After a weekend away with Sarah, I pulled the car up outside my house, got my bags from the boot, walked to the front door, turned the key and stepped over a few letters. The new issue of Bike had arrived, which made me smile, but I was more interested in the small white envelope that was poking through underneath. It was the letter I had been waiting for. Its now official, I only own one bike. The letter contained the cheque, which will barely cover next seasons insurance quote, as the final settlement following the theft of my Ninja. I guess I can now really start looking at those alternatives, but I still have a bit of time on my side, so there is no real rush. I guess, I have to re-write my homepage now.
My name is Matt Brown and I'm a UK journalist formerly based in London, but now calling the South of England home. I've been riding bikes since 2007, but got hooked straight away. Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
