I blanked out the last few minutes. I stopped hearing when the muffled screams turned to a choking sound just before the silence; but they were still there, behind the tree. Her pitiful pleas hushed in the cold and dark; I just froze.
Who am I? Originally from Portsmouth, I am now joint founder of an online cycle retailer (www.pedal-pedal.co.uk) and, apart from writing, I spend an inordinate amount of time on a bicycle...I have a few. The stories on Simon's Cycle Shorts are, without exception, taken from the perspective of the bicycle; they do have a voice you know, and some of them have been around for a long time and have seen some exceptional happenings. So, with more than a passing interest in history and a lifelong addiction to two-wheeled transportation, my Cycle Shorts were written.
