Cheers to Cranky

Canadian Cycling Magazine - - LETTERS -

I love Cranky’s col­umn. This is the first page I read when I get my mag­a­zine. In an ideal world, I would read it, on my couch, kids asleep, with a nice craft ipa or a nice red wine. I re­ally like the way he tells his sto­ries. I re­mem­ber so many of them, and I read them just once, most of them. For my top three Cranky columns, third place is the one about the time he moun­tain biked with the crazy guy wear­ing a vi­sor made from a two-litre pop bot­tle. In sec­ond place is the one he talks about get­ting a fixie and im­prov­ing the way he ped­als. The No. 1 col­umn is the one in which he ate too many s’mores and drank too much red wine in Muskoka and had the gravel ride of his life.

I am al­ways afraid he won't have more sto­ries to tell be­cause of his in­juries, twins or be­cause he is just old! But more se­ri­ously, I love his work and hope he knows that there are more read­ers like me. If one day, he pub­lishes a com­pi­la­tion of all his ar­ti­cles, I would buy it even though I’ve read ev­ery one.
