I had hoped to bring you a Saturday photo of today’s Classico Boretti Bike Ride out of Amsterdam. I rode the 110km course, stopping along the way to take shots of the line of lycra loonies passing windmills and beaches, dunes and canals.
Then I arrived back in time to photograph others slower than myself (yes there were a few, though not many) crossing the finish line.
I got some great shots, but you’ll have to take my word for that, because…
I mounted my bike and rode home. ‘Now I should take a photo of myself,’ I thought. And I would have, only my camera was gone from the saddle bag.
Lost, stolen or strayed? I don’t know, but it’s gone.
If you found it, maybe outside the Velodrome where the Boretti finished, drop me a note in the comments box below and I’ll love you forever.
If you stole it, congratulations on crawling so nimbly through a tiny window of opportunity. Now could I have it back please?
