    Went out in Norbert this morning. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Cold though. Mind you, I must be getting fitter as I even managed the big chainring today. Hurrah!

    Glad you enjoyed it.
    Must admit, when I saw the thread title I had an image of something a bit more salacious, if you see what I mean. I must clean my act up a little.;)
    *feels slightly disgusted with self. Only slightly, mind*

    When you say "in" Norbert, does that mean it is one of those bents with all round body work? (I know there's a jargon term for it but can't for the life of me think what it is.)

    No, I mean the actual bit of plastic or fibre glass or whatever it is that goes all around the bike. You sometimes see pictures of just the heads of eccentric looking chaps peeping out of them.

    I think that sounds like it.

    But velomobile sounds a bit er ... well ... French.

    Couldn't we anglicise it and call it a speedwagon?

    With regards to Norbert, I am cradled in his lovely comfy mesh seat, so I feel as if I am enveloped in him rather than sitting on him, so to speak.
    Norbert is my mobile deck chair.

    No doubt The Doctor will cast some double entendres upon my being enveloped or sitting upon... :angry:

    Did someone call?

    Wouldn't dream of making that sort of innuendo about your comfort machine, Waffles. I'm glad you had a good ride.

    I am now I've seen you!:smile: Especially since I might be seeing you on Sunday;), if I go on the Norfolk ride.

    You might even see me building up a sweat while labouring away beneath you.:biggrin:

    Because I might be on a bent, and you won't be.:angry:

    Must...resist
    must.....resist

    Can't resist...

    If you want a double entendre, I'll give you one!!!:biggrin::biggrin:

    OOH! How excellent!! If you do turn up you'll see Mr & Mrs Wafflycat & perhaps a Wafflycat Minor. Bring on the double entendres!
