Cycling Plus - - WELCOME -

While the pic­ture above pro­vides am­ple ev­i­dence as to why I’ve never been asked by the mag­a­zine’s art team to ap­pear on the cover it does, at least, prove that I achieved an­other cy­cling first in 2016 to ac­com­pany my re­cent at­tempt at cy­clo-cross. In late Novem­ber my­self, se­nior art ed­i­tor Steve and ad man Adrian raced a duathlon. For me it was, like CX, tick­ing off a dis­ci­pline that I’d long promised to do. And, like my time rac­ing in the mud, I came away with that warm glow of sat­is­fac­tion you get from do­ing some­thing that – per­haps to your sur­prise – you thor­oughly enjoy. I’ll be look­ing for other bike-based firsts in 2017 – sug­ges­tions wel­come – and I hope that you will be too. It’s a great way of

re­mind­ing your­self of the fun to be had on two wheels!
