    Steve Austin The Marmalade Kid

    Ian Wright :blush:

    I'm chuffed to bits. could never have played football with him, but to have ridden along with someone who i admired and cheered at Highbury was awesome.
    Really nice bloke, rode 20 miles with him on the the T.D.F. stage from Greenwich to Canterbury.

    Joked with Geoff Thomas that i was jealous that they were riding the T.D.F route and he said i could go along with them, and for one fleeting moment, i almost said yes.
    And then realised that they are riding 3500Km over the next 3 weeks, and came to my senses.

    Got on local TV too, Just a little bit too exited about this :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

    I would comment on his riding skills but that would be wrong :blush:

    Fair play to him, he was fine on the flats, and could hold some speed, but he didn't like the slopes :rolleyes:
  6. I found out yesterday that one of my workmates used to work with Stephen Roche's sister. He met him once or twice. Apparently she's a cyclist too, but not in the same league as her brother.

    User, what's with all the random bumps of old threads? Feeling a bit nostalgic this evening?

    It seems to me that cycling is gaining ground, slowly. Is it wishful thinking?

    The more - the better - i reckon it really will get bigger/better !

    Which only mean more consideration from the caged lot. :biggrin:
