Peter Henshaw has been an enthusiast for anything with wheels since he was a child - everything from bicycles to 500hp tractors. He was Editor of Motorcycle Sport & Leisure for five years before going freelance, and now contributes to a whole raft of transport magazines and websites, including The Vintagent (motorcycles), A to B (cycling) and Tractor (as it says ...) as well as editing Vintage & Classic Motorcycle. But this petrolhead is becoming increasingly green - now doesnt fly, doesnt own a car, rides the most economical motorcycle on the market, and for local journeys uses a bicycle or pedelec.
