Bank Teller & Scribe

Bank Teller  0434 715.861 gets his jollies from inciting unrest and then penciling a diatribe arse-about where the good guys lose and the also-rans get credited with the PBs and KOMs. 

At Muggs’ functions has been given the restaurant bill to apportion out ‘cause he reputedly used to move around big bucks as a Bank Teller.  Alas, evidencing PJ calculating everyone’s cop, suggest it would take him an hour and a half to watch 60 Minutes.

Doesn't have a circle of mentors, and occasionally resembles a chap upon whose toe an elephant has recently trodden and about as sentimental as a razor blade. 

An insouciant manner without frills or furbelows, Bank Teller ain't got a twin cam overdrive under the bonnet, and is content to trundle along at the rear of the field and shepherd the tail.  Given his military medium cadence, "It's hard to believe that he once beat a million other sperm to the egg."

 

As prickly as a cactus and as cutting as a razor blade.  And with a bit of Rottweiler coming to the fore when colleagues fail to 'take up the cudgels for change', is unlikely to -

  • see out his final years as a United Nations peacekeeper; or

  • receive appointment to the Diplomatic Corp.

Circa 2002 at Lake Macq.

    

Scribe got lucky on a ride to Windsor.  He was just about to take a team pic in Historic Thompson's Square, when he noticed a young lady who'd brighten any drab cycling photo.  Scribe enquired, "Can we borrow your body for our pic?"  Voila! One "Lucky Phil" 'cause the young lass accommodated, but slipped away before Scribe could propose to her.

Circa Oct '04 thru the Lowlands, Nth Richmond amidst wholesome, well fertilised serenity, it recharged the therapy gauge. 
"Tour de Lowlands, Nth Richmond Freemans Reach'' - 81km, albeit flattish, will be featured on a Muggs' Sunday Ride soon, 'cause it is bonza, beaut, bottler ride, offering a marvellous, remedial distraction from the stuff most of us contend with M to F.
