Now, for something completely different - I was contacted by the esteemed Editor of Sailing World Magazine, Dave Reed, late last year, regarding a feature on sailors that ride bikes. Turns out cycling is the second biggest interest, outside of sailing, for his readership.
I do love my cycling but I tried to convince him that perhaps they ought to focus on somebody younger and faster than me, who spends more time focused on cycling (as opposed to a busy and ageing battler like myself). He said “Nope - you’re perfect!”.
The resultant article was published in the winter edition. Dave sent me a copy of the magazine. I must say, I am mightily impressed with the range of relevant articles in the magazine and have since subscribed.
