tucking trousers into socks

    I guess most utility cylists tuck their trousers into their socks rather than using cycling clips.

    In the pub the other day I saw a couple of girls nudging and pointing and admiring my gritty look whilst I was getting the drinks in at the bar.

    In fact it makes me dizzy to have to bend down and unsock my trousers so I just leave them in most of the day at work, pub or supermarket.

    The stormtrooper vibe is not going away anytime soon, my friends.

    I don't just stop there...I also tuck my shirt into my pants.
    Better safe than sorry.
     
  3. I use bicycle clips.

    hurhurhur, you never do. I don't believe that for a second. Do you not wear trousers and socks when cycling?

    I do that as well. But mostly by accident.

    I reckon it's Neil Innes or Viv Stanshal - probably Rawlinson's End?
    Either that or a post python effort like Ripping Yarns, but i'm pretty certain it isn't ripping yarns.

    I've just finished packing aswell! Took me ages to find my flip-flops!
    I suppose I'll have to cancel the taxi to the airport now.
