On Chris Hutt – tributes to Bristol cycle champ

I’ve been away from the blog for a while – real life hassles, a bit of a cold, all sorts, really – but now I’m back, and playing catch-up.

As well as wading through all the screengrab nonsense that most of you aren’t in the slightest bit interested in, I’m going to try and get back up to speed with some of the things that have been happening lately in Bristol and on the blogosphere.

First up: Chris Hutt.

Chris Hutt ran the Green Bristol Blog and was a champion of cycling and all things environmental in Bristol. On Saturday he was found dead at his home. He has been paid fulsome tribute both on the interwebs and in the local media:

I never met him, but he was a regular commenter here (as he was everywhere else in the local blogosphere!) and seemed like a genuine sort of fellow, passionate in what he believed and keen to get stuck in. I’m sure the bunfights he started shall continue to rage, even in his absence.

Toodle-pip and watch those junctions!
