Yello - The Race.

I was out on my bike this morning, and at some point I looked ahead and could see two people on their wheelchairs in the far distance. I think everyone knows that I have a fondness for electric wheelchairs, so I got my phone ready to click a moment.

As I approached them, something seemed a little strange, but I couldn't quite work out what it was, until I got right up behind them. They were yapping away, swerving all over the shop, and they were seriously moving. Fast. It was only when the guy on the right deftly manoeuvred around an oncoming man walking his dog that I realised this couple were actually racing each other!

I followed them and clicked this. They stayed in a deadlock all the way to the shops before I got a chance to pass them by.

Bloody speed freaks.
