WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING Having started cycling quite late in life, I love riding whatever I get my hands-on!

I enjoy riding my road bike hard on gravel and am looking forward to someday riding The Paris-Roubaix challenge. DISCIPLINE: Mountain Biking & Gravel Road CURRENT BIKE(S): Specialized Allez Comp & Specialized Rockhopper Pro DREAM BIKE: S-Works Stumpjumper FSR & CruX Expert X1 OTHER PASSIONS: Dogs, Cooking, Photography & Travel
