This is Alan.
A few weeks ago I took the day off work, took the bus to Cambridge and cycled home. All in all I covered nearly eighty miles on an unusually hot, hot, hot May day. It was like pedalling in a sauna for five hours. What a day though. Beautiful.
Along the way, I met Alan. He was out for a ride to test his newly-put-together bicycle. It's a 1965 H R (Dick) Morris. He really knows his stuff and has a proper love for bicycles. Alan used to do a lot of cycling, but said that his knees are now shot. He also said that as his stomach has got wider his handlebars have got higher. Looking at this photo though, I can't see any sign of a spreading stomach. He was very complimentary about my bicycle too. What a lovely man Alan is.
