and I'm the cheapskate on under 200 quid, but as soon as I pressed Submit I realized I'd spend four hundred quid on gym membership, so I really should be up a couple of categories...

Luckily, i only bought a new helmet! a nice giro pneumo, lovely, got it at the show in stratford and got a free storage pod with it, also those nice poeple at TFN put 5 High 5 energy gels in the bag aswell which i only found when i took the helmet out and it still felt abit heavy!

Over the last couple of years i dread to think what i have spent, come to think of it i don't want to know what i have spent.

Gym membership? Drats! Plus all the other stuff would easily take me into the 2500+ category.

No wonder, I'm skint-city! Crying or Very sad
