Anyway, back to reality. I find that my colleague and teammate Colin has secretly been doing some serious training on his vintage Dawes Galaxy having done a tour of 40 miles around Leicestershire on Saturday morning. No carbon forks or frame, toe clips or SPD system for him – he’s just naturally fit. It's sickening as he is 10 years older than me! I need to get some more miles in!
Talking of reality, the news that tanker drivers have voted in favour of strike action leads me to wonder if we are going to see scenes of long queues of motorists, once more panic buying fuel as happened with previous disputes and fuel protests.
Wouldn't it be nice if instead of queues at petrol stations, people queued up at their local bike shops to buy new bikes or have their old underused bikes serviced. Having got my first proper road bike, I was having some problems with arm strain and my headset didn't seem right. Thanks to the top advice from the guys at On Your Bike in Birmingham, those problems have be sorted. Local bike shops do an excellent job and that’s one queue I'd definately be happy to see.
