Discussing ‘High Speed Steel’ with Ricky Feather (Image: Matt Randall)

Put simply, riding a bike makes me feel happy (with the possible exception of winter mornings that are dark, cold AND wet). Whether the daily commute, climbing Pyrenean peaks north of Girona or on rides with my cycling club; it affords me time to make sense of life’s complications and an excuse not to refuse a piece of cake when offered.

With our shared passion acting as a form of conversational catalyst, I’ve enjoyed spending time with people at the heart of cycling culture and also the impromptu conversations that you strike up with total strangers.

Cyclespeak is all about these people that I’ve met, the stories they’ve told and the roads that I’ve ridden.
