The Mid-Night Ramblings of Myles McCorry

Every so often the cycling community produces it's fair quota of characters, wits and raconteurs. I don't know where Myles McCorry, proprietor of the The Cyclery in Lurgan fits in, but he is a man with a mind of his own and not afraid to try something new. Produced below is a diary of his latest exploit. Forget about Paul Revere......this is the Midnight Ride of Apollo CC

PS Does anyone know the site which quotes the following "the cyclery is a brilliant shop along with a good looking owner!!!what is ur name curly boy??" Search the web for the Cyclery Lurgan and this is what comes up. I wonder did Myles write it himself?
