a chap at work has just bought a nice new spesh allez and is now riding into work. i've encouraged him to do so, and he was really keen. he wants to go out at lunchtime, which is fine. now as a cyclist i feel honour bound to go at his pace, encourage etc. however… i owe the chap a toasting, such as he gave me when i went running with him, the shoe being on the other foot so to speak, as he has been running for a while and i've just started. so, do i nurture and encourage, or show who's boss and toast him on a climb.
