Ride Me, Baby!

Calling all UK mountain bikers!

You may be aware of the UK governments 'Cycle To Work' scheme that The Jagmeister was blogging about yesterday, but if you're clever, you can blag yourself some tasty new machinery at ridiculously low prices!

For example, if I were to try and replace my Morewood up there with a brand new complete bike, then it'd probably cost me the thick end of £2000+ or so (difficult to work out as Morewood don't supply complete bikes, you'd have to build your own), but going through the CycleScheme policy, you'd get the same bike for £1174.47.

No brainer!

Let the good times roll!

I'm buying a bike. God help other road users. I intend to add spikes poking out of the wheels so if any car driver gets too close....

He only rides that bike because he is shit scared of the red one in the background. The red one is just there for show and so he can try and impress people with the quote "180mph superbike", which, of course, the bike is nothing of the sort.
