I'm not going to disagree that there's way too much of that shit around, but after a bit of a look at the ride organisers and aims, it's not aimed at that specifically but it's certainly hard to separate some military dickheads with a reasonably good cause in mind from the cosplaying twats. Much as it's hard to separate is military haters like us from the occasionally necessary evil I'm glad other people take part in so I don't have to. I'm not sure the wall of remembrance itself is glorifying war, I'm not sure the ride aimed at raising money to maintain it is, some of the dickheads contributing money to it may well be doing so but that doesn't necessarily rule out the whole thing as bad.
Ah fuck 'em, they're probably mostly awful, just not sure the ride is, like when you see a similar crowd delivering Christmas presents to poor kids in convoy dressed as Santa instead of their great uncle who died in northern Africa or wherever, the outcome is probably positive.
Perfect timing for the thread - another truly epic biker fail. A teenager in Mansfield lies down under his scooter to fake an accident, but the whole thing is caught on camera. I've read every source I can find, but the only motive mentioned is to waste the time of the emergency services. Must be more to it than that...probably dumped by a girl and wants her sympathy.
Soft cunt, bring back national service!
Man "marries" bird:

I don’t know where to put this. 1500+ views today
God, that's a few people put off cycling for life, if they survive.
Was 1,300 😂
Good discount that. Top aero positioning on the hoods as well, and only a smidge over UCI minimum weight limits. This bike is ready for racing with 7 speeds ranging from fast to super fast.
Max 90kg. I'm out.
Doesn't @amey ride one like that?
Just noticed the stem, gawd
This triggered a little thing in me. Silly little prick that I was when I was a kid - I might have actually ended up doing something this daft to draw attention to myself. I had a couple of cringe inducing moments which were mild versions of this (fake choking was one)…. What motivates this stuff? Is it (as suggested) a need for the attention of an unrequited love? Or just a sense of not existing… needing to be seen?
I’ll be honest, I feel a bit sorry for the daft bastard. Seeing all those blues turn up and knowing he got past the point of no return. It’s tragi-comic.
Trigger alert. Marti Pellow and a horrific website, but still. WTAF? £69K???!!!
Those Reach websites are dreadful.
Oh 'eck... what have I said/done/not done now?
No I mean those websites are an affront!
Hahahaha. Yes. Very much so.
old news + consenting adults and all but still... ewww
Gotta get a stronger claim to that inheritance
That look better than a LaVita.
Yeah fair comment!
