thats not far off my GF’s get up for her lunchtime blast on the bike – you just need to add ski-mitts (for 8 months of the year). Riding through the next village she passed some 5 year old girls playing in their front garden who shouted after her
“hey lady! hey laaaaaady!……. you made me wet ma self!”
I can only assume/hope that he had dropped off his TT bike at the bike shop en route to work, and that he was due to be actually racing TT later in the evening. There’s no other explanation that is acceptable.
