What kind of riding do you do?
I’m a binge cyclist. St Petersburg to Moscow in 2005 and LEJOG for my 50th Birthday – in between I potter around on any of the four bikes in my garage!
What do you enjoy most about cycling?
Fitness and getting life sorted out in my head as get away from everything else.
What’s your favourite ride?
B709 Innerleithen – Langholm – rode it as part of LEJOG and want to go back and ride it again.
What’s your top cycling tip to share?
Do it with friends
If you had a tandem, who would you like to ride it with?
I work with tandems as part of my job (for the Cycling Projects Charity) and I just love getting out with less able riders who may not have had the opportunity to ride on a road or have had a stroke and want to re-learn to ride.
