Actually did anyone see that elderly post lady on her pedal cycle riding up the hill towards us, I thought she was going to have a heart attack along the way!

Yes!!! I did

Amusing things I spotted

1) An old man struggling to cycle with a flat back tyre when we were at the third petrol stop after lunch

2) people standing outside their houses to watch us go past. In particular there was a mum standing with her little daughter who waved so I waved back (not all us bikers are scary ya know..)

It made me smile when the markers all started doing the YMCA at me as I approached on my bike At first I just thought WTF are they doing. Didn't take long for the penny to drop though. So which one of the markers came up with that idea? I'm going to guess Uncle Ian...

We're riding thru a village, nice and slow being very good. A couple of little boys across the road on the pavment riding their bikes.

He was all of about 6 or 7 and how fast he went ftrom grin factor to panic just cos of a poppy exhaust was just hillarious to me (maybe i have a sick sense of humour or something, i dunno)

Anyone else see this??
Don't know who? I s'pose with all those purple sparkly bikes with melting number plates in front of you, it could've been hard to identify the culprit
I don't think I was trying to make him nearly stack it (was there a corner or something coming up?), but I laugh out loud inside my lid when I saw it happen.

Yeah it wasn't me at all even though I was ready to do the 2 line swerve thingymajig for real when I saw he wobbling about (not 'cause I was really close to him when it happened or anything ).
Zig you're so cruel doing that to the poor lad
