Sheldon Brown

Today's Times has both an editorial outlining their bizarre views on Europe, and an obituary for Sheldon Brown.

Sheldon's web site helped me get back into cycling. He was clearly a gifted writer, for which I am grateful. He was also clearly an enthusiast who was prepared to follow his own path, which I admire. But my gratitude and admiration is just a tiny drop in the wave of feeling expressed by the internet cycling community over the last month. It is good to see his work recognised in the traditional media.

You can view the interesting obituary here. Don't bother with the silly editorial.
