    Riding into Naburn from the Stillingfleet side, about 2.40pm, said hello to a girl in jodhpurs on a Giant FCR, with her friend behind on a Dawes town bike, riding out of the village to the stables?

    Dispelled the old "roadies are snobs" idea...;)

    I can truthfully say that neither of those girls were me, Arch, if that's what you mean...

    Thank you Melvil, that's not quite what I meant, no...

    Doesn't trying to track down random men who just happen to say 'hello' smack of . . . well, desperation?

    (...as he frantically studies the map to see if he can include Naburn and Stillingfleet into his ride home)

    What's wrong with smacking of desperation? I would have thought it to be a quite admirable quality.

    It was the jodhpurs that clinched it.

    Am I? I suppose I am, in that I ride on the road mainly, but this guy was all done up in the right kit, dropbar bike etc, whereas I was sweating along in jodphurs, a tee-shirt and DMs, with two panniers... Didn't feel very roadie like...
