I hereby retire my invisibility cloak



There's also data that suggests wearing a helmet decreases passing distances
Helmets are possibly more dangerous


I'll keep wearing the hi-viz
My only rule on the bike is being seen

Just picked this up for myself for a fucking song!
When you say "song" you mean €479.00??

I clearly flogged off bikes a bit on the cheap side.

I still have my favourite though, an old Raleigh 531 with a Superbe Pro group on it.

The worst story I heard was a mate who was over in the US with me. He rode in the Olympics and had a track bike, and a road bike custom built for him, Irish colours, complete with his name on the top tube.

He left those bikes with a pile of other bikes, all of his race bikes basically, hung up in his old man's garage.

A few years afterwards he was back visiting, and went out into the garage to see his bikes... gone. Every one of them.

He asked the Da where he's moved all his bikes?

"Oh those things? I put them out for the bins years ago."
