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 or climbing Pyrenean peaks north of Girona; 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 and the stories they’ve told.
