About me

I’m Chris (the one at the front).

I’m a big fan of cycling as a way to see the world, and to connect with the people who live in it. I also believe you don’t need a lot of money to have an adventure.

My day job is digital marketing, and I also help third-sector organisations on a pro bono basis, with a focus on cycling advocacy groups.

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to write books. Trying to make this a reality takes up a lot of my time.


What I’m up to at the moment –

What I’ve been up to recently:

    • Aiming for a 1000-day streak on a Duolingo Spanish course – hit this in Jun 2024 
    • Waiting for 500 copies of my book to arrive – it’s here!
    • Learning how to use Adobe InDesign to design book covers – Done, despite the near-vertical learning curve
    • Trying to read more books by women than men in 2022 – I did it: 55 to 47
    • Trying to read more books in translation than books originally written in English in 2023 – I did it: 56 out of 103 (54%)

    • Working my way through the Wordle archive (currently 32:3 win:lose) – it got taken offline

    • Aiming for a 500-day streak on a Duolingo Spanish course – hit this in Nov 2022

    • Aiming for a 365-day streak on a Duolingo Spanish course – hit this in Jul 2022

    • Learning chart.js so I can create richer data-based content – got bored of this

    • Volunteering with Ready Set Go in Oxford to get more people cycling – the role came to an end

    • Writing a book about cycling across Canada – finished writing it!
