Velominatus: Dr C

Order: Level 2 Velominatus

God loves a trier

@Dr C's activity:

Brett’s fine Nick Cave article got me thinking about music and cycling. We spend lots of time alone on our bikes. The bike is on autopilot, it stays upright from second to second, freeing up our brains to consider anything or nothing. Music might be the only riding companion we have but it has to be the right music. Being as Pro as possible is...

  1. True, the earplugs are a shortcut to the Rearly Gates, but a compromise is to jam your phone in your central helmet vent, vertivally, much like a Shark fin (I assume this is how Vince Nibali got his name You do look like a twat, but Barbra Streisand has … »

  1. Indeed, Geraint Thomas is my favourite rider, not least for the crappy but entertaining FB postings he comes up with – just a good lad – I particularly loved his teambus doorway comments on Stage 5 when he said it was really tough to lose Froome, and ever… »

  2. I thought of you Frank when I saw this for some obscure reason https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151946403112058 »

  3. Are you sure you have not just grown another 4mm taller? I have a good video to post about this (well, vaguely, at best, borderline relevant), but shalln’t until you explain how I post a vid link in it’s full glory as a large coloured square with a white… »

  2. @Dr C Scratch that, they are actually climbing from the other side and descending the way we went up and down – hell of a descent in that case! It is soooo fast on the bottom 1/3 just before Bormio – yikes….. brown trousers »

  3. Can you not hack into Eurosport somehow? – that said, only showing the last 3 hours, so will only see the second half of the Stelvio presumably Shame, as having climbed both the Stelvio and the Gavia Pass, I reckon the Gavia is the one to see, as much mo… »

  4. @sthilzy He knows he beaten – shame, much more fun when he loses the rag Good to see Rigo getting some exposure as team leader after all his donkey work at Sky – justifies his shift in teams – interesting to see how second string skyteam manage to loo… »

  5. Anyone found a link to a Cuddles post race interview yet….. just askin? »

The divisive nature of Rule #29 is not to be underestimated. It is but a humble satchel, but our rejection of its use sends people completely out of their minds. One fine gentleman even threatened my editor at Cyclist Magazine with cancellation of his subscription on the basis that they published an article wherein I espoused the virtues of goin...

  1. I felt my comment to be so fascinating, that I posted it twice »

  2. So has anyone actually changed a flatted tub on a ride? I have yet to try to strip a tub of a rim, but looking t the Zipp video, it looks like the sort of thing you can only do after a hearty breakfast on a sunny morning off I have three sets of tubulars… »

  1. @piwakawaka I loved that – Sir Brad setting out his stall for TdF inclusion – the word imperious came to mind – fine sight watching a trackie riding a long climb – a lot of doubting was evident in the line behind him – classy »

  2. Battle of the non time triallers vs the poor time triallers Would you Adam’n’Eve it, the entire city of cycle hating Belfast has been dressed in pink – possibly an out pouring of gayness which is so long denied by our politicians, or maybe because they t… »
