‘It’s probably something like 20 years that I’ve been cycling. I bought this bike about a year and 6 months ago. In my basket in the back here I’ve got a bit of Christmas meat, a small bottle of brandy I got as a gift, and so on. Tonight we’re going to celebrate Christmas a little. I’m now 79... cycling keeps you young, it keeps your muscles loose, it keeps you fit and so on and that is why I do it, that is why I ride my bicycle. At night this bicycle sleeps in my bedroom, almost in front of the bed - this is my second wife. Ha ha! I’ve got my big wife and the bicycle is my little wife, ha ha!’
