Rides and what to bring along!!

"BMJBOY" Wrote:I do own a Aldi Hi Viz cycling jacket, and its actually very good indeed and styled quite nicely - I wore it a lot when doing some V early morning and/or dusky evening road rides - no excuses really, its common sense - was only about £8.

I was once on a night ride along the beach wearing it, and coupled with my lights, LOTS of chavs thought I was a copper and was all quickly putting their joints out and binning their White-Lightening! - genius. Their faces where brilliant when I was close enough for them to see I wasnt plod and they has wasted their stash!

To be honest, I do have most things for most eventualities now, but its taken over 2 years to collect, always start cheap and you can upgrade as you go.

Actually I should finish that by saying, I then get/got called all sorts of names and generally harrassed - as someone in a cycling helmet and high-viz isnt "cool" to a chav.

I only ride in the mornings now, its actually quite dodgy along the beach at night now.
