First cycle in 2021 wearing the BMC Racing Team kit

First cycle during 2021, wearing the BMC Racing Team kit! Just wish, they still made cycling kits like this, all current ones are mainly black and so boring! I want ones that stand out!

So happy, got a new JOB!

That’s me back to being happy again! While out cycling, I got the phone call to say that I passed the driver driving assessment, yesterday and they would like to offer me the job!

It’s another Customer Delivery Driver job, for a well knowing UK supermarket! So can’t want to start!!!

Need to wear this, more often!

I was speaking to one of very, very, cute friends from the USA the other day. He was like Gordon, why don’t you often wear my favourite cycling gear? So of course, I wanted to keep him happy!! đŸ˜‰
