I must say that I’ve never read a story told by a bicycle before. 😉 However, it was a refreshing way to tell that not all of the casualties of Chernobyl were from radiation poisoning. As an avid bike rider in my youth and having to take a pee more times than I can remember, usually behind and not on, a tree, I can certainly relate to the story. At first I thought the story was totally fiction. But gradually, I realized that it was about Chernobyl and very accurately so. Kudos.
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.
