Apparently I'm a "roadie" now
I got referred to as a "Roadie" (complete with capital R) by someone who had seen me ride a recent brevet. I must admit it made me chuckle - for all I was using my then brand new SPD shoes and pedals, my hugely expensive (£7.99) jersey from the local discount store, baggy shorts over my Spandex (primarily for humanitarian reasons, although the extra pockets are handy) I'm still a fair way the wrong side of 200 pounds and was one of the slower riders around the circuit.
I had to admit having a bit of a chuckle when I realised the person the guy was describing as a "Roadie" was me
