John Rebus does LeJog

Postby Enigmadick » 17 Oct 2020, 9:24am

Well a bit of it, and in his old Saab rather than on a bike.

But dip into his latest outing "A Song for the Dark Times" where a lot of the action is set in the mythic village of Naver, presumably based on Bettyhill.

And if you liked that then how about Damian Boyd's "Down among the Dead", a DI Nick Dixon police procedural that is set on Sedgemoor, which is also on many folk's Lejog route.

Are these podcasts? Can you post a link for the Sedgemoor one please as I can listen to it whilst riding around the Somerset levels. :wink:
At the last count:- Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, Dawes Kingpin, Raleigh 20, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa. :D

Nay - just old fashioned crime novels, although they're available on that new fangled Kindle thing and possibly as audio books.

Ian Rankin was on BBC2 a few nights back in a museum in Edinburgh, he showed us a wardrobe that Robert Louis Stevenson once owned!
