Thank you.

Yeah but there's a whole new bunch of cyclists that have bought themselves road bikes in the last year who didn't get to experience the initial thrill. Now that they are CSA members they want to be part of the 'scene'.

And quite frankly, that's fair. We probably need to be a bit less elitist than we are and stop giving people out riding their bikes crap just because they don't know as much about it as we do.

Everyone is someone else's hubbard. Except Jens.
Two wheels good, four wheels bad. In a pinch, three will do...

Even when they are wearing the full TDF spotty climbers outfit?

I wasn't giving them crap, just pointing out that what is not as exciting to some may still be quite a thrill to others. New CSA members have obviously picked up the 'racing bug' and their excitement about all things racing is just as high as it was for us the day our first licence arrived in the mail.

Even when they're wearing inappropriate kit, yes.

Why not get T-Shirts in FDJ colours with "Where's Arthur? :-(" in large letters.
Remember: It is always darkest just before it goes pitch black...

Due to popular demand we have made a selection!

You know the rest kiddos....

(No t-shirts at this stage, unless someone wants to volunteer to get them printed, take orders, distribute etc...)
The ideal number of bikes is one... I just can't decide which one.
