About

Greetings! My name is Miles Baxter. I’m an engineer with a deep-seated passion for bicycles. The first chapter of the story began in an unexpected place – a lottery draw. My father, the lucky second prize winner, brought home a prize that was more than just a shiny new mountain bike. It was the spark that ignited my lifelong fascination with bicycles.

I was absolutely thrilled with my new possession. I would spend hours riding it, feeling the wind in my hair and the thrill in my heart. However, my enthusiasm quickly transcended from simple rides to attempting acrobatics, like letting go of the hands, only to be met with a scolding from my father. But that did little to dampen my exploring spirits. Those were the days when the seeds of my engineering dreams were sown, nurtured by the intricate mechanics of bicycles.

Fast forward to the present day, I’m an engineer who’s never lost that childlike fascination with bikes. They represent the perfect harmony of simplicity and complexity, a testament to human ingenuity, and a constant reminder that there’s always a way to move forward, even if it’s on two wheels.

Now, let’s shift gears to this website. It’s my digital playground, a place where I share my passion for all things bicycle. Here, you’ll find the good, the bad, and the hilarious of biking – from the sense of accomplishment in restoring an old bike to its former glory, to the less glamorous task of cleaning a scraped knee. Because let’s face it, biking isn’t always a smooth ride, but isn’t that part of the thrill?

If you’ve ever felt the rush of conquering a steep hill, the satisfaction of a well-oiled chain, or even wondered about the somewhat strange cycling fashion choices (yes, we’re talking about the spandex), then you’re in the right place. This site is for those of us who understand that the journey, bumps and all, is often more exhilarating than the destination.
