Extracts from this document...


LLM,L ][ Fellow students, We all have some type of hobby, don't we? This hobby may be a sport, youth group, after school activities, gaming, reading or simply going out with friends. Some of you may be surprised to hear I have an interest in cycling. "what's so good about it?"That is why I am up here speaking to you. So, sit back, relax and listen intently to my speech.
