I have a few bikes - Charge Plug fixie, Dawes audax, a Giant TCR Advanced, Boardman hardtail, also an omafiets (Dutch granny bike) - which I ride depending on mood, purpose and weather. My preference is for road riding, but I also enjoy the velodrome and infrequent offroading.

Home is the New Forest, a rural part of southern England with superb cycling. I've also worked and commuted in London. I've done some short tours, and generally tend to plonk the bike on the car rack when I go away.

I started out riding several years ago to lose weight (successfully), these days its mainly for fitness and enjoyment. I've been maintaining my own bikes (mostly) for years, and recently got a bike mechanic qualification. I'm also a motorist.
