Where can I buy ‘Some people are gay. Get over it!’ t-shirts?

Since posting some photos of myself wearing a ‘Some people are gay. Get over it!’ t-shirt. I have had a number of people contact me and ask where I got it from. I got it from www.stonewall.org.uk/what_you_can_do/buy_your_stonewall_merchandise/4873.asp.

They also sell Some people are gay. Get over it! mugs. Which I also have some of. You can buy them from www.stonewall.org.uk/what_you_can_do/buy_your_stonewall_merchandise/4874.asp.

Some people are gay. Get over it!

Some people are gay. Get over it! t-shirt

I have had this “Some people are gay. Get over it!” t-shirt for years and years. But for some unknowing reason, I have never gotten around to taken photos of myself wearing it. Up till now that is…

Some people are gay. Get over it! Some people are gay. Get over it!

Now done 28,500 miles of cycling (Since April 2003)

I am well pleased with myself. I have now done 28,510.9 miles of cycling since April 2003. All going well, I should have that to around 30,000 miles by July 2013 time!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Vlog: Fens to Lincolnshire “Highlands”

This vlog was filmed while cycling back from The Wash. It shows just how flat the Lincolnshire Fens really are. I joke about cycling to the “Highlands” of Lincolnshire. After not a single hills for miles and miles, they may as well be!
