Why this cycle-café and why am I writing this?

if you are on this site cycling at least interpels you, yet it is time consuming, expensive and perhaps not that easy to combine with a professional and family life. Motivation, organisation, perseverance are all put to the test and this 24/7.

As time is the most expensive commodity, and even more at my age, I want to share my experiences.

This blog should trace what I am doing/done in/for cycling and what it has cost me. You will find my experiences with material, food, business development, training,.. you name it,

I will try to be as transparent as possible and hopefully this will help the reader, if any, but also myself.

Being on a bike (for the moment about 10 hours a week) sometimes (understatement) makes you think in circles. Reading my own think path could shorten the process.

Enjoy the ride !
