  1. hello!

    found out yesterday that you’ll be in Edinburgh in June – albeit 3 days after my due date…so depending on when the little one comes out, I’ll be there to listen to you speaking about all sorts of bike related adventures.
    With the final month ahead, and the promise that I will not have 2 hands free at the same time after birth – I set about getting my single speed racer ready for the summer yesterday – new tyres, new handlebar tape, semi-deep clean…Can’t wait to get on it again after having swapped it all those months ago for the upright Dutch bike to cycle to work.
    Anyway – been following your blog for many years and looking forward to maybe meeting you in June!
    Take care, Barbara

  2. Hi Emily, so surprised when I bought a Guardian for the first time in years to find an ad for your book on the first page I looked at………. serendipity! am now ordering copies for us all! I am glad you decided to write a book after all, I cycle a bit these days, may cycle to see you mum and dad one day!

  3. Just reading your book Emily and loving it. I did the courier thing for Security Despatch for about 7 years in late 80s , early 90s and your detail is bringing back so many happy memories – especially as I have spent the subsequent 20 years in an office!

    So thank you very much. I remember we had ‘handles’ rather than numbers. I was ‘Long John Silver’ because I rode a Robert Quicksilver bike. Later a Bob Jackson fixed wheel.

    Thanks and roger rog.

  4. Just heard you on BBC Scotland! Fantastic. Had never heard of you up til now, now I’ll be sure to take a look at your blog regularly.


    1. Hi Jan,

      No current plans, but I’ve had a couple of requests from that area, so will see what I can do. It might not be till autumn now, as I’ve a busy summer coming up. 🙂

  5. loving the book nearly finished which is a shame, any more in the pipeline. Hoping to come to one of your talks are you in london soon ?
