I was recently contacted by ‘Old Bike Mart’ and informed they would be ‘running an article on the Velosolex run in France.’ The gist of the e-mail was to offer Velosolex Club U.K. an advert to run alongside the article. At ‘just £59.00 + VAT,’ it was not something I was interested in - especially as we are a non-subscription ‘Club’ with no funds to pay for such adverts! However, I did offer to review the article if they would like to send me a copy of ‘O.B.M.’ free of charge.
The October edition of the newspaper duly arrived a couple of days ago (two weeks after I had already read a friends copy of the same ‘O.B.M!’;). I suppose I was disappointed to find the article was not about a Velosolex run in France at all but entirely about racing Solexes in some French village. Oh well, each to their own.
