I’m a keen cyclist who particularly likes visiting Germany, with or without bicycle!
I ride a recumbent tricycle due to a slight disability in my left arm which means I can’t lean on it too much. Since I bought my trikes and Velomobile I’ve found how much I love riding and go out as much as I can.
In 2009 I cycled over 12,000 miles. Since then I’ve been doing fewer miles (8000 in 2010, 5000 in 2011, 8000 in 2012, 8000 in 2013, 6000 in 2014) due to various other parts of life getting in the way.
I have two trikes and a velomobile. The first trike, my Trice Q, was bought in May 2008 just after I moved to the north Essex countryside. This trike has now done just over 25,000 miles.
The second trike, Alfie, is an ICE Sprint with a few modifications (Alfine 11 hub gear, SON dynohub in the front right hand wheel) and I bought him in June 2011.
The velomobile, a Flevobike Versatile, was bought in January 2014 second hand.
And as for Germany… well, the land of Torte und Kuchen (cake and cake!) is always a great place to visit or indeed to live, as I will be doing in 2014. Berlin is my favourite bit of Germany but everywhere else is a reasonable second.
In between cycling and eating German cake I work freelance for a UK book and record distribution company and do lots of book reviews as a hobby.
