    no fear of the family getting bored after the christmas dinner with these cycling related facts....

    - pleasure steamers used to disembark from the summit of the col de porte for cruises around the pyrenees

    - the photocopier was named after it's inventor fausto coppi who used the device to gain multiple prescriptions of amphetamine to aid his recovery from saddle sores

    - pinarello bicycles are made in pinner, west london

    .... please add any further facts to this thread, we will need enough material to get the family asleep to allow a sneaky 50 on wednesday afternoon.
