Why this blog? Well it all started with an idea from my wonderful work colleague Maggie. She said why don’t you start a cycling blog, lets face it you know something about bikes, so why not write a blog. This was after chatting about all the cyclists I saw this weekend riding bikes they had rescued from a long hibernation in sheds and from under covers and other places. Cleaned up, they rode on their resurrected machines, riding along in threes and fours chatting, wondering why their legs were spinning and only moving at walking speed, rusty chains squeaking like military vehicle tracks! Others looking cool in lycra on their expensive carbon bikes, all together sharing sunshine and cycling.
I hope through this blog, I can provoke, inspire, advise, and offer some thoughts and insights. Your ideas are welcome too!
