I Meant Citroen Berlingo Multispace
Drove (just) to Horwich, looked at said berlingo, test drove said berlingo, realised said berlingo was far superior in every way (and a damn sight quicker when you put your foot down too), bartered over said berlingo and then bought said berlingo

said berlingo

Got £500 for the corsa in part ex, though they wouldn’t accept the bike rack…well, they wouldn’t give me any money for it anyway, even though I doubt I will ever need it again. Result!

My current (and only) problem with it is the colour of the interior, it’s like this:

gallic flair or just vomit


In “Other News” Rich and Louise tie the knot (not literally apparently) on saturday. I am looking forward to seeing Rich look smart, as is Louise I imagine…it’ll be a new experience for us all!


  1. My mate borrowed his mum’s ‘billy’ berlingo once to drive down to the alps and it was ace. One of those cars that you sort of snigger at to begin with but then you get in it and you think it’s ace. Easy enough room for four adults to sit comfortably for 10 hours and room for kit and cigarette lighter sockets everwhere so no ones phone/ipod etc ever runs out.

    Top purchase!

  4. if it’s anything like my house, it’ll be covered in a thin layer of spare bike parts, bike magazines and energy bar wrappers within seconds 🙂

    i’m hoping the overly bright interior will help keep me awake after long races 😉
