Well at least they may be importing drivers with a good level of training - http://www.20yearcycleride.man.co.uk/en/transaid/

I thought that sponsored ride might have made a good little cycle ride but unfortunately it does have that all too common requirement that you must wear a helmet for "health and safety reasons". I am not the sort of person who likes to risk their life, so I think I will just go on a normal ride which isnt as dangerous! :roll: :roll:

I see that they are doing one in Scotland as well. That should give the local truckers a case of schizophrenia and self-hatred. :wink:

Absolutely, I have cancelled my entry for the Tour De France for the same reason :roll:
