This Blog started around November 2013, initially as a way to keep in touch with family, friends and former colleagues and it’s sort of gone on since then.
I worked for a long time as a Civil Servant and spent my last 15 years or so in work as a Project Manager and then Programme Manager and retired from paid employment at the end of December 2013 – not because I didn’t enjoy my job ( I thoroughly enjoyed it) but it was just time for my wife and I to do other things.
If you’re wondering why this Blog is called 55 and out, it’s quite simple really and that’s the age at which I quit paid employment. For the first eight months or so of its life this Blog was called T800, and that was simply because it’s just a number I like and the front end of the registration numbers I have had on a couple of my bikes.
The content of the Blog is mainly around, bikes and family as well as featuring various product reviews related to the bikes I ride and the gear and kit I use.
And because nobody should ever take themselves too seriously I have a separate category ‘whispering and hats’ … check it out
