Hello, let me introduce myself, Christopher Rainbow, if you already know me then you can skip the notes which follow.
I confess I can be described as retired and drawing a state pension, but I hope that I am not too aged in outlook.
I am single, I suppose my main interests are my house and garden, both of which are quite large.
I like a pint of beer, and I enjoy time in the local pub.
I enjoy music and and have a collection of musical instruments, some of which I play badly. When I say badly that is exactly what I mean, we are not talking false modesty here.
Living in the Scottish Borders, there are ample opportunities for hill walking and mountain biking. The Cheviot Hills are close by as is the vast Kielder Forest which is ideal for mountain biking. The Lake District and the higher Scotitish mountains are accessible.
On the subject of bicyles, there are links to other pages on this site, but in case you cannot be bothered to follow the links I'll tell you about my bicycles now. Apart from mountain bikes, I have an elderly but reliable touring bike, and a fleet of modern heavy duty tandems and mountain bikes available for hire.
My two wheel fleet is topped off with a motor bike. I cannot justify the motor bike on any grounds other than personal enjoyment.
I used to be employed in the farm machinery business. However it is an industry that has seen necessary restructuring, I was made redundant a couple of times and I turned my back on the industry some years ago. I worked as a part time postman, supported with odd casual jobs.
