Simon Bever – Writer

The idea behind Simon’s Shorts was to provide somewhere safe to put my articles and short stories for people who were interested to read them. So here they are – they will be added to frequently as there are plenty more of them.

Who am I?  Originally from Portsmouth, I was joint-owner of an online cycle retailer  and, apart from writing and listening to Classical music, I spend an inordinate amount of time on a bicycle…I have a few.

Having also studied music at London University so there are a few stories and articles/reviews of music-related subjects.

For over a century the humble bicycle has populated the world at a rate more rapidly than almost any other technological advance. From the poorest to richest nations, the bicycle is the product of mans ingenuity that will always be seen. The humble chain driven bicycle that has barely evolved since those remarkable days towards the end of the late nineteenth century when it appeared, has seen all the other great inventions come and many of them go…but it is still here. It seemed right to give them a voice.

I am currently writing a new novel which was inspired by my collection of old postcards which began when I was very young.

I hope you like them.



Simon’s Cycle Shorts are now available to buy in both paperback (£8.39) and Kindle (£2.99) versions from Amazon. HERE
