10.99 for some dice!!!

Cut out a hexagon from some cardboard; write each of the dice bits on the edge; shove a pencil through the middle and take it for a spin.

Jobs a good'un

they are aluminium. it's their 10 year anniversary and things have probably gone a little stale in tbe bedroom. this covers 2 things in one hit.

10.99 is not much to pay to save a marriage.

Weds - Have you tried...

www.rebycle.co.uk

Used to be run by the Slackos (and their photo is still there).
But they sold it to another TTer, although I'm not sure who. Rolling Eyes

Congratulations on the 10 years.

Love Strong, Paul. Date

A cyclo cross bike. Mr Weds definitely needs a cyclo cross bike. And it will last at least until he falls off it during his first race in September. Smile

that will be later in the summer Smile

I've ordered him some Assos Bib Shorts from Wiggle as a kind of luxury 'thing you'd never buy yourself' gift Smile

I saw you running down Wherstead Road yesterday - you were concentrating hard!

Hey! No fair spying on me like that. I try to maintain my "ho hum, this is easy" face when I know I'm being watched.

Have I gone into a weird fugue and I have 2 usernames without realising it...... I am NOT Wed (as far as I know) but HAVE been sidetracked for a few years from triathlon by my horses, I do have a sore backside and I am on the hunt for a 10th wedding anniversary present for my triathete OH.... (And I'm going long for the first time to do the Outlaw).

Anyhow, Paul L your recycled bicycle parts idea is fabulous and you have solved my 'what to get' problem. Thanks!!

This cool gold cross ring was the last and most beloved gift I've ever got for Chrismas. Wear it daily!

Maybe an entrance into a proper 'destination' race like Escape From Alcatraz or something similar? Something to remember forever.

Hi all,

over the years I've bought him bikes and windsurf boards but they tend to get replaced over time.

What a lucky guy.... I have to buy my own bikes and windsurf boards

Anyway, some ideas: a classic road bike that can be hung up as a piece of art... maybe also be used to display event trophies

An album containing pictures of windsurfing and triathlon performance for each year of your anniversary

+1 for Assos kit, just bought some Assos Bonka Gloves (at stupid price) but they are so good

A nice set of bike tools and/or repair stand (a proper one to the job right)
