Miguel McSporran?

:mrgreen:

Welcome. Do make yourself at home. Jarvis gets a bit ticked off if we drag mud and oil over the carpets or get the chairs all wet, but otherwise it's strictly informal.

I think the only thing you're not allowed to wear is the flayed skin of other members. :-k

Unless Jarvis really likes you.:smug:

One has to test these things.

But no, for the ride itself, Things were worn under the saddle.

Worn away, from the horror at the beach ;)

The kilt has gone to be cleaned and pressed!

That's what I usually wear in here, so you should be OK.

Thanks for the warm hand on my entrance folks, allow me to introduce myself.

Trained as an Industrial Design Engineer but gave it up to become a
cycle shop worker for nearly twenty years in London, LA, and Bristol. Was a member of the top European HPV race team, second in the world in 1986 behind Gold Rush. Retrained as a plumber in response to crappy retail wages but hated it (other peoples toilets! ew!)

Got my dream job in March this year as Head of Technical services at Company of Cyclists. I am reponsible for the upkeep and maintenance of 300 bikes, leading roadshows among other things. Love it! If any organisation is doing more to get bums on bike seats I'd be surprised.

Ive driven accross the US, lived in SE Africa as a kid, lost a testicle, put in a wheelchair by a drunken copper for two months, built a loft conversion, lost both parents to cancer yet still smoke (twat!), chased a fish accross a ford on my bike, drive a Corrado, er. Been on telly (the irate cyclist in 'So you think youre a good driver?) and own a kilt.
