Hi allyharp, theres not a great deal up at Cathkin Braes, just some shared paths (i only go up there for the climb and the view). There are some built trails at Pollok that are worth a look, not exactly extensive but there are some nice features (logs, jumps and some nice rootsy stuff). Have you bee...

A good cycle route is from the city centre to Cathkin Braes 'n Back, done this several times and always found the climb up via Busby and Carmunnock is well worth the descent back into the city. Its a short run by some standards but one of the most traffic free 'n rewarding (in terms of the decent). ...

User List

I found a great Mod for deleting multiple users and their login keys/sessions without going into the database and messing around in there. Its called User List and i've been using it for about a month or two without any problems, its a great feeling deleting 50+ spammers with just one click! http://...

Great story Dugald.

I used to cycle a daily commute into the City of London everyday and the intolerance of motorists always astonished me.

Garageband

Don't wanna get into the whole Mac vs PC debate, but you can't go wrong with Apple's Garageband. Guitar (or any other instrument) plugs straight into your Mic port (or use the Macs built-in Mic for a nice acoustic tone) and voila... multi-track recording, plus you have access to a host of sound loop...

The Sex Museum on the Damrak is worth a visit, not at all sleazy and quiet interesting. You should also pay a visit to the Bloemenmarkt (Flower Market).

I may be courting controversy here but it seems to me that drugs use is never going to be fully eliminated from sport. From that standpoint why not just level the playing field and make it legal? For sports like cycling you could have a handicap system in place with those testing positive receiving ...

I never really got into road cycling or the club scene. I am a keen mountain biker though and there are some great offroad routes in and around Glasgow, my current favourite is Carron Valley http://www.carronvalley.org.uk . I take my hat off to the roadies I see tackling the 'tak me doon' road on my...

Excellent post Dugald.
