I am just thinking of all the history those roads have seen in that time.

If each picture was a cobblestone, how many kilometers have you paved?

And if you please,sir, could you find one of Helen Mirren of the same vintage and that would complete the trifecta of stunningly beautiful, outstandingly talented, gracefully aging, British actors.

There are some pics out there of young Dame Helen. She seems to have had quite the life!

If you're a Mirren fan you must see The Long Good Friday - she plays gangster Bob Hoskin's moll.

This is lovely! Not quite sure what it is for, though. Chips and dip?

Take off those rose shades

You've forgotten all the "natural" shit.

Hairy armpits

Hairy legs

Dirty bare feet

Stinking of patchouli

Sure it's not 1986? I was there I think...

Oooohh??!!  If it were 86, that may be The Badger behind in polka dots, but I dont think it is.  I dont think Fignon rode the 86 (I could be wrong).  They all have enclosed brake cables - These were still catching on around 86 (along with Look clipless pedals).  LeMonds avocet says 89?  Im trying to remember his team - Very weak (useless).  They had a fluoro colour scheme.  What were they called??!! (Annoyed I cant remember - too many lock down beers!)  But I reckon it is 89.

(PS: I refuse to google search a photo as good as that)

PPS: Great work Hobot  B)

From Wikipedia France, LeMond's team was AD Renting, also called ADR-Agrigel-Bottecchia during Tour de France '89 due to additional sponsorship. This team only existed from 1987 to 1989. 1989 was the big return of Greg LeMond after 2 years off the races because of a hunting accident in April 87

Harold presents...

The most terrifying experience!

The heads cutter:

Genuine re-incarnation of Paris executioner

(and the best for the end...)

The cut-off head truly maintains all its vitality and is given to the audience for examination !!!

Need a bit of terms of reference here.  Are we talking late 60s, early 70s BCIT office dressed computer chicks vs SFU computer science chicks?  Has this distorted your view of the fairer sex? Just wondering.

We're talking 1967 - 1970 hippie chicks.

I'll take a guess - Around 84?  The Professor has gone to concealed cables.  The Badger still riding clips.  But the La Vie Clair Team name has appeared - It would soon revolutionise cycling (Helped by a young American rider)

I don't have knowledge of this, is that the name of the race?

Yup.  The most famous (& tortuous) of all the spring classics.  Starts outside Paris, finishes with a lap of the Roubaix velodrome.

Watch the movie "A Sunday in Hell".  Should be able to find it free online youtube or similar.

Went on the bambutrain, near Battambang, Cambodia many years ago. Quite scary with people and cows crossing the railway just meters infront of us. Not to mention when meeting a trainset coming the other direction on the single track.
