The perfect cycling food? Jelly Babies and hard boiled eggs.
Loves - speed; climbing big, tough hills; overtaking cyclists less than half my age; a proper bicycle (Ridgeback Panorama World Tourer); listening to carbon cyclists making comments about the weight of my bicycle irrespective of Newton's Laws of Motion; bullet-proof tyres; proper, leather saddles (Brooks & Spa).
Hates - getting dropped (but it doesn't stop me); days when I can't cycle; finding it hard to keep losing weight.
