Hannah peers into the driving rain of the daily commute and sees sunshine and spring at the other end. The worse the weather the better. Giant puddles, torrents from the sky and the valley sides.

The kind of bad weather that makes driving (more) unpleasant, that blocks roads and railways, and leads to transport disruption. These are the perfect conditions for a bike commute.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
