Oh dear. I upset Mrs Traylor of Llandudno in a recent entry by mentioning that I ride a bike. She goes to the effort of writing to the Artists & Illustrators office to express her disappointment. "So Hobbs rides a bike," she writes in the November issue. "This confirms my worst suspicions." And that is it. Thank you, Mrs Traylor.
And thank you, too, to Beatrice Hoyland (any relation to John?) of London, who starts her letter "Cyclists are rude and arrogant" before going on at length about what a grim bunch cyclists are. Oh yes, and Pru Harris of Surrey, also keen to get into the act, signs off her letter with "I hate cyclists too!"
Calm down. I'm only going to work.
