|Bolt On Jogle (John O'Groats to Lands End 2011|
So what makes this blog so different? Well although by age alone I suppose I might qualify as a grumpy old man, I do try and resist any urge to moan in this blog; especially about really boring topics like the state of the UK cycle infrastructure, which I actually think is quite good in its own way and a bit like the way I feel about Boris Johnston. Also, despite enjoying modest prosperity now the kids have all gone away, I do not have wads of spare cash to spend on bikes as can be seen on the photo on the left; where I cycled the length of the country on my brother in-law's old bike that was clearly 2 sizes too small for me.
So, who is Bolt? Well I hate to disappoint, but I, Chris Bolton, am certainly not the world's fastest man. I grew up in the Midlands during the 60s and 70s and like many others of my vintage I enjoyed from an early age the freedom , fun and independence that travelling by bike brings and hopefully this is what this blog attempts to capture. I now live in Wargrave in Berkshire with my wonderful wife Alice who, incidentally, I first met during a serendipitous encounter in the work's bicycle shed!
Safe and Happy Cycling!
