It's done! My sincere thanks to everyone who contributed, especially those who gave so freely of their time, tweeting, emailing, pleading and cajoling until the world caved in and we reached our target. More news will follow. As will a book. Exciting!

Dear John, Fucking great news about the book and I can now stride the city streets with a new (I helped get John Dowie's book published) confidence. This may well be the best £20 I've ever spent.
Your blogs (is that the word?) were fucking funny. I particularly liked the Lou Reed anecdote.
Your old chum in bicycledom, Brian M
