Thank you all for the messages of condolence you've sent me after the death of my son.

In a strange place.

Author, Rating and Tags:

I'm in a strange place at the moment, sort of on autopilot. At lunchtime I received a call that put me there. My ex phoned to say my son was dead - he was 33.

Hi folks, after such touching commentaries concerning Seven years of Bike (perhaps we could get John Williams to do the soundtrack?)I hate to say I probably won't write one tonight.

Serial killer? Transwomen murdered in Baltimore.

This from today's Guardian sounds rather worrying.

Bike - too tired tonight.

Sorry folks, ran out of steam tonight - have worked two rather long days and can't stay awake.

How time flies!

It's 28 years ago today that I officially started my transition and went into work in a grey two piece. In some ways it feels much less than that and in others, it seems centuries ago.

I've just got home from the Arctic Circle, where Yorkshire is or thereabouts - actually, it's been mostly warm and sunny.

Who keeps messing with my stuff?

The Gabysode I wrote for the meeting of the Gabyverse elite is a short story, a one off, complete in itself etc. If I find out who keeps switching it to a series. I shall park my bike up their &%$£!

An article on today's Guardian Website

An article about a rarely mentioned group, transmen.

Bike and beyond

Author, Rating and Tags:

We're coming up to another centenary with Bike, and I'd like to check that I keep pedalling or should that be peddling?

I've done another of Charlotte's Tale so haven't had a chance to do Bike tonight. Hopefully tomorrow should have normal service returned.

I've just been up to the training for the Tour de France volunteers in London and while I was waiting for it to start, we were sitting out in the sun drinking tea or coffee and on the next table to me

A new one from the Guardian

I think a well written article.

Hope the link works.

Sorry,

I've run out of time, too tired to write tonight. Hopefully will have more time tomorrow.

Two stories in today's Daily Wail

The first comes with pix of some very attractive trans women.

Trouble at net!

I worked a 12 hour day went to check my emails and found one from the TdF organisers about my training in a couple of weeks time.

No Bike tonight

Sorry folks, been up in Lunnun all day as part of my training for the Tour de France (I'm not riding it, just helping to make it happen).

Problems with computer - I hate the stupid things and at the moment they are wasting far too much of my time.

Transgender Latinas from Queens, NY.

This turned up on the Guardian website and I found it very sad. There are some links to reports and also some photos of the 'girls' working as prostitutes.

Writing an intersex character

Alyssa Brugman has written a book about an intersex character who goes from boy to girl. See the article at the Guardian.

No Bike tonight

Sorry, keep falling asleep, had my needy friend on the phone for an hour, so I'm off to bed.

Hopefully better luck tomorrow.

Article about a book on transgender and gender queer poetry.

One for the more esoteric verse on gender subjects but which doubtless some will enjoy.

Bike blog

Back in January 2011, I couldn't believe I'd written episode 1234 of Bike. I wondered if I'd get to 2345. Now I know the answer. Why? is probably best not asked.

Bike

Sorry folks, worked twelve hours and fell asleep in the chair. Can't think why I'm so tired.

India recognises third gender

Some bits from the Guardian about a transgender person seeking election in the Indian elections, and references to the change in the law in India recognising transgender and hijra(eunuchs) people.

Bike

Apologies - I have a visitor and was too busy talking to think about writing. They'll be here all weekend but I'll try and do one tomorrow.

Not writing tonight.

Sorry folks, Bonz is out and Whizz is refusing to dictate the story to me, so I'm not going to do a bike tonight.

Bike

Sorry folks, it's got too late for me to write tonight - fell asleep in the chair after doing a long bike ride today (long for me that is) with several climbs.

A sympathetic story from the Daily Mirror

Author, Rating and Tags:

I had to go to my garage to get my exhaust sorted (on the car - duh!)and while waiting saw this article which was largely sympathetic about a six year old tg 'girl'.

I hope the link works.

150,000 thank yous

I nearly gave up on posting tonight having spent an hour or so trying to get on site.
