A new job in 2009 meant Dan was faced with the prospect of three trains and a hefty travel bill. He decided he'd give cycling a try instead. Then he bought another bike to go a little quicker, and then he bought another bike - and then he decided to try some sportives so he had to buy some more bikes.
Still steadfastly refusing to pay train fares, Dan racks up 140 commuting miles a week whatever the weather. He does a bit of running, likes fixed gear bikes and wants to see how fast he can get before age slows him down.
