Well that was an interesting read
I will have a word with Mrs Bling as we are also planing a trip to France next year with the TinTent so it may or may not clash...

Plenty of other weeks to go to Frogland without clashing with this monster of a weekend...plus it wouldn't be as colourful without you there again Clive.

Would be really good to see yah again Clive, and if you come across my legs that I lost somewhere on Great Dun Fell ...chuck them in the car and bring them with you



I still chuckle about you offering advice to Geoff Waugh at the last event :facepalm:


Geoff Waugh idly wonders in camp armed with a few big buck camera’s proceeds to take a couple of leisurely pics of the Antiques bike parked up – Mike Muz brought quite a collection

Mr Bling calmly get up and walks over to him and to this day I’ve no idea if Clive knew who he was (I strongly suspect he did) and proceeds to tell him (at length) how to take a decent picture of a bike. :shock:

The conversation that ensued was both direct and shall we say “rather Earthy”

To this day I wonder what Geoff Waugh was really thinking – although he didn’t appear to be backwards at coming forward with his thoughts but stayed just inside the boundaries of polite

To be fair Clive it looks like he knows what he’s doing with a camera

Any way.... Tell Mrs Bling to make this a stop off on the way to France and leave your Bike with Muz when you go to France... if you get it back with a 5 foot seatpost you'll know he took it for a spin round the block

whooorr now your talking ! ^^^


met Steve Behr at the Malverns, have to admit he's the nicer of the two (quiet unassuming guy) so probably would have politely thanked Clive for his advise

I never realised he was responsible for so many legendary pics check em out https://stockfile.photoshelter.com/gall ... LvDHU4dw4/

Totally agree with your assessment of Behr, met him a few times and I helped (just a little) with his online campaign to garner votes for his and Tym Manley’s joint nomination to the MTB Hall of Fame. Plan was to fly out there and make it a British party, with Peaty inducted as well. Unfortunately Behr & Manley didn’t get enough votes so I couldn’t bring myself to go knowing they’re not part of the party.

Geoff Waugh is a cool dude though, proper.
