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, also tend to plonk the bike on the car rack when I go away. Doing this, I've cycled quite a bit of western Europe.

I started out riding several years ago to lose weight, these days its to maintain fitness and for fun. I've been maintaining my own bikes (mostly) for years, and recently got a bike mechanic qualification. I'm also a motorist. In real life my background is computer software, I run my own company which is pretty much a part-time gig these days.
