My name is Pete Linsley. I’m born and raised in the north of England, which is too wet and cold for my increasingly refined tastes.
I plan to one day stow away on a cargo vessel and head for warmer climes. The French Alps, perhaps, or Tuscany. Somewhere with great cycling. This is the long game.
I’ll need my bike though, which is logistically tricky. Also my wife and kids. Stowing away is really a young man’s game, but you gotta have a dream, right?
When I write about pro-cycling it’s usually the stuff that might be happening off camera.
For example: the parenting skills of a certain French pro; that time when Spanish team Movistar went all Marie Kondo and embarked on the great de-clutter; and the increasing intrusive role of tech in our favourite sport.
Sometimes they notice.

I also review kit. Often these are samples provided by the kit supplier which I don’t pay for. I thought it was important to be clear about that. I try to give an honest opinion of any kit I review. I always look for the positives but if a product has flaws I will point those out. It would be wrong not to.
