Thanks for stopping by. Have a look around, it's all quite varied!
I have been retired from professional cycling for almost 7 years now. I've kept myself far too busy with work, namely teaching. I am in danger of conforming to society's norm, so I have decided to go part time and dip my toes into some different waters.
The bottom line is, I miss being outside and being active. Teaching mentally challenges me day-in, day-out but I have no outlet for my physical energy and find myself buring the candle at both ends in an effort to build in time for this.
I love the holidays and have had several touring adventures since moving back to England. I plan to get these on my website with a page or two devoted to touring. My aim is purely to inspire and inform. Be warned though, the only way to learn about touring is to do it.... So get on your bike.
I have one or two ideas up my sleeve to fill my newly acquired time but I intend to continue to be very active on the bike. If you didn't know already, I am regularly putting kit to the test for road.cc , weeks of putting gear through it's paces is brilliant.
My art work is still here, there are even some images still in print. I take the occassional private commission so don't hesitate to enquire if you are interested.
Please keep visiting, the aim is to completely revamp the website. The Touring BLOGS page is the first to get attention...
None of these available but it still remains one of my favourite pieces of art work.
