Decided to keep the username I have on Cycling News because a lot of you will be familiar with it.

I started following cycling 5-6 years ago. One night after a life-drawing class I turned on the TV and saw the Tour de France coverage. Something about the shifting and morphing of the peloton, its shape and colours, was hypnotic. I watched it again the next night and, over time, found myself moving from an aesthetic appreciation of the hive-like peloton and stunning scenery to the tactics and contradictions (it's a team sport but individuals win races? huh?) that shape actual racing.

My own bike is a Malvern Star. I'm a ride-about-town-in-civvies kind of cyclist. I started cycling to reduce my carbon footprint and increase my level of health, but the more I ride the more I love it just for what it is.
