I’m on the road and off-grid for the rest of 2014, and regretfully I won’t be able to respond to messages sent via this page until the New Year. If you don’t mind waiting a few weeks for a reply, please feel free to write in; I will reply upon my return. In the meantime, please check the FAQ below, as well as the advice pages, as your question might well have been answered already…

Frequently Asked Questions

1. I’ve ordered something and it hasn’t turned up. Help!

2. Do you run adverts, paid text links, commercial guest posts, or other forms of content marketing?


3. Can you help me plan my bike trip?

Sure. Sell everything. Quit your job. Get a bike. Ride. That’s all the planning you need to do.

Need more help? Check out the advice section. It contains over 400,000 words of information. That’s almost as much as all six Lord Of The Rings books combined.

4. Can you write a detailed review of [insert big-ticket item here]?

Depends. When it comes to commercial gear, I’m interested in small-scale, independent, ethical gear makers. (It’s a living-by-your-principles thing. Check this out.)

5. Can you tell me what’s better — Bike X or Bike Y?

Have you test ridden both of them?

Yes? You’re better placed to know than I am. I’ve personally ridden very few touring bikes.

No? Test ride both of them. Choose the one that feels right. (Can’t test ride both of them? Choose the one you can test ride.)

6. Can we meet up for a chat/interview?

I’m on the road a lot, so time and space is somewhat limited, but if it fits with my movements I’m happy to share my knowledge if what you need to know isn’t already on the advice page.
