My annual pilgrimage to Northwich to meet up with Nikos and ride in circles round the town centre. Though not with blue underlighting and a baked bean can exhaust.
It's enough to put you off camping…in a schoolboy error I left my earplugs on the bike & thus was kept awake first by the sound of the rain falling and then by the howling gale. Rain inside the tent again – I feel like I must be doing something wrong. There was another tentipi on the football pitch looking much more stable than mine…
Me to queuejumping man at Technical Control: “i'm actually in the queue too you know”
QM:”oh, I just saw a road bike and thought…”
Me:”no worries…” (which meant, a road bike with a Thundersprint Paddock Pass and 3 technical control stickers from previous years? This is no ordinary road bike. This is Ruby Thursday and she is here because Frank invites her. But I let him go ahead only because he was pushing a very nice vintage Ducati)
