We’d always lived along the river bank. George liked it there because it was a peaceful and calm place. We’d been wandering up and down the banks of the River Lea for around ten years together and it felt like it was our home.
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.
