    @YahudaMoon as he plodded through the rain heading towards Ashton. I was driving so had to make do with a cheery pip pip pip of the horn. Not seen him for a while so either I was early or he was late :hello:
    Weather was awful so I was kind of glad to be in the car but respect to Yahuda for doing it in all weathers.

    @dan_bo going like the clappers as he took primary position through a pinch point heading in to Ashton. The proximity of the moron in the little silver car behind him wasn't very impressive, they obviously couldn't wait to join the queue at the traffic lights a couple of hundred yards up the road, Muppets!
    I was in the car (again :sad:) ferrying the little one to school. Just can't persuade him to cycle at the moment.

    I didn't realise there was a thread for CC spotting. I commented last week on the Your Ride thread of seeing @Old jon on my way to work. He was recognisable from his profile picture while I remain steadfastly behind my secret identity.

    Yep, but you were passing me by that time (In the old tractor again). I would have spotted you sooner but I was too busy being incensed by the loony inches from your back wheel to realise it was you until you were almost past. You are just too quick ;)

    Anyone commute from Wandsworth, along CS8 to Chelsea Bridge, then up to Hyde Park?

    I think that was the day my bicycle front wheel decided it wanted into the tram line, so I did a little tumble, Im OK though

    Friend at work said, "if my back wheel had gone into the tram line, Id have ended up at Eccles"

    I've never managed to post in this thread before!

    I decided to take a route along Cattle Market Road, to see the work that had been going on, and at the end there was a green bike... Looked up as I stopped beside them at the lights to realise it was @Profpointy that I'd met at the weekend! So we chatted and cycled along Clarence Road cycle path before going our separate ways at the end.

    Right city, but wrong guy I'm afraid. I do have a green (ish) bike, but haven't cycled round there recently if at all

    I only see half a dozen other cyclists at most on my commute so chances of one being from this place is pretty low I imagine. Even Strava Flybys usually show one or two other people in the surrounding 30 miles...

    I don't believe I've ever spotted a CCer on my commute, but no surprise I guess, given I live about 10,507 miles (according to Google) from London. :rolleyes: If there are any other CCers in Melbourne, perhaps I could wear my CC jersey more often, so you can spot me. :hello:

    Success at last! Was riding to school this morning with the half-pint when we spotted @dan_bo pedaling past. That makes us all on bikes so fully compliant with the unspoken rules of the thread :becool:
