...in the other direction, just after the turning on (your) left for Welton Le Wold, about midday, you were on what looked like a Ribble Winter Trainer...

I did acknowledge you (or try to :-) ) and say hello back, but I had just set a (very poor) PR on said climb and was a little out of breath. It probabaly came out as a 'hhrrmmmppphh' . Honest.

Didn't want you to think I was being an censored ! :D

    Just do what I do. Tug on the underside of the front of your helmet a la tip your hat. Sometimes I am breathing too hard to let out anything understandable.

    I do this - and a bit of a grimace to let people know that you're not ignorant, just knackered because you've been cycling like a demon.*
