to train, if like me you like distance without too many hills you will love it here too! Roads are in good condition with some excellent cycle path provision in busier areas! 3 months sounds great, good luck and I hope you love it!

+Andrew Thompson the tcx has been a dream since I bought it, very comfy riding position for me which was important. Sits up well on the roads and was unstoppable in the recent snow and boggy weather in the UK winter. Obviously it isn't a pure roady so the gearing isn't made for too much climbing (neither am I) all in all I am really happy with my choice, a spare set of slicker tires for the summer and I can't see me parting with it any time soon!

OK newbie question which is probably obvious but here goes!

I have a Giant tcx with 700 x 35c tires, can I buy 700c x 23 road wheels and tires and use as normal. Road tires are mainly for my rollers and possibly for easier charity rides this year.

Also is it OK to just add a like for like cassette to the 23s and keep gearing the same?

Thanks

Introduction
If you have stumbled across this page and are asking is this the right Kim, you are asking the wrong question my friend.  You should be asking could this be the Kim I have searched my whole life for and not yet found, if that is your question, if you have searched for a Kim in your life to make your life more complete and come now to this page with hope and a renewed faith in human kind, you may be sorely disappointed but stick around I see dead people.....  
Bragging rights
My brain is cobbled together from discarded pieces of play dough and the last time I did something exciting a little bit of wee came out!

We had a really good honeymoon here, the staff were first class and nothing was too much trouble for them. The buffet style all inclusive meals were varied and always fresh, the themed nights shone with the Indian buffet my personal favourite. The other restaurants on the site were also staffed well with a real personal service feel to enhance the excellent choice. The room we had was spacious and always cleaned to a high standard, the bed gave a pleasant nights rest and the air-conditioning kept us cool throughout the muggy nights. The beach is small but over all ideal for a relaxing stay, the pool area again was well maintained and the drinks service regular!! The entertainment is good if you take it for what it is, do not expect Celine Dion to pop up with her Vegas show but enjoy the music and dance nonetheless! The WiFi in the resort is the most stable in the bar area but stays good in the rooms and they are happy to provide extra access for those of us who travel with gadgets. Thanks to the staff for making our extensive journey to this beautiful island worth while x

Only downside is that the area is gridlocked at certain times of day

Never going to be a favourite place, food outlets are all generic and place looks tired
