About

I’m a financial journalist living in London.

I don’t excatly remember when I got my first bike but I’m cycling since I was a small boy. I’m using the bike for getting around in London as well as for touring. Usually once a year my wife and I are doing a cycling holiday. We take our sleeping bags and our tent and are on our bikes for two to three weeks. We’ve been in Italy, France, Sweden, Norway and Wales.

The longest and most impressive bike trip I’ve done was in 2005 with my father. For three months we  cycled across the United States. We started in Charlottesville, Virginia and ended in Portland, Oregon. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. Recently, I’ve also discovered the joy of night rides recently.

Currently I’m owning four different bikes. A Brompton folding  bicycle  for every day bike rides in London and a recumbent (HP Velotechnik Grashopper fx) for longer trips. In Germany, I also have my old hybrid touring bike I’ve used for the ride across America and an old  road bike with a beautiful steel frame by Nishiki.

In this blog I want to share my expereriences and discuss all issues related to cycling. I really appreciate your comments.
