Here's my report, based on several seconds of watching the racers pedal away from the starting line.

What time will 'Barry' toast the Queen tonight? I wouldn't miss it. Wild horses couldn't drag me away.

Dave the article is great but I would have understood it better if you had also posted several pictures of the male cyclists with the tight pants. For research purposes only. A picture is worth a thousand words after all.

Brilliant reporting, Dave. Please let the good people of Dorking know that we too, have a really really BIG CHICKEN. It was a "must see" when the blog gals got together in Hotlanta.

Ok, Dorking, Wawa, Ontario sees your chicken and raises you a goose.

Jack Bauer does Not wear spiderman pants - Nobody sees HIS cockeral

WOW! Huge list of going to hell. Gonna need another pencil.

OOPS! Wrong thread! All is fine - not going to hell, yet!!!!

MikeyVA, if you knew what I was thinking when Dave mentioned the tight pants on the cyclists you might think differently.

Shaven guys in form-fitting suits going through Dorking - I'd pay big money not to see that.

Good to hear the " Six Hour Grandstand Wait " is still an Olympic event.

Do they have female Olympic bike races? Many bloggers of the male (not mail) gender would support more coverage of that sport!

Just for Pirateboy:

New olympic event NUDE female bike races.

Recently, a huge gold medal was placed around its neck by a group of guerilla knitters. I swear I am not making this up. According to the local newspaper, which is named the Dorking and Leatherhead Advertiser, the medal was created and hung on the cockerel by "the Knit 'n' Knatter group, which meets regularly at the Fluff-a-Torium shop in West Street."

I believe Demon Knitter nursecindy is a member of this group. Or not. OK, I just made that up to see if she was paying attention or still looking for cyclists in tight shorts.

And for those who missed it: The Dorking Cock.

If you look on youtube under Dorking Cock Fights Back there is a different version.

Not only am I paying attention, Jeff, I'm knitting some shorts for needy cyclists.

I want to see a picture of the cockerel - both with and without the gold medal.

Nevermind. Thanks, Jeff.

That statue has shrinkage. It gets cold in Dorking, or during, or after, or WHAT DO I KNOW? It's 104 outside right now!

Since the official photographer is a bit underage, imagination might be necessary.

NMUA, those pictures should probably be taken by Mrs. Blog.

. Especially their etc., if you know what I mean.
This is why I wear loose shorts over my etc. when I'm riding. I know what I look like in spandex. No one else needs to.

Pssst...Dave? They're STILL riding. I think it's the women this time. At least they look like women. With MASSIVE thighs. Let's just hope there isn't Jacqueline Bauer in the bunch. Oh yeah and it's raining. In England. Shocking.
