I’m off to Boston for the AGM of the British Guild of Travel Writers.

70 members of the guild are going to be treated royally by a variety of Boston tourism associations. After the AGM and various jollies, guild members can then choose one of five side-trips. I’ve plumped for three days in Vermont. Boarding. Nice.

The January edition of BicycleBusiness was finished last night and will be with printers tomorrow. By the time I get back, the mag will be out.

This site may or not be updated while I’m away. I’m writing this from Glasgow Airport so no doubt I’ll be able to access my email, and write stories, when I get a spare moment across in the States.

To email me please use the usual carlton@bikebiz.co.uk but please CC it to carlton0@aol.com just in case I have trouble retrieving my bikebiz.co.uk mail.
