RWC#3: Fat Lad and the Seven Deadly Sins of Cycling

Garth poised this weeks consideration for us…


I think I’m as guilty of this as any recreational cyclist out there. Always on the lookout for the new and shiny. To be honest I’m not as bad of some and I rarely fall for marketing spiel. Buying my last bike entailed many readings in print and online and a week long thorough thrashing of a demo rig.


It’s not called Fat Lad Rides again for nothing 😉


Ooh, yeah I’m greedy. Blessed with good trails, great kit and the best riding buddies yet I still want more of each.


I can be guilty of this, most definitely. Minor mechanicals or wind weather can be be enough to drive me towards the XBOX. Thankfully these events are rare and getting rarer. Although I really do need to sort out that bloody road bike…


I have only one hate. The subject of every tea break and pub encounter across this green and pleasant isle. The fecking Great British Weather. Hate it, hate it, hate it! The inconsistent, bloody minded, and 99% miserable skies under which we call home drive me crazy.


See above, I hear the Mediterranean region is nice…


Pride… yeah I’m proud. Dead proud of the fitness I’ve gained, the weight lost and the awesome people cycling has catapulted me into orbit around. I couldn’t wish for much more.
