About this deal

Since then, Henry's life can be charted through the bikes and journeys he has been on – from a stifling public-school education, via many years battling addiction, to the big-sky iconic routes Henry has ridden for over twenty series as presenter of numerous TV shows. Henry Cole's passion for motorbikes began when, at the age of eight, he was first introduced to a 'man cave'.

In comparison I have achieved little and haven't had the debilitating drug dependency the Henry suffered. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. my first option of Henry was what a posh twat, but after years of watching him and his biking experiences I grew to like him, now after listening to his brilliantly told story I like him even more, he may have had a privileged early life but he lived, more than most.One of the signs that families used to leave out for slaves running for freedom was a blanket over a fence.

When Sammy Shine crashes into the forest, he ends up in a whole new world; no longer does he live in comfort in his shoe box . In 2013 Henry Cole set a world land speed record for a pre-1955 750cc motorcycle, riding a Brough Superior on the Bonneville Salt Flats. I did enjoy it and Henry comes across as someone I could have a a good chat with and the kind of bloke I used to hang out with.

Gorgeously rendered in soft, dark pencils, this wordless book is reminiscent of the naturalistic pencil artistry of Maurice Sendak and Brian Selznick, but unique in its accurate re-creation of a Civil War-era farm in northwestern Virginia. The family is wordless too, when the soldiers arrive with offers of a reward, but leave empty handed. He started as a news cameraman for channels including ITV and TF1 and progressed to making rockumentaries, primarily with heavy rock bands, [4] then directing TV commercials, and finally directing films, such as the semi-autobiographical Mad Dogs and Englishmen with Elizabeth Hurley.

His great-uncle Redbeard’s corrugated iron shed was “stuffed to the gills with old motorbikes” which Henry helped rebuild and ride. He does contradict himself quite a lot,the second line in chapter one lines says how much he hates cars and dislikes driving them while the rest of the book tells of cars he's owned,and often loved,complete with pictures.

Outside from film and television, Henry owns Gladstone Motorcycles which manufactures bespoke British custom motorcycles. What fascinated me was working out the expressions of the girl’s family: Did they know what the girl was doing? That’s why, with the help of an interior designer, I created new colours for the original, classic Tidy Books bookcase. Henry Cole has written two books: A Biker's Life (2018) [9] and The Life-Changing Magic of Sheds (2020).
