So I was out on a guided ride yesterday minding my own business, when my client asked me how John (my partner in the cycling biz) and I met. I started in with the standard story of how ‘we met on the Internet’, through my blog, when David (client) cuts in with, ‘oh, I know that blog’. I thought he meant 44-5’s website, but he assured me it was this blog. Then he says ‘what did you used to call that thing?’, and again I made the mistake of thinking he was talking about the current name – Vicious Cycle – but again I was foiled and it turns out that David has been reading my ramblings since the ‘Mr. Patterson Goes to Languedoc’ days, which, of course, you don’t remember, dear reader, because it’s been years.
Anyway, other than the ride up the Gorges de la Nesque being fun, beautiful and convivial, it was also a bit of a spin down memory lane and reminded me once again that even though I might not hear from some of you (David has never commented on the blog) there might be the odd one out there who is actually reading the crap I tap.
Thanks, David, for finally showing yourself.
