About

Most of my riding is on tarmac, for commuting and fun (which includes Audax) but I do a little MTB as well as taking the tourer on gravel. The only person I compete with is myself. I have quite an interest in making cycling available and appealing to everyone.

My Eddington Number is 84 (in miles).

Me on Strava.

I mainly ride solo or with Audax Club Bristol, but also with Avon Outdoor Activities Club.

n = four and a half. I now have:

  • a Genesis Tour de Fer 10 (2017)
  • a GT traffic hybrid (2010ish) (formerly with child seat). The frame lasted 40,000km before a weld died.
  • a Saracen Tufftrax disc comp 29er hardtail (2017)
  • a Barracuda California hybrid tandem to ride with my daughter
  • a Universal Wildthing Blowout (stupid name if you ask me). It's essentially a BSO clone of the Raleigh, and all other 90s no-sus MTBs. But for a bike that lives outdoors in a high-theft area and doesn't go far it works for me.
  • a 24" unicycle, which I'm making very slow progress learning to ride and also converting to 20"
  • a Raleigh Michigan (rigid MTB, 1992) The back wheel died.

I also look after the family's bikes including a kid's bike and a trailer, and do most of my own maintenance, and even small jobs for the neighbours' kids. I seem to end up modifying components and accessories quite a lot, or making custom parts like brackets and luggage.
