London - Reports that 'they liked to share a saddle' were rubbished today before the emergence of previously unseen footage of the two men cycling near the Houses of Parliament.
Following close behind is another dodgy pair, subsequently identified as Adam Werritty and Dr Liam Fox, peddling away on an Evans Outsizes Grand Tourismo Tandem Cruiser.
"They're definitely not 'sociable' or tandem 'buddy bikes'," someone at the Gareth Williams inquest said this morning, "because that supports two balanced riders sitting side by side.
"These guys rode in strict forward formation, never glancing in the rear-view mirror to check up on their partner's efforts."
The revelations may shed light on MI6 cryptographer Gareth Williams' unexplained behavior daze before before his unsolved August 2010 RIP.
Williams and his alleged cycling chum both died in mysterious circumstances with Neil Heywood's own demise the subject of much media speculation 'that he might have been spooking for the CIA in China.'
A police search for Williams' missing Hiking Aviemore Road Hybrid Tandem has so far yielded nothing the Inquest heard.
meanwhile Neil Heywood's rickshaw is still with Forensics.
