    myles, besides the fact that i’m pretty astonished by your effort of cycling to istanbul, i have to admit, you did a very proper job in doing what you did before: scoring numbers in different columns 🙂
    and, i also have to admit, its pretty interesting and representative of what you reached.
    all best, mate !!!

    besides all the stato stuff…the one that stands for me is favourite on the road snack = Bounty

    A kingly treat indeed my friend

      There is no more flavoursome delicacy than the mighty bounty Bewick. Well I like the Cadbury Wispa Gold also but cant find any. They also don’t operate well under varying temperatures.

    Best Wishes.
