Still, I suppose on the plus side, there'll be no "who did I see on ...?", it'll be "I saw blorg..... !"

I saw a boards cyclist on a racing bike about 2 weeks ago on the South Quays in Dublin. Poor guy nearly got knocked down by a moped when it moved across him into the bus lane.

Some impressive swearing ensued.
Don't know what poster it was though

nothing to be ashamed of in B/stoe! :-) we all get out there now and again to let it rip! plus we need to promote it as Coilte will extend and provide more trail centres to grow the sport! whether you are for or against trail centres it has put Scotland and Wales on the international map as great destinations to cyle! (thier is an industry built around mtb over there!!)

@ Tiny :- more into XC mtb so the regular roadie jersey is the best option :-) however the DH jerseys are cool on freeride and DH bikes!

btw allot of roadies are trying thier hand at mtb! they have the fitness but the technical side and balance takes time to conquer!

I am in interested in getting the shorts aswell as the jersey, as they look good (especially the shorts). I am new to cycling and ahve read to be wary of buying cheap shorts, which the price looks very reasonable at the risk of offending someone are the boards.ie shorts worth buying? When is the next order and how do I get them?

Who was that yesterday?

I saw a Boards jersey in the Phoenix park in Dublin, at about 1pm, 'you' were cycling past the zoo, with no hands ( probably to show off the jersey ) heading towards town exit ... on the wrong side of the cycle lane!

Spotted a Boards jersey and shorts on Amiens St yesterday evening at 5.55. I was stopped at the Nth Circular Road junction and you whizzed by.

No hands, Pheonix park, Sunday, in the wrong cycle lane yup sounds like me alright. Only saw one other cyclist in the park that day. 40-ish year old man on a trek but with a name like caroline_ie i doubt that was you.

No hands was to straighten out my back (need to sort out my nerd posture)

If it was a blue Trek 5000 with Easton wheels, that would be Trek_climber.
