I found that I could recognise friends on their bikes from a fair distance by their pedalling style and their position on the bike.

Our slowest rider sat on his Dawes Lightning like a sack of potatoes. You can guess what we called him.

With your love of Safety Cameras have you been watching the series CAPTURE on the BBC .... Thought provoking ...
