A rather peeved victim of a dumping has taken to Gumtree to sell his bike - along with the girlfriend who he says ‘took him for a ride’.
The South African says he is selling his Specialized road bike which his ex - who was into cycling - encouraged him to buy.
He wrote: "Bought this bike because my girlfriend was into cycling.
"She dumped me and I hate cycling. I've used in twice since I bought it. Apparently it's quite a good bike.
"I'll throw in some size 9 specialized shoes for good measure along with the ex's phone number if you ever feel like being taken for a ride."
After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.
