Nice photo Ron. Mick comes in from the cold. He looks very good.

Nice to put a face to the man who causes so much conflict on here

Well Mick you have shattered my illusions - i thought you were quite a bit younger somehow! Join the club and use your bus pass!

Another locked gate, this is what us law abiding cyclist have to put up with on our canal bank rides.
Me stuck on one side of the gate and owd Ron stuck on the other, all because of eastern Wigan motorbike riders.

Should have said -you look quite fit must be all that cycling!

Blimey Mick! How fast does that 'Lectric bike go, is it so fast that you need goggles ?

Comment by: . Ozymandias . on 25th September 2017 at 09:29

Like the goggles Mick. Way to go mate.

Comment by: Anne on 25th September 2017 at 09:57

I suspect the goggles are a disguise but the green jacket is a dead giveaway.
Very nice portrait Ron.

Comment by: Howard P on 25th September 2017 at 13:43

I suspect that's how I knew you'd look.

Comment by: Garry on 25th September 2017 at 13:45

Your older than I thought, no wonder you're always mourning lol.

Comment by: Veronica on 25th September 2017 at 14:17

Anne we've enough 'suspicious'characters on here!!! :0 ))

DTease it was Ozymandias who advised me to get myself some goggles, they keep the wind and insects out of your eyes and keep you a bit warmer.

Mick's picture of Ron on 6th July 2017 was a good one and Ron's repaid the compliment nicely! Thanks to you both for your photos :o)

I suspect they "steam up" aswell Mick.

Personally, I use a couple of tea strainers Mick. Joined together at the bridge of the nose, then with the handles bent to curve around the ears, I find them quite effective in protecting my eyes from insects and other forms of airborne detritus. And besides, they're much cheaper.

Comment by: DTease on 25th September 2017 at 15:17

Good idea Mick. I believe the Oozalem Bird used to fly backwards for the same reason.

Comment by: Mary on 25th September 2017 at 15:43

You are nailed on for a part in Dr Who Mick . Not sure if they would allow your bike on set
though.

Comment by: Alan on 25th September 2017 at 17:29

It's the famous Mick.

Comment by: Ellen on 25th September 2017 at 20:30

Good to see the tables turned on Mick
by Ron!(LOL)

Veronica, you spoke my thoughts entirely.

Comment by: Veronica on 25th September 2017 at 22:32

And he calls Ron 'Owd' !

Comment by: Cyril on 26th September 2017 at 17:39

Anyone seeing him in that outfit would think he was about to go and ride a Kawasaki 850cc and not a sit up and beg.

It's Foggy Dewhurst!
