The Cycle Tour – Monty Python



Mr. Pither, the cyclist, bobs up and down a few more times, then disappears from sight. There is a crash and clang of a bicycle in collision, mixed with the scream of a frightened hen, and stifled shout of alarm.

“August 18th. Fell off near Bovey Tracey. ” ……. “The pump caught in my trouser leg, and my sandwiches were badly crushed”

Afer a further accident (“rubber instep caught on the rear mudguard stanchion “), Mr Pither meets Gulliver. Whereupon the following cycling dialog takes place …

Gulliver
Really? And what happened to the corned beef rolls?

Pither
The corned beef rolls squashed out of all…here, how did you know about the corned beef rolls?

Gulliver
I noticed them – or what remained of them – in the road. I noticed also that the lemon curd tart had sustained some superficial damage.

Pither
That’s right. The curd had become…

Gulliver
Detached from the pastry base.

Pither
Absolutely right, yes.

Gulliver
Otherwise the contents of the sandwich box were relatively unharmed, although I detected small particles of bitumen in the chocolate kup kakes.

Pither
But they were wrapped in foil!

Gulliver
Not the hard chocolate top, I’m afraid.

Pither
Oh, that’s the bit I like.

Gulliver
The sausage roll, the crisps and ginger bisquit were unscathed.

Pither
Here, how do you know so much about cycling?
