Hi-viz confession

by nostromo   April 28, 2013  

Following advice from a fellow forumite, I've taken to stashing a hi-viz gilet in the off-side pocket of my jersey with a small piece of it flapping free to attract attention.

But yesterday everything clouded over, then it started to hail, the wind increased and the temperature plummeted so I, I ... wore it.

I'm so sorry.

As long as it's a Rapha Hi-viz gilet we won't judge.

Burn the witch ! Big Grin

At least you weren't the chap saw in the hail yesterday. Nice white castelli gilet - with no sleeves on his jersey, but with a pair of armwarmers. Exposed shoulders for the Liza Minelli look!

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

But is it a REPLICA Rapha hi-viz ??

You'll have to read the Rapha Sky kit story to understand what i'm on about Devil

I take it you've put your house on the market already?
If you need to leave the house, do so at night wearing a balaclava until things pass over.

Fluro Gabba, it's the only way.

Violence is not the answer, but it will do until we find out what is.

John Peel used to play a lot of fluoro gabba back in the day.
