Go to page 57 of this thread and you'll find a post with a star in it. Place your curser immediately to the left of it and left-click your mouse to highlight it. Right-click and select the choice: Copy. Go to the top right of this page and 'hover' your curser over your name. From the list on the left-hand side that drops down, select Signature. In the panel that appears, right-click and select Paste. Just add what it's for, and click save. Ta-da!
My PC allows me to copy the image but not to paste it.

It only allows me to paste it as a link. Any idea why?

The photo, taken yesterday, is of Chapel Lane and the hump in the background is the bridge that will carry Chapel Lane over the new road. It looks like a January opening may be ambitious!
After looking at the road today, I have total faith that the British Civil Engineering industry will meet the January deadline after their Christmas hols...........:whistle:

What happen after Sept were you injured
 
Completed what will probably be my last century ride of 2016 (though I'll try one more after Christmas if I can). A bit of cycle-therapy really. We lost Dad on Friday night after a tough few months. A chance to ride hard and not be able to think about anything else for a few hours was a very welcome relief. It helped that I know he'd have really loved the view from the top of a very misty Dunstable Downs and I can hear him gently berating me for being mad doing some of those hills (tennis was his sport, not cycling). Thanks for all the help and encouragement this year folk.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad ...

I went out on my bike in similar circumstances after my dad died - LINK.

On to a less serious subject ... I am currently blitzing the local roads in a feverish attempt to hit my annual distance target. I worked out that I need to do at least another 9 rides of 50+ km by the end of the month. It would probably be my toughest December ever if I manage it. I have already ridden 370 km (230 miles) this month.

There are at least 3 days when I am unlikely to be doing much so it is going to be very tight. I won't give a blow-by-blow account, but I will post all of the remaining rides that I do in one go on New Year's Eve. I would rather not do rides much longer than 50 km at this time of year but if I have to, I will do a metric century or two to make up any shortfall.

Did the same earlier this year when my mum died. My thoughts are with you and here's to a better year in 2017.

Thank you, I'm sorry you had to go through it too.

Good luck with that immense challenge, we're all hoping for you! I've just got to hit 7 hours, a single 50km and 70km in total to hit my remaining targets (300 hours, 4000miles in 2016 and 50th 50+km ride).

I remember hearing that a cycling friend (not on CC) was back in hospital and not likely to come out again, so I went for a bike ride. Now whenever I ride those roads (not often, as I moved away since), I think of him. I'd be happy to be remembered when a friend of mine cycled some nice bits of road...

What happen after Sept were you injured
In September I pulled the tendons in both feet jogging, I was advised to take a couple of weeks off at the walk-in centre.
During that couple of weeks I sort of lost interest so it turned into 14 weeks, no excuses, just laziness really.
