""Hey, Geraint, here's an easy way to earn a bit of dosh. You just sit and ramble about life as a professional cyclist. I record it and write it into some sort of structure."

Bertolt Brecht
“The worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn’t hear, doesn’t speak, nor participates in the political events.

Bertolt Brecht
