I just knocked off my 200th tweet and was browsing the tweets of the people I follow, including @cyclingtotheashes (aka Oli Broom)who is currently in India (he is the guy who is, as you may have guessed,cycling to the Ashes cricket in Australia which starts later in the year, with a cricket bat!). It’s interesting to see who other people follow and adventure cyclists tend to follow adventure cyclists so it’s a good way of discovering who is doing exciting things in the saddle around the World (@thedanwhalley for example who I have just started following). However, away from cycling, I did notice that @cyclingtotheashes is following the one and only Sir (unofficial) Geoff Boycott who is, of course @geoffboycott . The arrogance of Yorkshire’s greatest living ambassador is breathtaking; 243 followers, but, as a man who knows his mind and knows that all other opinions pale into insignificance compared to the great man himself, 0 (zero) following. I love it!
What do you think?
