While out riding today I pass the wife driving the kids and their cousins to swimming.
As the roads were bad (wet) I had on my cheap kit. Karrimor tights and shorts over them (a tenner the lot from sports direct) and a crane (lidl or aldi I don't recall which) jacket.
I stopped for a drink and read my text which said, in part, your cycling kit looked cheap and nasty why not buy yourself some proper kit. Get what you like.
I replied that it was old kit. She then says, seeing as its soon to be our anniversary why not get good kit and a new bike and keep old kit/allez for winter, etc seeing as I had got the bike nearly 2 yrs ago now.
She even said she is prepared to give road riding a go herself and will borrow our son's TDF next time I go out.
Had to share that.
