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. Cyclespeak is all about the stories they’ve told.
