Expression on the boy’s face says, “You’re going to crash and die any second” but I got my #dangerpanda pic and lived, deeming the weekend a success. We rode 55 miles to the normally out-of-bounds village of Imber on Salisbury Plain where the army when it’s not Easter get to play with tanks and guns and stuff.

Vintage French Ideal leather saddle with signature by legendary bicycle illustrator Daniel Rebour. Came across this on a customer’s bike in for service at Riley’s Cycles in Sherborne, Dorset. Would love to know the story.

It was peering at one of these (well, this and the Campagnolo components) in Ossie Hopkins’s bike shop window that first got me excited about cycling in the 1970s. There’s a perfectly restored example standing complete in Alltrax Cycles near Plymouth at the moment.

Meet Albert the #shopdog at @southforkracing in Braunton, North Devon.

Like most dogs with a busy bike shop, Albert needs to keep an eye on his staff to make sure there is no slacking over tea and biscuits.
