I’m a cycling aficionado.

I bike for fitness, and encourage others of all ages, shapes, and sizes to do the same. I tell them it is good for their health, good for the environment, and more than anything, fun.

I enjoy being out on a bike exploring and challenging myself to longer distances, and steeper climbs. Riding gives me a wonderful sense of freedom, the ability to go where I want, when I want. There are no traffic jams. No waits. I keep moving, exploring new routes, and talking with like minded cyclists along the way.

I turned 72 this year, and have enjoyed 50 years of road cycling – touring, racing, and commuting. In fact, I enjoy cycling as much, perhaps even more, than I did decades ago. I’m fitter, stronger, and faster than I was as a 20 year old. I have 4 bikes I ride regularly – a full carbon steed, a custom steel frame touring bike, a custom All Road steel frame bike, and another steel frame city bike.

Ride on. Rise up.

  1. Thanks for visiting and following my blogs and liking my about “page”. Although our diet philosophies are quite different we are both passionate about cycling and about quenching our thirst with a good local beer! Ride on!

  2. Hi,
    Came across your blog today. I love the spirit and passion for cycling you share. I look forward to reading your posts. Best, Steve

    • Thank you. It’s true. I am passionate about cycling and most everything else I do.

      I see you are an architect. I am already a fan. The noblest of all work. I’m off to have a look at your work.

      • Thank you for the interest. Yes I am a young architect indeed but the times are difficult, at least here in London… That is why being passionate is important, I would’ve given it up a while ago if it hadn’t been for passion. Thanks again for stopping by!

      • Thank you so much for your kind words! It’s been a while since I’ve painted on any kind of surface. I really must get back into it…

      • Thank you so much. You have no idea how motivating your words are in moments of doubt like these. Thank you, and I shall keep it up!

      • Whenever you need an antidote, please reach out. If you weren’t an ocean and continent away, I would have a project for you.
