Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

This Friday gone June 21st 2013 i completed a charity bike ride across the full lenth of Britain from Morcambe to Bridlington{war of the roses} 173 miles in one day, my hip is 100%

Thank you to my surgeon Dr Gopal to my friends and my family.

Well done Ian - quite a distance in one day.

I'm sure it was a really scenic cycle too from coast to coast and through some great countryside and villages.
