CARRY ON CYCLING: (Detroit, USA)

US Customs is a friendly place…I've always struggled to resist making some humorous quip or another in the face of scary authority, especially geed up and giddy on arrival in 'Motown'.  We had our checked luggage searched. On being asked what was in the giant Bicycle box, the immigration officer wasn't that amused when I answered "a huge laptop…sir?". "That's too big for a laptop sir" was his astute response. "And what's in your wife's box?". Well I'm sorry, but no-one slanders an Englishman's wife without having the common decency to ask first. One of these days I'm going to get a full body search by some guy with too much power and no sense of humour.
