    In the same way as you grind your own sandles.

    Boris Johnson, David Cameron. Oh and 14 of Cameron's front bench. In fact, a tidy percentage of the next govt. All went to Eton.

    They aren't cyclists. They are twats on bikes. There is a difference.

    Ahhh :ohmy:
    I always heard that as 'What chance have you got against the tired oppressed.' It never seemed to make total sense to me.

    One man's cyclist is another man's twat on a bike. I don't think we should introduce spurious cyclist differences here.

    The second part of Grumpy Goat's statement is pretty hard to dispute! But yes, once you start trying to define what constitutes a 'real' cyclist as opposed to a POB then the ice under your feet starts to creak alarmingly.
