I’D RIDE THAT

Sadly, my reaction to seeing these two fotos was …. “I’d ride that”

Even sadder was the fact that I was referring to the bike!

.

It must be auld age … or a compliment to the lovely Mrs Who’s charms?

.

The lovely lady, by the way, is Victoria Pendleton

At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Pendleton won the gold medal in the Women’s Individual Sprint Event?

The nude shot is a recreation of the famous photo of Lance Armstrong.

By the way, Lance’s autobiography “IT’S NOT ABOUT THE BIKE” is a brilliant read, even if you have no interest whatsoever in cycling or, like myself, no interest inĀ sport.

.

It’s a truly inspiring story where Lance gives a very unflattering account of his early life, being raised by a single parent, subsequent rise to fame, andĀ eventual fight against cancer.

.

His recovery was all the more amazing in that he refused to be involved in all the “spiritual-miraculous-god-bless-amerika” type nonsense that the media tried to foist on his fight against cancer
