  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

For sale: 1 egg

I am selling a medium free-range egg. I purchased it as part of a box of 6 but only need 5 for my recipe so this one is up for grabs. It would be great poached or maybe hard boiled. If scrambling you may need to buy a couple more. Depends on how hungry you are.

I paid 89p for 6 so would accept offers around 14p + postage costs.

Specs and picture below. More details on request and viewing welcome by appointment.

Re: For sale: 1 egg

This is the first time I could be arsed navigating around the unnecessarily complicated layout but I am delighted that I made the effort. I'll give you 20p for the egg. Can collect in about a month.

Re: For sale: 1 egg

Hi Tony,

Great. I have a load of travel with work coming up so 1 month from now suits me. I will set it aside until then.

Will you be paying cash or paypal / bank transfer?

Re: For sale: 1 egg

Tony, I can better this with one 105gm & one 70gm egg for 22 new pence?

Too good a deal to refuse?

But must be cash only, or I'd be doing me self and the girls an unservice.

Re: For sale: 1 egg

Erm.......etiquette? Since when did we undercut each other like dodgy car salesman. If you took the time to look on you would see that the deal Tony and I made is competitive - your proposal is absurd and detrimental to the second hand egg market.

@Tony - do the right thing....

Re: For sale: 1 egg

I'm a man of my word. I will stick to the original offer. However, I may be in the market for another egg in late May, so if yours is still available Duncan I could be interested.

Who normally services your old bird?

Re: For sale: 1 egg

Hi Tony,

Having a bit of a spring clean and discovered the egg I agreed to sell to you in a box under the stairs. Still interested? Note that the price has been adjusted for inflation to 15p.

By the way, since my initial reaction to Duncan's effort to undercut me I have had the fortune to eat an egg laid by one of his fine birds and found it to be rather enjoyable. It had a refined texture, balanced white-to-yolk ratio and delicate fruity notes. I therefore retract my initial cynicism about his aggressive pricing and would highly recommend purchasing one if still available at that price.

Re: For sale: 1 egg

Still interested in the egg. Need to get rid of a roof box first to make space. Hope the egg on offer is the original one and not some newfangled replacement.
