How about this then, do your washing and get excercise at the same time. Looks good.

Makes sense that it should be possible to rig the essential bits of a dead washing machine up like that, good for him.

I liked this quote

Quote:

Good start I said to my self....after the night of rain the next day we were in businesses we had people dropping off clothing and picking it up in the afternoon you could say I had a laundrette running in a field in the Mendip hills, I was a stone lighter when I got back from the festival.

Just keep him away from it until it does, or you will come home one day to a dismantled machine that chews up your smalls and guess who will get lumbered with the peddling while he gets down to some serious telly watching

I think it's an excellent idea and I still have a stone to lose!

As a one-time racing cyclist who owns an indoor trainer for the winter months this presents an elegant solution to part of my energy reduction goals. Do you have to sprint extra hard for the spin cycle?

Just imagine. In the future their will be spinning classes at the local launderette!
