Who did I see on a TT bike and tri-bars just outside Bath about an hour ago?

Definitely a forumite as they shouted Gonz.

I spotted Valiant on friday night.  He was heading back to our table with two frothing pints of ale.  Wot a good egg.  :thumbsup:

I was a spotty spottee in Dunstable today. I don't know who the spotter was though. But they lose points for being in their car when they could have been cycling in the sunshine. 8)

I spotted Chris N on Saturday.  He appeared to be slightly squiffy.

't was me! Testing out my lovely new Hed Jet 60 c2. I am so not worthy of it, but it sounds nice and it's got a nice little turbo that kicks in at about 24mph.

I thought it was a very flashy bike that you were on!

What was the frame?

Not that flashy, it's an alloy Cervelo Dual. Got it secondhand on the bay and built it up from bits I got from all sorts of places. The front wheel and the tyres are the only new things on it.

I'm very happy with it though, it goes like stink.

I must give the old tackle a scrub in preparation.

Guilty as charged M'Lud.  In my defence, I was coming back from doing a car boot sale.  Whilst I can get a certain amount of rubbish highly desirable items for sale in the trailer, I can get far more in the car.

Well, you lose even more points for wasting a sunny day at a car boot sale.
So there ;D

Am I forgiven if I said I made lots of money to spend on nice shiny bike bits?


And I was out on the bike all Saturday!

I spotted someone riding across Tooting Common this morning, about 8.30 ish, with an ACF jersey on.

Near the cafe. I was coming the other way, about to cross Bedford Hill.
