I'm sure it's about as realistic as a typical episode of Top Gear, but they do appear to have the bickering down.

It pleases me to know that Boris gets his own tailored version of "Cyclewankers!" shouted at him.

A nice looking bike. Pity Paxman was being such a twat about it. Tyres were very flat. Helmet straps were a bit slack.  And what was that front hub all about?

Someone needed to tell Paxman that the stoker signals. And they could have swapped seats on the way back.

Good fun, though. Shame to see the other Jezza leave, but he hasn't seemed that interested for a while.

All a bit of fun, playing up to cameras no doubt.

I saw Paxman on his bike today at Hyde park corner and he is a competent, stable rider!
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!
