RECOMMENDED – I love his writing style

“When I was a kid I used to love cycling.

I had a 5 gear Sun Solo road bike and a Mongoose BMX for less serious and more dangerous rides. They were used regularly until someone broke into my parent’s garage and stole them when I was about 15.

Now, at 15 I was more interested in other things…girls and guitars. So, my insurance payout was spent on a shiny new electric guitar and amplifier, which would be a much better way to get girls than a new bike.

To be honest, I think I was right!

Cut to 20 years later. I have a beautiful wife (the guitar helped with that, as did the leather trousers and wolf slippers combo – don’t ask!), 4 dogs, 3 cats, significantly less hair and the beginnings of a rather fine belly.”
