…got into a commuter race today caught up with a chap on a road bike at the lights. baggy shorts (brave chap), but otherwise a roadie (nice specialized bike, better than my 531 commuter, oh and no rucksack). we exchanged pleasantries, and i clipped in quicker so bid him good day as i went off ahead. i thought i had gotten away from him as i went up a short rise and through some traffic lights. ahead was a girl in hi-viz, at which point the other chap breezes past. i should have let it go, but i just had to overtake again, and pass the girl first. thus ensuring that i was coughing my guts up when i got to work, as i've had a cold all week. i might have won, but was it really worth it?
