Hero of the day

Got to be Nelly, fixing people's bikes between sessions (often unpaid apparently, come on guys, you know who you are, its the poor guys day off for goodness sake), plus looking after his own bike which he had only finished building the day before.

Yep...big up to the guy.

Had problems with my alarm from about 11.00 onwards, he had a quick look and managed, with a quick cut and tape, to give me a temporary fix so I managed one session after lunch, before it played up terminally...and I took early leave

Oh! Yeah!
Best say thanks for the high energy drink and the flapjack and the bag of crisps, before Rockhopper slaps my hand next time I see him for taking advantage!

But actually...I see his point! There was some comment made about Nelly never missing an opportunity, that Peed me off!!!!!

It was his day too...and he gives his time and advice feely and willingly 99.9% of the time at the club meets and stuff!

ps (can I have my fiver now Nelly!)
