Every time I open a newspaper or turn on the television nowadays I am struck that cycling is the new Rock & Roll. Toby Young and Dylan Jones both have bikes and attended The Rolling Stones Bridges to Babylon tour when it reached London. They went to the concert in designer gear, and spat out Jagger's lyrics whilst waving bottles of their own urine in time to Charlie Watts's drum beats.
The lead singer for Elbow, a Mr. Stuart Maconie owns a Brompton which he rides to work every day then folds away neatly every night while listening to a Clive Cussler audiobook. West country Mojo man David Quantick has also been spotted saddling up, and is never happier than when riding around wearing a 'confused' expression.
