Emotional Tributes to Mike and his Bollard
Following on from last week’s post about the traumatic bollard related incident involving one of members, tributes have been pouring in from around the cycling world.
The Wirral section of the VCUK cycling club made a stop at “Mike’s Bollard” as it’s now formally known to show their support for such a good cause.
Other members of the cycling community simply left anonymous tributes on social media, some with flowers
The NWV had it’s usual Sunday club run last week, and even though Mike is well on the road to recovery, he was not well enough to participate. So the club paid it’s own tribute. It was an emotional moment, some of the lads moved to tears when they thought of how close Mike was to losing a boll**k on the bollard.
The biggest suprise came from the Grand Depart in this years Tour De France. At the start of the opening stage the great Eddy Merckx appeared out of the roof of the lead car to start the race and produced a replica of Mike’s Bollard to stick on the roof in a show of solidarity.
Hopefully Mike will be out again next week and be back to steering AROUND bollards and other stationary objects.
