Where's Chicken Legs?

Huge kudos to EzyTrack, Zimbabwe’s leading GPS Monitoring Company and inventor of ‘Where's Chicken Legs?’ the world’s least riveting spectator sport and even more boring than watching paint dry. EzyTrack are putting one of their too clever tracking devices on Eric's bicycle so the world can see exactly how slowly he rides.
