Re: The top-level link to https://www.threetowners.net is giving a 404 error

I’d go along with Paul. Yes, it’s been that way for ever- but for some reason my browser has cached that bad url, and it’s now the first thing that comes up when I enter “thre....” in my search bar.

Must admit, I got up yesterday, looked out the window, then went back to bed :-)

Re: Threetowners cycling thread

Today’s trip, with photos. Cold morning today - heavy frost and lots of ice - so didn’t leave til after 10, and stuck to the main roads. Even so, was a bit nervous - kept thinking of a similar trip a few years ago where I went through a puddle, didn’t realise it was ice underneath, and ended up gett...

Re: Threetowners cycling thread

I was out this morning too. Glad I had looked out the winter boots and merino wool socks - it was freezing! From saltcoats, along the high road to Ardrossan, then Seamill. Through Seamill, turned towards Portencross, and on to the end of the road. Turned back, and about half way to the main road wen...

Re: Back on the wireless again...
