    Don't you just love 'em.

    Saw one today on his Halfrods MB, riding on the pavement, texting a mate and drinking a can of lager at the same time.

    He'll get an A grade GCSE for that.

    I love 'teenage cyclists' ;)

    My particular teenager is out on his road bike every day doing a spot of training and then time trials most weekends. He did a hilly TT at the weekend despite a nasty swollen hip, road rash on his shoulder, leg & back, and deep, weeping road rash on his elbow just at the point where his arm rests on the tribars, and generally being in pain from being effectively taken out by a lorry the previous week, which did not give him room on the road and did not stop to see if said teenager was okay.

    And he doesn't jump red lights & he doesn't cycle on the pavement.

    Some teenagers are rather pleasant sorts, with a bit of determination & grit about them (and possibly grit still in them from lasy week...) ;)

    Glass of wine would be gratefully received! I'm shattered after a hectic weekend, but can't settle to get off to sleep - so a nice chilled glass of say Orvieto Classico would do nicely (not a 'great' wine, but I like it) thank you ;)

    In general I am all for cyclists of all types, but I can't help wishing for the day when one knocks me over as I go through my gate, cos I'm gonna kill 'em.

    Glad to see the boy's back on bike. My granddaughters - 3 and 4 - fell under their wicked uncle's influence and now delight in cycling round the yard, no hands and eyes closed!
