Winged Words

 

Just checking the Winged Words Inbox, we are very short of material for the Apr/May issue. Whilst lockdown is rather stifling our normal modus operandi, we’re sure there are tales to tell from past rides/tours etc which are there for the telling. Wouldn’t it be great to see them in print!

Of course, you may have a lockdown story to recount. Or a cyclists’ friendly recipe to share. Or a review of a bike or cycling component. Or even a work of cycling fiction!

As you may know, we have an “Off the Bike” feature which has produced an interesting account of activities people somehow manage to squeeze into their spare time not taken up with riding their bikes. What’s yours?

Email your article to wkdawingedwords@yahoo.co.uk. Copy deadline date is 5th Mar 2021

Thanks very much.
