What are you proud of?
Cycling very long distances, especially at sub-zero temperatures. Engaging people with written words. My calves.
What have you done?
I used to be a cycle courier in London - now I go on long-distance bike journeys, some of them very fast. I'm very gradually, country by country, tracing a line around the world. I recently published a book, and now I'm writing another one.
What are you scared of?
Downhill mountain-biking; missing a visa deadline. Not being good enough.
What are you up to?
Currently preparing for the Transcontinental Race - 3,500 miles across Europe from Belgium to Istanbul, non-stop, self-supported. After that I want to go and spend a few months cycling somewhere very very cold.
