Tim Bird brings Yorkshire, England to Bicycle Quarterly readers. We eagerly anticipate every one of his adventures and stories. (The latest is in the Spring 2013 Bicycle Quarterly.) He immerses us in the landscape, culture and history of the countryside. I especially like the unique and storied names of towns, brooks, mountains and roads; I want to pull out a map and find each of them.
While we discussed ideas for future articles, he sent this inspirational photo. I feel like I just crested that hill and want to ride down that road. Don’t you want to be there, too?
