About Me

I’m a keen cyclist who moved to Germany with my recumbent trike in 2014 and then took up a Velomobile habit (I have now owned four, currently just have one).

I live with my husband Klaus (who also has a Velomobile) and our cockapoo dog Poppy in a lovely quiet hamlet near Kempen in Nordrhein-Westfalen, an oasis of calm between the Netherlands and Düsseldorf.

I write a monthly blog post under the title “Six Wheels in Germany” about my experiences as a British person in Germany but they are mostly about all the cycling that I and my friends do too. And the cakes we eat.

The menus above give you the main headings – please enjoy reading and leave a comment! I always love to hear from my readers. On the right hand side you can see the different categories if you would like to read posts about specific themes.

If you like what you read, please send me a message or write a comment (see lower down this page for options).


  1. I was a cyclist most of my life. My wife and i did seven bicycle tours in Germany and loved them all (as well as countless bicycle tours around the world). Not only am I amazed at your cycling achievements, but I find the high quality of your computer presentation absolutely astounding. The first recumbent machine I ever saw was in Germany when we came upon a recumbent club and there was a bundle of hitherto unseen mixture of bicycle wheels and people dressed as cyclists.

    I noticed you comments about Tommy Goodwin and his annual world mileage record and was a bit disappointed to see that no mention was made of Tommy Chambers. This Tommy, the Glasgow one, held the world record for a long time. I first met Tommy out on the road during the war and on many other occasions throughout Scotland. Tommy was quite a character and always a pleasure to ride with.

    I no longer ride my bike, but let me say I find your web site for me a great source of entertainment… you have done a great job here, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how you find the time to do all this. Cheers, John Milloy, late of the Glasgow Regent Cycling Club.

  2. Hi there been following links on recumbent bikes and found you, don’t suppose you still have the Trice Q for sale.

    1. Hi Paul. I suppose technically yes but at the moment it’s here in Germany being borrowed by a good friend. If she decides she no longer wants to ride it then I will work at selling it again but that could be a while.
