Quick Fire Questions with Sir Chris Hoy


|
We were delighted to recently welcome Sir Chris Hoy who was in town attending the Edinburgh Awards 2018. Sir Chris enjoyed a tipple in  The Register Club before departing for his evening and shared a few thoughts on his home town and what's new in his world. 
 

What brings you to Edinburgh?

On this visit I’m here to see Doddie Weir being presented the Edinburgh Award.  I am back in Edinburgh regularly seeing family and friends.

What do you love about Edinburgh?

Edinburgh is my home.  The more I travel, the more I appreciate what an amazing city it is.

What has impressed you most about The Edinburgh Grand?

The attention to detail.  There are lots of nice 5 star hotels, but it’s the little things here that impress me, especially when I’m staying here with my young family.  It feels like a home away from home.

What’s new with you?

My new book ‘How to Ride A Bike’ has recently been published, it’s an essential guide for all cycling fans.  A great Christmas gift!!!
