Take one male, in his fifties, an enthusiastic and long-time cyclist - but also an overweight and not very fast cyclist who knows he's an ex-smoker, particularly up the steeper hills. Give him time to go out for rides during weekdays as well as weekends, a general preference for riding alone but a couple of occasional cycling friends. Give him a propensity to ponder - about his life and about your life; about the things that matter and things that probably don't. Add a desire to share it all, for no other reason than the notion that he has the luxury of time to think but many others don't, so maybe sharing that luxury by writing thoughts down might somehow be a good thing. Let him write in the hope that what he writes might generate in its readers the pleasing feeling that’s to be had when you realize someone else thinks along the same lines as you do. Give him Berkshire and South Oxfordshire to ride around in during most weeks, with the odd foray further afield. Add a general inclination to see if, along the way, he can help other people enjoy cycling as much as he does. And you have "Codgertation" - a codger cogitating. On average, it's around 100 miles of thinking every week.
