Oi! It was a commute for Jnr and I have to escort him so officially a commute, OK!
Bimbling in, late and sunny, and what's this? Cyclechat's very own Cuppa de grace, Mr @tdr1nka, sneaking up behind me. Very pleasant to catch up on news. Bimble resumed, later, still sunny, and now with added smiles.
@nickyboy Who was the (fast) fella on the Manchester - Llandudno ride earlier in the year, in all the Rapha gear? Caught him yesterday morning on a lovely looking Genesis.
Pretty sure that would be @BRounsley ....like the way you refer to him as the "fast fella" then casually mention you caught him
From the side. At a junction.
If it was a blue Genesis and near Manchester then that could be me.
Aye, Couldn't tell if single speed or fixed but it was at the giant roundabout with the annoying cycle lane dissecting it. I have to take off onto the ring road from there to get to Bury, not a fun section of road to navigate.
Just getting to the lad's school tonight for his return cycle commute when someone shouted my name (My real name too, how very dare he!). I think it was @longers (why isn't that working?) who has the misfortune of being a mate of @dan_bo
Anyway, we had a quick chat and turns out he has been moving house and other stuff so hasn't been out on the bikes much. I did warn him that another visit to Degla may be on the cards so he had better sort his lardy ass out and get some practice in
Lardy? Longers? Nah mustn't have been him. I've got legs that weigh more than that farker.
He's had kiddie(s) as well, so will be a busy lad.
I was speaking metaphorically
He is indeed shuffling his fambly round the near Saddleworth. Busy busy boy.
@Origamist on Pinfold Lane deep in the Cheshire countryside. Only ever recognise him after we have passed each other as the closing speed is always 40mph plus.
Whilst walking the dog this morning I think I spotted @palinurus in his CycleChat jersey on the Leverstock Green Road
Yup, that was me.
