Congratulations on the ride. I really hope I can make it next year.
Interesting choice of footwear, too. Was it easier without toe clips?
I don't suppose the organisers would let you use those ugly plastic
clips. They would be a good compromise though.
And about the jerseys: what exactly is the rule? I have a lot of
jerseys in my collection that are knitted acrylic rather than proper wool.
Do the jerseys actually have to be real sheep's wool?
I always wear shorts and that kind of shoe. For me it works fine. Apart from that it fits nice, you don't have to take a shower before you start BBQ'ing. This is perfection. BBQ in lycra isn't.
James wore a jersey that was pretty sure an acrylic-wool mixture and he got the bottle and cheese. The unfortunate Dutch was wearing a team Skill-Skala jersey. Nicely matching with his early 80s Gazelle in Skill-Skala colours, but lycra-ish.
