I like the Isle of Man

I'm writing something for the mighty Cycle World today, but I have a post-Verona man-flu hangover and I keep getting distracted. It doesn't help when the Isle of Man press office sends out a photo like this. It's young Englishman James Hillier, at Ballaugh. Looking at the shadows, I'd say it was evening practice.

Photo: Stephen Davison. G
[If anyone from Cycle World is reading this, don't worry, I'll get it finished]
That's three posts on the trot where I've used the word Like. I'm a liker, not a fighter. I also have a head full of mashed potato. Apologies. If you want great writing, buy the mag.

Utterly amazing how the shot gives you no idea of the actual speed he's travelling at, terrific pic. Good luck with the ghastly greens.

Moved to the island 18 months ago and now I'm wondering why I waited so long!

And it is a great place for trail riding, everything from the proverbial gentle green lane to experts only rock steps.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure the photo is Stephen Davison's work.
