Bike Porn Friday: Protection


Some nice policemen turned out outside of the office today.  They were surprised that the Croissant wasn't made out of crabon given how light it was, but rolled up their sleeves and poured all sorts of UV acid onto it, kind of like sprinkles, but with a secret code.  And gave me this flashy sticky to put on near the bottom bracket.  The Croissant now looks very nerdy, but is all protected from bike thieves in preparation for the Rapha Festive 500.  I suspect it will, however, fail at both.

Nonetheless, Flotsnoo!

Bike Porn Friday: Let's Get Itchy - the Tweed Run

Probably the best-ever view of a Cycle Superhighway



Saturday saw yet another Tweed Run.  Better attended than the Monticello Tweed Ride, it must be said (yes, report still to come), but open to (misplaced, one feels) accusations of selling out, Dr Matt and Friend of the Trois V, Emily, rented a bike from the friendly Adam at Cloud 9 Cycles, and undertook a twelve mile metropolitan cycle ride, with, it must be said, a bit of style.  We enjoyed the tea, admired the bravery of the marshals, and tittered at the self-regarding Made-in-Chelsea folks (who seemed harmless, and arguably will make tasty snacks come the post-Euro apocalypse, which is now eight days away).

Meanwhile, a club ride of some sort before Christmas is the current aim: I'm itching for lycra.

Flotsnoo!
