I’m a financial journalist living in London.
I don’t exactly 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. In London, I’ve also discovered the joy of night rides and long-distance riding. I rode Paris-Brest-Paris in 2015 and am on the “Randonneur Round the Year” treadmill since September 2014.
In this blog I want to share my expereriences and discuss all issues related to cycling. I really appreciate your comments.
