LOL. I left Blighty in '89, but you never forget 'Bett Lynch' ! Just great, my missus wondered what I was laughing at and being a Yank she would never understand.

Yeah.... it's just a shame we are going to have to wait 'till 2015 to see them racing. That's if development rider Randy De Puniet doesn't bin them all beforehand!

Lol! Glad to see someone got the Bet Lynch reference.

Found another one of the murals tonight.....looks very much like the work of the same artist as the previous ones ....



Unfortunately I couldn't get the bike in front of it as it was in a locked industrial yard ...but this might help give it some scale ...



Had to shove the camera through the bars to get a clear shot...

..and your comment is also much appreciated, - Thanks ...glad you enjoy the thread .


On the subject of 'diversity'.... here is a bit more ..
On Sunday we didn't get out for our usual ride as the weather was pants ..... however Glasgow was pretty much closed down for the national cycling roadrace championships. So Sarah and I hopped on our bikes and cycled round parts of the 14K course to check out the action. It was pretty impressive seeing these guys whizzing through the city streets.

The men's race was 13 laps round the City ..a total of 114 miles..I was knackered just watching them ..Glasgow is built on a huge hill.

Police escort in advance of the riders...



At Charing Cross coming on to Sauchiehall Street ...





Escort coming down West George Street ..... heading towards George Square (where they filmed scenes for 'World War Z').....




Loved this guy's home-made wooden bike ....



This is how close you could get to the riders down by the river on Glasgow Green ..



The winner of the Men's race - Mark Cavendish ..leading ...
