The cheeky buggers!
Whilst collecting sponsorships for my London to Paris bike ride – www.doitforcharity.com/tonylockwood a couple of ‘friends’ mockingly (well I hope that they were mocking) asked whether I was having a mid life crisis.
What do you mean? I asked
The response – “well isn’t that what all MAMILs are doing?”
What’s a MAMIL? I asked
Middle Aged Men In Lycra – they shouted back at me. Ohhhh….
I could sit here and try to defend myself and all MAMILs but I don’t think I need to. After all, what is middle age today? I’m 47 and yes when I was 18, I would have thought 47 men were old, never mind middle aged. However, I don’t feel middle aged at all – in fact I see myself much more active than I’ve ever been, and I think that goes for most of my friends.
So Mid Life Crisis – no!
MAMIL – no! – if you have ever tried to ride a road bike for any distance without the padding around the butt, you’ll know what I mean!
Just a guy trying to keep fit, raising funds for a very important cause and enjoying it – what’s wrong with that.
Just wait until I drive up in my Ferrari and then you can say I’m having a mid life crisis!!
