Did something today that I'm not really proud of. I went without BBB to a cycling event.
This is the first ever time I have done this & it felt so wrong.
The Vulpine CycloGames event was at the Oval, E9 which isn't to far, I could have rode easily. But I didn't know the situation with security for BBB so I left him home. In hind sight I should have took him with me & went full on BumbleB suited to. More on that later.
I had a quick look around & came across the lovely folks on the Brompton stand, They actually recognized me even without BBB. I soon learn that one if them actually worked on BBB's rear frame earlier this year.
After chatting for awhile I got talked into doing the fastest folding competition. Did it in about 10.30secs which was the fastest for about 20mins.

There was 3 of us doing it at the same time. Under the pressure of doing it in front of a crowd I ended up being last. BUT afterwards found that the 2nd placed didn't tighten the seat clamp so hadn't actually finished the fold. We decided to flip a coin between us and I called heads and won & got pushed up to 2nd place. Not a good way to gain a place but I'll take it anyway.

I did feel like Clarke Kent, leaving BBB and my BBB suit at home though. Just ordinary, just human, every un legendary.....
All in all it was a good little event, hopefully it will be on again next year when I shall be in FULL legendary mode.
