When you see a group of inexperienced riders and half of you thinks 'great to see people out on their bikes' but the other half thinks 'but I hope none of them suddenly change direction and crash into me as I shoot past'.

Really? I get fresh Coffee and Cake and Biscuits when I visit my bike shop...and free use of bearing presses...facing tools...and even complimentary wheel truing I'm not sure you're getting your moneys worth from Wiggle.

I would add:

"....when you went up Wrynose pass on a steel Mercxx with 54/42 - 12/23 and came down the other side with campag deltas, and funnily enough you didn't die"

Maybe I'm showing my age  1
