I usually whine about cyclists being unfriendly, but this morning, one cyclist said “Good Morning” and one did a nod. Shock! They were also commuters.
I had to do a double take. At first I thought I was hearing and seeing things.
Of course, they could be ‘northerners’, Irish or American tourists…
Now do find ‘southern cyclists’ plain weird, although I don’t really include London cyclists under that umbrella.
Now if they were Tory cyclists, I did wonder whether I was ‘wearing Tory clothes’ and they ‘considered me safe’ to talk to and ‘not like a communist misfit’.
Dammingly, I was wearing pinstripe trousers and a blue stop. Maybe that says it all:-)
I think I will wear commie red tomorrow.
Another strange thing happened. At work we have a few ‘dusty old Tory toffs’ who come in for their networking meetings in blazers (yes, people still wear those), with their jags and BMWS. I overheard Blazer One saying that he saw another Blazer out cycling. In fact, it was such a shock for Blazer One, that he just had to mention it to him.
Still that’s good news, one Tory Toff on a bike. at long last and not driving the wrong way on a motorway and incurring all these self-inflicted fines.
