Fat Lad at the back
One of my hobbies, or maybe fitness activities that I really enjoy is cycling. Donning my lycra at a weekend to swoop down and struggle up the hills of Kent and Sussex, is one of my favourites thing to do, but none of my adventures come close to those of Tim Moore, travel writer, humorist and cyclist extraordinaire. Having cycled the Tour de France in French revolutions and the route of the 1914 Giro in Geronimo his next adventure was to cycle along the route of the Iron Curtain on EuroVelo 13. For his own amusement and discomfort he was to complete the 9000 km on a tiny wheeled, two geared East German shopping bike. His adventure unfolds in “The cyclist who went into the cold” Published by Yellow Jersey Press the book is illustrated with maps by the fat lad at the back - aka Me!
