During 2015 I took a year out from regular work, put my life on hold, and cycled from London to Hong Kong, and while I'm currently working on ways to retrospectively document the experience - as well as finishing my blog on pannier.cc - I've also knuckled down with some more familiar work.
Before I left I was working as an editorial assistant on Cyclist at Dennis Publishing, and I'm reacquainting myself with the team there by spending a lot of time at the Cleveland Street London office, contributing to the website, www.cyclist.co.uk. Some highlights over the past few weeks having been interviewing Sir Bradley Wiggins, as well as his former Team Sky teammate Geraint Thomas, which you can read here and here.
I have also been featured in the current issue of BikesEtc, with some pictures and a few words to run through a few of the highlights from my London-HK trip. It's great to see some of my pictures in print, and appears to have been met with a good reception from readers.
Coming up I have a few features with some less 'bikey' publications, and will be making a trip up to the Peak District to give a talk at the Pannier Dark Peak Weekender. While the talk will be about my trip, the last time I spoke in public about it was at a primary school in Tajikistan, so I might have to change up the Powerpoint a bit...
After I get booed offstage I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.
