- Famous people you have seen whilst out on your bike…
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!Posted 6 years agoscudMember
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!Posted 6 years agoconvertSubscriber
**** 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.

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 f••k on a rigid Klein, me on a San Andreas. He did mash me on the uphills however.Posted 6 years agoDeveron53Member

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!)
