Cycling to badminton yesterday came across a couple of mountain bike police officers plodding (excuse the pun) along so i pulled up and started chatting with them. I was asking what kinda training they do, and they replied with a bit of a laugh "half a day mate", i wonder what their training consists of, does anyone know? basic maintenance covered? They were on nice hydraulic disc brake mtb. Didnt get to ask if they had read cycle craft magnatom Shame they werent going down that same road about 20 minutes earlier where some muppet had loaded his car so much he couldnt see out of his passenger window to see me coming from his left side. grrr! The guy just pulled straight out onto the road not even looking!
