Singletrack Issue 129 | Game Plan

by 0

Do you have the wrong plans? Or is planning itself the thing that’s wrong?

Words | Hannah

My life is currently full of the wrong sort of plans. In any given day in any week in the year ahead, I could give you a pretty good idea of what I will be doing – probably with significantly greater accuracy than a courier delivery slot. I know when I will have my children, when they’ll be staying at their dad’s, when they’ve got a concert to perform at, when we’ll be extra busy sending an issue of Singletrack to the printer, when the major trade shows of the year will be filling the working day and website with product launches, and when my car will probably fail its MOT. 

Sorry but the rest of this column is for Premier members only.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
