You can almost hear him muttering "Never again, never again".

Not sure about this one. Is he exhausted, injured or worse? Interested to read other comments on it.

Looks like a tough ride. I hope this is not Mick.

Condition were indeed horrendous - paths muddy - most were drenched by the time we got to Burscough hence quite a few went in the charity shop to het 'new attires' and a few items of 'bright ladies clothing' were also purchased - hence the photo - well done to all 82 who turned up - and raised a substantial amount for 'The Christie' - see you all in July for the Steve Prescott Foundation Ride

A seat like that and no rear mud guard.....no wonder the state of him.

He must have been tired to lie down on that slutchy path. It's always good to help others - well done whoever he is!

He reminds me of Howard, having just been discovered with Marina and clobbered by Pearl! Well done to him and all of them on the charity ride.
