yep, he's doing astonishing work

maybe he could wander over to balham bowls club for the vulpine fete if he's back in the smoke on the 4th?

From what I understand he is likely to arrive late evening - whatever day he finishes. His plan is sailing Cherbourg to Poole which is late morning. The 4th June is his 31st birthday as well.

I talked to him for a while on a bike ride, I caught him going up a hill that gets to 30%. He was a really nice guy and we talked a bit. Turned out he was grinding up the hill on a track bike. Saw him a week later on here and kind of chuffed he's doing so well. Closest I've come to meeting someone famous Smile

Maybe he slowed down for me... Or maybe I'm a future tour winner I just don't know it yet Smile somehow I doubt it's the latter...
But again, he was on a track bike, I should have asked what gear he was using, it was impressive though. Steepest hill I've seen and I live in Wales.
