What is with these people? Just yesterday I had a grinning woman open the car window to shout something at me with two kids giggling away in the back seat. Needless to say I had my headphones in and didnt hear what was said but I knew they were taking the piss so I replied "Your cars sh!t and your kids are ugly, so f*** off".
The window closed sharply and the car pulled away.
Like attracts like. And lets be hpnest swearing at kids is really not that big or clever is it?
That said I had some lads mouth off at me on Friday night from their car. I just took satisfaction from the fact that i had had a lovely run in the local fields and they were spending their Friday night in a pub in Stevenage! I;ve had this hundreds of times over the years when cycling and try not to retaliate anymore, it's surprising how quickly it can escalate
I didn't know about the sponsership but was planning on doing this if I hadn;t been at a festival. I've done the naked bike ride in London on a Saturday afternoon a few times so this would be a walk in the park!
Keith I think you are spot on. I know that I could keep ticking over in those 6 weeks quite comfortably but pyschologically that feels inadequate.
I'm also aware that assuming doing both without injury, 16 weeks out from Brighton (my big target) I would probably be the fittest I've ever been, as opposed to not doing it and spending 6 weeks after Stevenage partying hard!
