BBC Yorkshire (May 2014)

Coming To A Radio Station / Café / Pub / Bike Shop / Cathedral Near You! Well, if you live in Yorkshire…


Later this week I’ll be talking a short break from putting together the final chapters of Along The Med on a Bike Called Reggie (due out on 5th July, the day of Le Grand Départ of the Tour de France in Leeds – I’ll be at the Yorkshire Bicycle Show at Leeds Town Hall by the way to launch the book) to return to my ‘home’ county of Yorkshire for a few speaking events. All the details are below with links to the various venues that will be hosting me over the three days of my visit. I’ll be travelling with a stock of books so if you would like a signed copy of Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie (with its fantastic new cover) please come along (alternatively bring your battered old copy and I’ll sign that as well!). Unfortunately for anyone who is in Leeds but who hasn’t signed up for the event at the Cross Keys Pub, it is now sold out… but fear not as Ripon is only a few miles north (turn left when you get to the A1) and there’s plenty of space available in the Ripon Cathedral Library. If you are not quite convinced that the evening events are for you, listen out for me on the various BBC local radio stations listed below and I’ll do my best to convince you otherwise. I’m very much looking forward to putting faces to names that I have been interacting with over the past few years on this website and social media. If you are one of those people, please do introduce yourself. Remember, I am just another secondary school French teacher. I don’t bite…
