    When will a cycle manufacturer start installing warning lights for malfunctioning parts? Imagine the fun of flashing handlebar lights and the tales to tell in the pub after a ride.

    My ironic, and I hope amusing, letter developing the theme is published this week in Cycling Weekly.

    To show gratitude for your inspiration I gift you all of my author royalties.

    I presume Cycling Weekly is a weekly cycling magazine - which like most magazines struggles to find anything more to write about their subject on a weekly basis?

    I used to write for a few magazines (running, fishing, countryside stuff) and did some articles and photography for Runners World or whatever it was called, we are talking 30 years ago, unless royalties have increased massively above inflation rates please keep any that come your way and treat yourself to a half pint of best bitter after your next race. And think of me 🍺

    Alas CW only prints one letter a week and the glory has to suffice.

    When I was at school I submitted a few short pieces (a handful of paragraphs) to NME (New Musical Express) which they published, gave me name credit and paid me 3 guineas for each. That is equivalent to 70 today which was quite nice for someone who should have been studying for his "A" levels. So it is NME's encouragement that is to blame for all those articles I now write for The Fellrunner

    Being paid in guineas says it all, serious money for a youngster 👍.
