Not really spotted, but being passed by a car with 'KANUCK' vanity plates did make me think of one...

Well, I was spotted - shouted out at me. That was the first.

About 1-2km later, another separate sighting- but no shouting - we both just did the double take and then waved.

Ran my PW (personal worst) at Puffing Billy's Great Train Race today after a year of random running and about four-five runs in the two month lead up :lol:

Saw my first forumer as I got off PT arriving, or perhaps I should say she spotted me first.

Saw second on his way up the hill towards bag drop/toilets.

Saw third at PB heading back to Belgrave and sat together with his running mates.

Also saw two people from other running group.

By chance found a past work colleague.

For over 2000 runners plus spectators and those involved, it's still a small world after all...

I've still got my "Forum Riders" jersey from 2010. It has held up remarkably well. I often wear it if I'm riding in the inner city area but in 10 years I was only spotted 3 times. For social restriction reasons I haven't been anywhere near the inner city this year. Who knows when the next time might be??

Yes. I still have mine too, though I haven't worn it in the last 4 years. Something to do with accidents, incidents and surgery. My experience is that the better quality ones last very well if treated properly when washing. My standard rule for cycling kit is 30º wash temperature. And I often add an extra rinse especially for knicks to make sure I get rid of all of the soap. I shall start wearing mine again once spring comes. I feel the cold more these days.
Stay fixed. Keeping a cool head.

I wore mine last week, but forgot to get a photo.
