a young lad that comes with us riding was in no position to buy a road bike - he used an old MTB, but could keep with us on our outings (no we are no longer racers)
but he has the legs of Hoy.
However, we all chipped in and bought one of Gkam's bikes and done it up a bit for him, new wheels and away he goes.
We took advantage of the break in the weather today and got a good ride in - we didn't see young Chris's arse for dust on his new steed.
We want to pass on our sincere thanks to Gkam for letting this young lad have such a good bike, and at a good price - he is elated to say the least.
Here it is - just got back.
Here is my new steed too - nothing like being 'blown off' by a youngster on his new Allez whilst trying to catch him on this frame-up build of mine.
Again, MANY THANKS Gkam, we hope the cash helpped towards the trike - we may call in and see you in the flesh on the LEJOG next year, trike an' all.
