We’re all cyclists now

Three blokes. Two talking. One cafe. Lunchtime.

…so you have been doing a bit then?

Yeah. Up for more.

Roman Road?

Not on weekends, but can do the week.

Let’s sort it.

All nod.

The fourth cross bike of the day flies past in the opposite direction. ¾ length shorts. Racing cap. Rucksack. Body movement suggests new rider.

Two lads pass on fixies. No brakes, unstable, fighting uphill.

Team sky kit. Lots. Garmin kit. Less. A reasonable lick, a blur of ankles.

A young lady gently rolls through the park. Clean bike. Polished springs beneath saddle. Wicker basket astride bars.

It’s started to happen. We’re all cyclists now.
