Cycling is bloody brilliant and if more people did it the world would be happier! Welcome to my website, a place for conversation about all things cycling. The main arteries of the site are a blog, musettes and writings. The blog is journalistic and ranges across kit reviews, anecdotes from my cross-London daily commute, a race here and a book review there. Musettes engage the desire for deeper meanings, whether through the filtering lens of hindsight, a towering personality or an epic event. Finally, under writings, you can take a look at what else I’ve published on two wheels.

“Cycling is unique. No other sport lets you go like that - where there's only the bike left to hold you up. If you ran as hard, you'd fall over. Your legs wouldn't support you.”

– Steve Johnson

“...the bicycle is the most efficient machine ever created: Converting calories into gas, a bicycle gets the equivalent of three thousand miles per gallon.”
