VC Walcot Easyriders today was a 55km ‘Fathers & Sons’ Fest with Richard and son Jake, Basil (leading) with son Tom, John and son Morgan and yours truly with the boy Luke. Vicky centre stage here outside the gates of RAF Colerne played the headmistress role, keeping the boys encouraged when the weather took a turn for the ‘epic’ although the teenagers of course well used to playing rugby at school in all conditions took it all in their stride. According to Luke it was his favourite ride of the year so far.

Following up on last post about @rivbikes this great print by @velodave aka Dave Flitcroft is inspired by their Grant Petersen. Quite a fan club, it seems, although according to someone on twitter who obviously knows him, if it really was Grant the basket would be fully laden and there’d be “a frayed piece of cloth tape flapping in the wind :)”

Hmmm, wonder where the inspiration for Mr Millar’s shoes today came from, eh @JamesStraffon? Here, or here maybe.

These are David Millar’s shoes for Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne Brussels Kuurne and the weapon he’ll be using for his Classics Campaign.

Lovely Will at @Cadencebikeshop in Bath sent me this new digital catalog(ue) for @rivbikes in California here. Will like me loves the style of its owner Grant Petersen and I’ve just enjoyed reading his virtual pages ‘cover to cover’ with heaps of practical advice about cycling especially if your interest, like mine, is ‘unracing’. The section on their warranty policy is worth reading and a lesson in how to speak to your customers’ presumed integrity and common sense. A beautiful thing to see.

Behind the counter at our @RaleighBikes_UK stockist Cyclerama in Exeter, Mike has the card for the Ti Raleigh team launch in, what, 1979? Recognise among others Joop Zoetemelk who was at the latest launch in France on Wednesday. Good to see the team colours back.

Brilliant bike shops: Dosnoventa in Barcelona


Funnily enough, this was *exactly* the conversation we had this morning prior to the @sulisscorpions youth cyclo-cross coaching session. I can see a nice Raleigh &#8216;cross bike in our family&#8217;s future #notallbad
