The Cyclist
by Roger Pattison

He had a red face; he had a red and black striped jumper, he had a load of onions round his neck, that bumped against his knees as he rode his bike around the North Circular; he also had black tights and white plimsolls.

He was, in short, obviously French.

“’Allo”, he said in a deep Russian growl.

Things aren’t always what they seem.
