Hi All (especially London-based riders).

Please see email below requesting recumbent riders for a video shoot in London.
I have pointed out that what we would really like is for recumbents to actually be allowed in more British Cycling events!!!

They are looking for a couple of recumbent riders so I assume he sort of knows what we do.
