Embarrassing cycling story: When I was bunking off school as a teenager to go on a bike ride and had more punctures than I had spares.

How often do you cycle? The days a year I don’t cycle can be counted on the fingers of one hand.
Embarrassing cycling story: I was trying out a track bike in a shop. I’d brought my own SPD-pedals. Since the bike had no brakes I wasn’t allowed to try it out on the road. I clipped in and started pedaling on the floor of the shop. The salesman mentioned something I didn’t pay fully attention to. To my horror I found out a couple of seconds later what he had warned me about. The floor was built like a deck with a 50 cm drop at the edge. I panicked a bit and failed to clip out. This resulted in me falling over some quite fancy road bikes. Luckily there were no damages made and I wasn’t hurt, part from my pride.
Prior to working at Cyclehoop: I worked as a cycling Postman. Bike Builder at Evans Cycles. Mechanic at Cyclebeat Indoor cycling studio. Can you spot a theme here somewhere 😉
