The page to which you will connect when you click the link will take you to the longest day entry you will have ever seen, I am sure. Charlie cannot start a new Year book without a long dissertation on his thoughts for the coming year and a comparison of the year just gone. But he does manage to cover 18 miles as a compensation for his literary endeavour.
You will also see a Poem called the Song of the Open Road, which somehow I don’t think it was written by Charlie but I cannot be sure. I have enquired of a cycling Poet, (a friend of mine whose expertise I value), and there is a poem in existence with that name, but with much different words, so I don’t know what to think. I just don’t feel it is in Charlie’s style. Any comments welcome.
