Make room, make room!

The week’s almost done, so here’s a video that will put a smile on your face with a public service announcement on behalf of all cyclists, courtesy of Ride Wide Media.

Ride Wide is blogger @veloevol and blogger and Bikeability instructor @Londonneur, and his son.

There really isn’t much else to say, except that apparently the suit is “ideal winter wear” according to Ride Wide. We think we’ll stick with Roubaix and softshells.

Our official grumpy Northerner, John has been riding bikes for over 30 years since discovering as an uncoordinated teen that a sport could be fun if it didn't require you to catch a ball or get in the way of a hulking prop forward.

Road touring was followed by mountain biking and a career racing in the mud that was as brief as it was unsuccessful.

Somewhere along the line came the discovery that he could string a few words together, followed by the even more remarkable discovery that people were mug enough to pay for this rather than expecting him to do an honest day's work. He's pretty certain he's worked for even more bike publications than Mat Brett.

The inevitable 30-something MAMIL transition saw him shift to skinny tyres and these days he lives in Cambridge where the lack of hills is more than made up for by the headwinds.
