Why not running? Or swimming? Or croquet? I suppose anything really. I do have a day job and a fairly intense one at that - it's not quite your average 9 to 5. On top, I do try to have some form of a private life. This means my free time is fairly limited. Why do I spend this limited free time (a) cycling, and (b) writing a blog about cycling? To be honest, I really don't know. I suspect it's because it has changed my life.
