HI. My name is Michal. I am originally from Poland but I live in the UK. I work as a bike mechanic and ride the bike everywhere, but I am new to bike touring. I have loved the bike since I was a kid but I have become fully committed to it since 2007 when I started to work as a cycle messenger in London. Since then, the bike is always with me, even when it isn’t. My friends joke that I was born in SPDs and call me Bicheal 🙂
I love touring as a new way to meet new people. Somehow they become more friendly to you when you carry all your life on the back of your bike.
