    Chatted to that Ron Atkinson footballer chap and his wife on the top of clent. Think he was grateful to talk to someone who had no interest in the sport

    Does that count?

    Michael Elphick. Having a BBQ with friends in the garden of an isolated house in Languedoc. He shouted NICE ARSE as I passed. Fairly unmistakable…

    Ken Hames out on his bike stopped to help one of our group after a tree branch in the eye incident. I realise that he may not actually be that famous to some but he was a jolly nice chap who went out of his way to help. The Beyond Boundaries TV programme he did was pretty inspirational.

    Bonnie Tyler. My brother almost rode into her in Mumbles.

    She opened my cousins record shop in The Uplands back in the 80s!

    That would be the place I bought ‘Misplaced Childhood’ by Marillion in 1985 or thereabouts. The only album I ever bought there.

    Graham Taylor was in front of me last week in the Post Office, (not biking but posting the days orders out so still bike related). Lovely guy, asked him to come back to the Villa to sort the mess out, He said ‘you gotta be kidding’ which we both laughed at.

    I followed the “whistler hardtail” video guy down Dirt Merchant at Whistler a couple of times. Couldn’t keep up. I also saw Kelly McGarry there I think.

    **** me that Theroux geezer gets about 😐

    Not really whilst riding, but got flown back first class on BA after a bike accident in Bolivia, had Sophie Ellis Bexter in the bed/ seat thing next to me and she woke me up as I was snoring badly after a mixture of opiates and red wine! She was actually really nice though but was a bit embarrassing!

    **** me that Theroux geezer gets about

    I sat next to him and his wife/girlfriend at a table in an Ikea restaurant having a full on bad ass argument about a wardrobe. I sympathised but it was quite embarrassing trying to look like I wasn’t listening in.

    On a bike Jude Law – but I’d taken him out for a ride so that’s doesn’t count.

    Smoked a fatty with Anthony Kiedis (chilli peppers) at the top of Mt Tam in Marin a few years (decades) back.

    Also have watched with hilarity as Cwis Eubank attempted to follow me down a very tricky trail on the South Downs:Him swearing like fâ€Ēâ€Ēk on a rigid Klein, me on a San Andreas. He did mash me on the uphills however.

    See Steve Peat in the woods every so often, but I guess you mean like ‘proper’ famous. In which case, nobody. Well, of course like everyone else in the thread I can’t leave the house without tripping over Louis Theroux, but that’s hardly worth mentioning.

    Yes well he likes to hang around with the mad, bad and dangerous to know so no real surprise that so many on here have met him. 🙂

    During all of the below, I was on my bike or standing within 6 feet of it!
    John Tomac was in Bridlington when he raced the Milk Race all those years ago. I was working as event staff on the start of the day’s racing. (My bike was about 20 feet away for this one!)
    Saw Gary Fisher at the opening day of ‘Follow The Dog’ at Cannock.
    Saw Hans Rey at Cannock in his GT branded motorhome, looking for the camp site.
    Saw David Hockney in Bridlington a few years ago.

    Saw Gary Fisher at (I think) mountain mayhem a few years ago. In time with every pedal stroke I could hear him say “Cold. Beer” “Cold. Beer” 🙂
