I am off on my holidays - well, a 3-and-a-bit-day bike tour of North Yorkshire. Part of me thinks this is not a terribly good idea, given the circumstances, which are that I have a bastard cold, a dodgy knee, and holes in my feet owing to an alcohol-induced decision to carry out late-night surgery on some very annoying blisters. But if I didn't go out on the bike, I would only sit at home languishing. So we are off to the North, home of good beer, and hopefully, a chip supper.
