You'll find some snacks along with beverages at the "house-bar" ;-)
Further will Ali provide shuttle-service to/from the multiple food sources in the nearby dwellings 8-)

I'm rather partial to biscuits, hence my ever expanding girth ;)

We do a shuttle to local restaurants in the evenings to save you taking the bike out :)

Some of the posts here by our members really take the biscuit !

(So we need to know whom we can count on as a ready source of biscuits.)

And I've found that most liter size Pans, when warmed up, cook well.

David W wrote:... Your story [Ali's story] reminds me of the way police riders are taught that any familiar road can change drastically from one hour to the next. One simply cannot count on things being the same as they were even a short time ago.
(So hats off to anyone who can ride unfamiliar roads year after year without an accident.)

Apparently the attention lacks, you get comfy, until one day only a minor thing is off...
I am pretty sure that the main reason that most accidents occur on familiar roads is that we do most of our riding on those roads. What counts more than the simple number of accidents is their number per thousand miles ridden, or number per million kilometers, or their number per hundred hours of riding.

If one were to look closely at the risk of riding in any one of those three ways, I am sure that riding unfamiliar roads would prove to be generally riskier than riding familiar roads. (And a proper comparison would also take into account the severity of any accidents that occurred, not just their number. Risk takes into account the "cost" of each possible mishap, and so it goes up as severity goes up. But that is a lot of work.)

Sorry for putting all that into your greetings thread, Ali.
