    I've seen it all now.

    Last night while walking to the Club meeting I passed a lad on his bike walking, no, running his dog. while doing so he was clasping his mobile phone between his shoulder and ear and trying to avoid Peds at hte same time.

    I didn't know where to be happy or sad.

    yesterday while riding home with my mate, kid on a bmx (when i say kid i mean about age 15) decides to mount the pavement to go round the corner on our inside. just around the corner was a 40 year old woman on the pavement.

    The look of shock when he whizzed past her was priceless. i know i shouldn't laugh (yes, i'm very bad) but it was like something out of a comedy because he wasn't actually that close and she completely overreacted.

    it could have been worse tho if she had been a few seconds earlier so i know i'm bad for laughing but her face was a picture. a good job he didn't actually hit her, he would have done a lot of damage.

    Is that why they call you Walker, Walker?

    Cos you are so quick at walking you pass cyclists?
