I recently was buoyed by a friend who is just about to purchase his first road bike because he was inspire by... me! I reguarly get out on long rides and post my Strava on my Facebook, and he now fancies getting into cycling after following my progress. He asked me to 'bike hunt' with him (I was like a kid on his way to Toys R Us - mind you, I still get excited when I take my kids there!). He has a budget of a grand, so we've been around lots of bike shops looking at some cool machines. He's a tall lad (about 6'3" i reckon) so its hard trying to get him a clearance bike from this year, but there are a few. Besides the new models will be out in the Autumn. He quite likes the Cannondale CAAD8 btw. Anyway, I thought I'd share this little ditty with you all as I was quite touched that I've actually managed to inspire someone! Has anyone else made there passionate hobby contageous to anyone around them??
