Description

Every weekend, across the nation's rolling countryside, watch out for the Mamils: middle-aged men in lycra’ – BBC News

‘Mamils make Oxford English Dictionary debut’ – Telegraph

‘Oh the shame of being married to a MAMIL’ – Daily Mail

 

There is a new breed emerging.

They hunt in packs, dressed in unforgiving lycra.

Their natural habitat is the local espresso bar, where they obsess about power-to-weight ratios and worship the latest high-tech road bikes.

Desperate to shave a few milligrams for speed, they will spend thousands on anything made out of carbon – conveniently forgetting about their own waistlines.

At night they dream they are Bradley Wiggins or Alberto Contador.

They are the Mamils. And they are taking over the world.

 

The Modern MAMIL – a cyclist’s Notebook can be used as a training log, a place to record race dates, targets and route notes.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
