As soon as the topic of cycling is raised in conversation, many people respond with a bike story. They tell of the trials of winter and the joys of summer, of bling bikes and pub beaters, of favourite routes and breathtaking views, of close calls and empty roads, of fierce hills and sweet descents, of shortcuts and longcuts, of freecycled parts and tool swaps, of long loved bikes lost and found, of special rides and new friends, of chance encounters and lucky escapes, of patching flats and mending trousers, of learning tricks and taking tumbles.
It can be short or long, wistful or stressful, passionate or poetic. It is up to you how you tell it. And who says you only have to write one.
(Hopefully, there will be a map and image function soon. In the meantime if you have such things, please send them here.
Happy safe cycling,
