- "Help me, George! Now how will I get back?"
"By road. I'll fetch a great big lorry!"
- ―Diesel and George
Road Ride is a rhyming magazine story.
Diesel tells George that roads are slow and boasts that he will not get stuck in any traffic jam. Unfortunately, Diesel is going much too fast and jumps right off the track. Diesel asks George for his help and wonders how he will get back home. George tells Diesel that he will have to go by road and leaves to fetch a big lorry. Diesel admits that roads are not so bad and he apologises to George.
