What a day

At 1300 on Saturday I went to work, due to finish at 2300 I eventually got home at 1030 Sunday, 3 1/2 hours sleep then back to work. I didn't mint as I am saving for a road bike. Day off today, as it was not raining as it should have I went for a cycle to clear my head. Thirty odd beautiful B road country miles later I went to Tri Sports Letchworth to buy water bottles and holders to put on my hybrid.
I left with the water bottles and holders but as I was getting on my bike I saw the Ridley Orion I was saving for, it had been reduced as it was the last one left. I have to go back soon to have a fitting and collect the Orion, shoes etc, etc I bought as well.

Has anything like this happened to you? Why do I want my clothing to colour coordinate with my bike, I know it wont make me ride faster? Have I caught a bug or some thing? :D

  • Of course it does.. who's spreading rumours to the contrary. Don't forget the matching helmet and pump

    We suffer for our sport. I have to buy new arm warmers due to the fact I am getting a patch of skin exposed between jersey sleeve and arm warmer top. Unacceptable. My wife does not understand. She would not understand even more if she knew the true cost of my gear...... :cry:
