I have a variety of bikes - Charge Plug fixie, Dawes audax, a Giant TCR Advanced road, Boardman hardtail, even a Dutch granny bike (omafiets) - which I ride depending on mood, route and weather. My preference is for road riding, but I also like the velodrome and have done some infrequent offroading.

Home is the New Forest, a rural part of southern England, which offers some superb cycling. But I've also been known to work (and cycle) in London. And I do try and get away with the bike, whether it be short tours or just plonking it on the bike rack when I go on holiday.

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.
