    Rode past my age again today!

    Second time this month to do slightly over 60 miles, 2 miles beyond my 58 years and this time with the wife. No complaints as she was on her new Guru which she picked up 2 days ago and could not stop raving about. This was on the clubs annual event ride and she tickled pink about all the comments she was getting on how great her bike looked. She thinks her new ride is sweet and I think she'll now be out riding more because of it!

    Evolo, had it painted white with orange lettering, orange tires and handlebar tape. Looks great.

    Well done both

    And about the new bike - certainly the right colour, as all here except the curmugeonly,aesthetically insensitive and insignificant minority will attest
