I live in Tenbury Wells, so if you need anything / place to stay whilst you're in the area, give me a shout. You still have my phone no. from Redbull?

is there a major difference between a 'sundried banana' and a 'dried banana'?
i bought some from a greengrocer on the weekend but they only said 'dried banana'
they had banana chips as well
i'm very excited about this discovery
thru climbing i've had a couple of attacks of the exploding mushy banana and it's not a nice feeling to put your hand into your back pack and have it come out with something that looks like an episode of Fear Factor
or to forget a banana or two in a day pack u're not going to use again for another month or so
by which time they've grown ears

Gild,

If they are brown and chewy then they are probably just about the same thing. I guess "Sundried" could conceivably be marketing-speak, but there may be quicker, less "natural" methods of drying than leaving in the sun.

Taste great though, don't they !

they weren't quite brown but definately chewey
they were a bit softer than i expected
yeah, all the niceness of the banana taste wihtout any of the bits i don't like
made for a very nice snack while driving to my saturday night gig and back
(about an hour either way and after three hours of continuous unicycling, the return trip was only after midnight of a day that started waaay too early)
i needed the energy

Just off to get the train now...

Updates should come just as soon as they would have done, but I can't change our website for the moment, as the nice people from the Water company dug through our phone (and hence, internet) cable last week, and won't fix it for days.

No dried bananas could be found, but we aren't doing much riding today - sitting on trains will be the main feature of the trip today - 6 hours...

I've got places to stay for Tenbury now, thanks Joe.

Weee, we're off...

If you have banana problems, you need a banana guard.

You can even get glow in the dark ones.

Something else bulky to carry around with you and take up valuable beer-space.




Oops ! Thread about Sam and his epic journey seems to have been hijacked for banana related products.

Bon Voyage Sam.

Yeah I was thinking that when banana problems were brought up in this
forum where sitting comfort is a recurring theme, it would nicely
blend in with the posts in which testicles are called boys, family
jewels, nuts, etc.

Actually I may come out some day with a hilarious list of euphemisms
used in RSU in discussing the saddle <> human interface.

How can I find out about your route?
Here is mine and I loved it so much that I might come back on my 70st birthday next year ;-)

Hello Hans, you will need to set your time machine back 13-years to 2005.
This is an old thread.

PS. I have heard that it is easier travelling downhill North to South.
(only kidding)
