    Can you give me a nod? just one out of sympathy will do fine.......

    When I rode my MTB on the road, all the roadies would ignore my friendly nod or, more usually, pretend they hadn't seen it.

    Now I have a road bike, but being a fat git, and because I don't wear all the "proper gear" I 'spose, I still get blanked :biggrin:

    I am a "proper" cyclist, I always try my best and seem to occasionally go at a desperately slow reasonable pace.

    So, if you see some bloke wheezing along on a Black SCR3 around the Sittingbourne area, please return my nod :biggrin:

    I know the "nod debate" was raging elsewhere, this is just a polite request :biggrin:

    Nodding or giving a little wave is a nice friendly thing to do, and I tend to do it a lot to other cyclists. I won't get to see you so have :biggrin: a vitrual one from me too.

    :biggrin:The mistake you are clearly making is not wearing the same gear as the bird in your sig pic:biggrin:.

    Now then, Seeing as you have both confessed to being "Big Fellas", could we not get you to meet up, put costumes on as in Panters avatar and get a photo posted in Picture Gallery*?

    Like the advert says "The doing of the deed, priceless !" :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :tongue:

    *Why do I think of Tony Hart every time I see that ?

    Well, I can't speak for Mr BFTB but I fear I'd be instantly arrested if I did. "Crimes against humanity" or some such thing.

    I have a weary eye behind me when I venture out in the lycra shorts as it is :biggrin:
