About me

Cycling is my passion. If I’m not riding my bike, I’m probably reading about cycling. If I’m not reading about cycling, I’m probably thinking about cycling. I’m sure you get the picture. This blog started out as a kind of journal about my life and the things that interest or amuse me (incuding movies and, er, sinister foods) and there are still some remnants of these writings on the site; but now it’s dedicated solely to my occasional observations on cycling, cycle sport and cycling culture

These are occasional because I also write and edit for a living and sometimes lack the inspiration or desire to craft yet another piece of work when I’ve already spent the day tapping at a keyboard. But I’ll try to keep it up to date and, I hope, interesting and entertaining. I welcome comments, discussion and feedback, by the way, so don’t be shy.

For those who are interested, I do most of my day-to-day riding on a lovely Condor Pista fixed gear (hence ‘The fixed factor’) which currently has a 67″ gear, and I go for rambling weekend rides through the Surrey Hills on a Cervelo R3, a beautiful machine. You can read about my misadventures with bikes (including occasional accidents) throughout the blog – it’s a bit of a recurring theme.

If you want leave a comment or contact me, please feel free to do so. I’m often on Twitter and you can email me, too.

  1. Don’t forget to note that you’re an expert prognosticator of cycle race results and one who should always be consulted by those considering placing bets on biking via SkyBet!

    • I don’t think it’s that hard to predict a Cancellara win in a cobbled classic! The other classics will be a better test of my predictive powers – then you’ll see me for the fraud that I am!
