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

“The photo is me at the Northlink ferry terminal in Lerwick waiting for the sailing to Aberdeen. My website www.bikerider.talktalk.net is a labour of love which I hope will help and inspire others to take up touring with a bicycle.”
