So apparently, there is a big bike race thing starting here soon. The same big bike race thing that came in 2007 when we made a special journey to the outlaws in Sussex so I could watch it.
Anyway, this big bike race thing this year clashes with various family events around our lad's birthday, and we have discussed, and dismissed various travel and spectating options, none of which were really useful to us.
Having lunch with my brother in law today he was asking if I'd be watching the coverage on ITV, which I confirmed I was. And then we get:
MrsMC: The race goes past my friends house
Me: Sorry, dear?
MrsMC: It goes past a friends house. Geoff. At work. He lives on the race route in Sheffield.
Me: Does he really?
MrsMC: They've resurfaced the road for it and everything.
Me: Yes, they do that....
MrsMC: As he won't be able to get out with the road closed he is having a few friends round to watch it. Don't think any of them are really into it though.
Me:Well, lucky them.....
