Very perceptive letter from a certain Dave Rowe in this week's CW! Wit, pith, the magnicent Wiggle Road Bike and Jeremy Corbyn. Genius!

Bless my soul, we have a veritable bard amongst us, scandalising the mighty CW with his perspicuity.  And why not?  We less affluent folk, such as the hidden army of pensioners, surviving on warm gruel and cold chip fat, are just as relevant as the young, thrusting carbon-fibre lovers.  Probably.

But well done Dave and I hope your various bodily fluid levels allow you to ride the Ride.

Surely with that new fangled derailleur gears you preach about now, you should be doing the 100 this year?!?!

They should make me Tech Ed, MR! Perhaps then, I'd get the buggers to review my beloved WIGGLE and the myriad of fab but affordable toys de velo, out there. Just signed up to the Ride London 46. Who knows, it might have thawed out here by then!

Glad to see they've still got one reader left over at CW. Good on you Dave, single handedly keeping the comic in print! ;-)
