I got heckled the other day by a five year old in Todmorden Park when I was riding the Blood. “You’re riding a girl bike,” the little monkey quipped. His mistake though was when he tried to race Greta on her Isla bike (pictured above). She’s quite good at cornering and he over cooked it trying to stay with her in the hairpin. Result = boy face down on the track and Greta with a big victory grin on her face.

Nobody questioned Nial’s gender when he rode the bike at Wharncliffe on Wednesday. Here he is with Ewan and Sam.
