I want that bike. It's a Mamod-bicycle hybrid.

I wondered what the point of the bike was then I heard his whistle! If he wants a TV programme he might need to moderate his language a bit!

Thanks for watching and all your kind words. Thanks for the unkind words too: if I get another chance I'll try to do better. But you're right, it was very rushed. That's the nature of live TV. They fluffed the introduction (should have panned to me by the table at the start of the prog) and I think they over-ran a bit with the car stuff.

I'll just leave you with this. A colleague has discovered the perfect accessory for all those folks who ride to work with a backpack. Get yours here! :lol:

Nice shirt :)

Needs some vent holes at the rear though

What I find the most ironic about Working Lunch is that the show's presenters, organizers, producers and such would like to imagine that high flying, important business people are watching. In reality they're either working or having lunch at a very expensive restaurant. It's the same for the Politics Show, it's just retired people eating there dinner who are watching. :wink:

Working Lunch used to be a very good financial programme then the BBC changed the format and the presenters, dumbed it down and it is now a very juvenile Blue Peter. Seeing that CTC logo on the shirt has just convinced me it has to go!

Love it!
I think TV is all like that now, that's why we've done away with ours.

I've just watched it.

I agree with others that Chris's slot was good but rushed. I enjoyed the 'donkey' line, and have since used it to good effect!

I hope the irritating chap who did the demo of his daft rucksack, multi-tool and bar bag watched that bit as he would have learned far more than he appeared to know when doing his sketch!

I have to disagree slightly about ruck sacks - I'm perfectly happy to use one if doing a short commute - say the 10 mins max down to the local library and shops. When you stop it's much less hassle than a pannier - easier to carry around the shops, and no faffing around trying to clip it on and off the rack (which for some designs of pannier can be a pain).

Of course, for longer journeys I agree that carrying stuff on the bike is better, although my ideal would be a wire shopping basket on the rear rack with the ruck sack chucked into it.

Rode for a lot of years using a duffle bag. (and a bike of course) - never had a sweaty back.
