It’s been over two months now since I cycled London to Paris as part of the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer’s “Arch to Arc.”
So is it any surprise that it’s also over two months since I went out on a proper bike ride? Sigh. I’m missing it, although I can’t help notice that it’s only eight o’clock as I type this and it’s pitch black outside already, so quite when I’d get to go out on decent rides I don’t know. I was planning to join some of my fellow arch to arc riders for a hundred mile ride later this month, but managed to mix the dates up and double-book myself. So I now have no idea when I’ll really start riding again.
I do still have plans to treat myself to a new bike at some point, but I guess I ought to have a cycling target to aim at before I can justify that.
Anyway, reason for this post appearing now? I’ve just had a short article published in the Land Registry staff magazine. I may not be staff any more, but I was when I wrote the article! (I did ask the editor to decribe me as formerly from Stevenage Office, but I guess he chose not to. Here’s a screenshot from the intranet version. (I’ve seen the paper version too, which is the same except with one additional photo.)
There’s also a new website on its way. I’ll let you know when it’s gone fully live.
