Towns of Two Halves extracts:
● “Of the match itself, two memories stand out. One was the relentless tension that arose from the perilous league positions of both clubs. The other was the temperature, which dipped as the afternoon wore on. The conviction began to grow in me that I would be warmer on the bike.”
● “Hughenden is good value, inside and out. The house is not so large that fatigue ever threatens to set in, and it somehow retains a lived-in feel. The dining chair with the legs cut back, so that the petite [Queen] Victoria could sit with the soles of her feet on the floor, was a highlight.”
● “By the time I reached a village called Ellesborough the flaws in my plan were fully exposed. The skirting tactic was not working; I was ascending and descending spurs thrown out from the escarpment like a rucked-up carpet. The milometer was already reading plenty more than the 36 miles I had reckoned on. My hamstrings began to complain.”
