At work today I was being distracted by just one thought. All I wanted to do was to get on my bike and ride. It didn't matter if it was just riding through the city or heading out into the country, I just wanted to ride. The day just seemed to go on forever, but as soon as I put on my helmet, I felt comfortable. I've got a busy week ahead of me, with a trackday at Brands on Thursday. As I won't have time tomorrow or Wednesday, I had to get the bike ready today. Just the standard stuff really, clean, check the tyres and lube the chain.
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.
