Snowshill 005, originally uploaded by thesnodgrass.

Snowshill in the evening sun, having cycled there via Buckland with Dave Malley. Boy oh boy I was knackered getting there.

He says my bike is too small for me but he is just jealous because I only paid 84 quid for it on eBay and he paid 500 for his. I had it checked by Richard Brooks – at one time the 3rd best amateur cyclist in Britain – and he said it was bordeline but OK for size.

(That is the same Richard Brooks that was once a Michelin restaurant inspector who tasted my date & walnut loaf and awarded it 3 stars)

So up yours Malley !
