About Me:
I'm a bike blogger and filmmaker, promoting the European way of riding here. I am also campaigning for an exemption for Bike share bikes from MHL.

lastly, I believe bike art can help change perceptions about utility cycling especially. Hence I'm having an exhibition of such art at the Tap gallery in Darlinghurst, starting, July 4th.
