About Me

I started cycling in June 2006, when at the age of 42 I conceded that my competitive hockey days were behind me – it began with me hiring a bike for a half day of riding in Sardinia while on holiday with friends. Little did I know that from such humble beginnings I would end up exploring the UK, Europe & North America using pedal power!


Along the way I’ve climbed some of the epic mountain passes from the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia,  Criterium du Dauphine, Tour de Swiss & Tour of Britain, as well as visit World Heritage Sites with the most amazing scenery & panoramic views.


Although I’m a latecomer to the joys of cycling, in many ways the late start has made me more passionate about my hobby. I hope that by sharing my experiences on my blog you too might be tempted to explore some of these places for yourself.
