What makes TM cringe

What makes our Team Mechanic cringe.

1. Bike Dipping.

Dipping bikes in the River Mole after Digginwell Lane on the1998 three Cathedrals ride.

Dipping bikes in the River Mole to remove the the grinding sand picked up on Digginwell Lane at the start of the 1998 Three Cathedrals (Guildford, Rochester, Canterbury) ride in aid of the roof fund for St John The Baptist Church, Findon.

TM looks on in despair at his colleagues actions.


2. The state of Budd’s (!) wheel.

No comment on the original owner of the bike, of course.
