So we asked them,
1. Who you are and how do you ride?
2. What music can make you punch through concrete?
3. Who will play you in 'Velo Club Moulin' the movie?
And this is what they said;
1. Son, brother, father, husband, friend, geek, rider, dreamer, reader, fixer, scottish phototaker man. My riding style swings between 'reet smart dreamy and homestyle' and 'breathing out my ears' (arse if we're allowed to have expletives)
2. Jeru the Damaja - Ya Playin' Yaself
2. Steve McQueen - 'Racing is life, everything else is just waiting.'
1. My riding style is to always dress well on the bike, generally in as much white as possible. Fools the competition into thinking that I might have skill (or OCD)
2. Blue Monday, New Order
3. Simon Kirkness (this has to happen. cd)
1. At just over half a century old, Kenny Pryde is, remarkably, still earning a living as a cycling journalist after 20-odd, or 20 odd, years of pounding keyboards. His riding style is pure diesel. That's to say agricultural machinery which is a cylinder down and running on pink diesel. 'Twas ever thus.
2. If there is one piece of music that never fails to elicit a response, it's 'New Rose' by the Damned. "Is she really going out with him?"
3. That guy out of Grosse Pointe Blank, whassisname, him, he would play me. Failing that, John Hannah. English women think all Weegie blokes of a certain age sound like him. 'He was my North, my South...'. Cheers John Hannah!
1. An easy-going father of two who loves to ride bikes. Reasonably quick uphill, reasonably slow downhill. Smooth on the pedals but not so good at letting it flow on technical sections.
2. The Jam, Going Underground. Primal Scream, Loaded is a close second but there's no way I can punch through concrete for 7 minutes.
Good luck to all of them and welcome into our mob, wear your colours with pride and keep the faith.
