I used to meet up at the local road club's tuesday night crit meets around a airfield perimeter track.
Never in my life have I met people who had so much in common who could find nothing nice to say to you.
Tried to help out in the bunch, got squeezed.
Tried to join a break, got ridden off.
Tried to just do my own thing, got 'told' to be more of a team player.
Bollox to them all, I have a road bike and I use it to ride on the road. Just 'cos I like cheese doesn't make me a mouse.
Just 'cos I have a road bike doesn't make me a roadie.
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
