I’m based in Lancaster, north-west England. I love thinking, cycling and writing; Thinking About Cycling tries to combine them.
I have a first degree in Geography (Hull, 1989), masters degrees in Sociology (Goldsmiths College, University of London, 1998) and Environmental Philosophy (Lancaster University, 1996), and a PhD in Sociology (Lancaster University, 2002). In the past, as an academic, I conducted research and wrote on issues of sustainability, environment and mobility, but these days I write almost exclusively about cycling, because I believe it’s a practice with unfulfilled radical potential.
This blog is home to some of my past academic work on cycling, as well as to ongoing explorations of and reflections on cycling inspired by my cycling practice.
