The Halfords Tour Series is pitching up at Canary Wharf this Thursday. Since it is directly outside my office, and because anything to do with cycling is vastly better than working, I thought - work, weather and wife permitting - I might pitch up and take a dekko. I may even let Halfords try to tell me that they are interested in cycling as opposed to being box shaped retailers of interesting plastic car clutter with no customer service and less knowledge of biycles.
The weather forecasters are promising us Cats, Dogs and everything short of a plague of frogs, frankly, so it may be that I decide that a detailed investigation of the submarine performance of high end road bikes isn't strictly what the doctor ordered, but assuming Noah keeps his family dingy on the stocks for another day I was wondering if there were any PdCers were thinking of doing the same.
I will probably be wandering round in decidedly unflattering skin tight, orange, PdC lycra to show the flag, so should be reasonably identifiable if you want to come say hello (and / or avoid like the plague). Alternatively we can nominate a place to meet / avoid and meet up.
The course sadly has a gross climb of about 5 vertical metres so will presumably be a combination of sprinting and shouting, but could be good fun anyway.
