Well did my cable tied helmet work? Having been attacked the previous week I'm not afraid to admit that I was a wee bit hesitant!
So ignoring the fact that I look like a bit of a numpty, will dressing like an echidna really work?
The time is 9am Sunday Morning, I don my dodgy disguise and set off hoping that the neighbours don't see me! "Lycra is bad enough but now Jonny looks a complete.."
Luckily I escape onto the M7 cycle path without anyone batting an eye. Now call me paranoid but I do seem to be getting an awful lot of odd looks from fellow cyclists. I don't care in 20kms I'll face my fears! 20kms comes and it's getting hotter..
I spot him sitting high on a cable and he completely ignores me!! Now this is probably not at all scientific as it is nearing 27 degrees and my guess is that even the evil M7 magpie isn't daft enough to be out in the sun let alone wasting energy chasing a lycra clad mamil!
