James MacMahon is an Irish accountant and fair weather cyclist. He has never actually set out for a bike ride when it is raining, but has occasionally has been caught out in a rain shower, at which point he doesn't mind because "you’re wet anyway".
Although riding bikes all his life, James didn't own his own bike until he was 21, surviving to that point on hand-me-downs with no gears and borrowing/stealing his older brothers' bikes.
The nearest he came to being a professional cyclist was using a bike for his first job... on the local paper round.
After completing his first 100 miler in 2015, he decided to take the whole cycling thing a little more seriously and even plans to cycle in the winter time at some point in the future.
