Like many cyclists, I've been riding bikes since I was very young and despite now being less-young, I love it just as much. I've done my time on touring bikes, have cycled throughout the UK, including Lands End to John O' Groats (yes, uphill!) and now have fun on a mountain bike in the hills, do regular charity bike rides and organised bike events on my road bike.
