Ian started biking in earnest at the ripish age of 42 when he happened upon, what
can best be described as, a bike with only a few pedal turns left in it. How Ian
kept it going for the next few years and even had the temerity to call it his ‘Silver
Dream Racer’ is beyond belief.
His long suffering wife has somehow managed to tolerate his obsessions over the years.
This one took over from his days as an inaccurate quick bowler and a murderous hockey
player - much to the relief of the more refined games players of Suffolk.
He has kept diaries of all his rides and has used these, to good effect, to give
talks about his travels -do contact him (if you dare) if you would like him to
give a talk to your club or organisation - and has written six books.
All his rides have ended up providing money for charities ranging from Friends of
the Earth to the Restoration Fund for his Village Hall in Walsham-le-Willows.
