Wally of the week
A long-standing tradition is the awarding of the Wally of the Week tee shirt. Here is a list of those who stand accused of incompetence and general stupidity.
Slipping the wheel while riniging and walking off to have a cup of tea while others fixed it. Also cycling into a rather large pot hole (aka Bennett trap...)
Bike falling off car on M18. Double puncture. Getting lost on a straight road.
Falling of bike while going up hill, and wheel falling off.
Bringing two left trainers - another quiet week!
