First Cyclist "Have you seen this here CitroJim yet?"
Second Cyclist "He is behind this group"
First Cyclist "Great, we are ahead of him then"
Second Cyclist "Nope, he already has lapped us at the hilly section"
First Cyclist "But this race is all hilly sections!"
Second Cyclist "I know, and he is already 2 laps up!"

Anyway, I hope that you are enjoying your eighteenth birthday. :D

And WHEN do they say that life begins, Jim?

Well, for me, it was when I was around 55 ;)

And it's just got better and better ever since...

I went out for a little picnic today as part of a gentle and most pleasant bike tour looking for good photo opportunities..

Well, according to the saying, "Life begins at 40", so it looks like your 'mental' age and 'real' age have managed to match up again!

Gabriel has done a great job of swallowing the lot with space to spare!

Good good!

Not the most stuff that's been crammed in the back of that car - was most grateful for the self levelling suspension on one trip over to Rugby when I must have brought half a tonne of lighting kit back with me...

I'm bringing my wetsuit Mike ;) I will be doing a bit of swimming in the sea :D

Thanks for the video :lol:

Looking almost as damp there as it is here... Hopefully the weather will improve but I do have my wet cycling gear packed and I don't mind cycling in the wet...
