Ben from Middlesex enjoys the reinvigorating power of the commute to work with a beard Brad would be proud of!


Ben Ryan




Isleworth, Middlesex


Currently don’t have one

What kind of riding do you do?

Commuting to and from school (I work as a SEN PE teacher) and a longer ride at the weekend either on my own or with a mate (they depend on the weather!)

What do you enjoy most about cycling?

Wakes the body up for work, feel more alert if I cycle to work and ready for the day. The longer rides allow me to focus on something, apps such as Strava and Garmin really do help push you that little bit on segments!

What’s your favourite ride?

Normally a ride into Surrey taking in Box, Ranmore Common or Leith but a ride into Windsor and Chobham is equally as nice.

What’s your top cycling tip to share?

No such thing as bad weather but bad clothing.

If you had a tandem, who would you like to ride it with?

My fiance Norma, she hates my bike being in the house but she's always hinted at a tandem ride!!!
