Welcome to The Start Gate.

This is a place for discourse and commentary relevant to our shared enjoyment of mankind’s greatest invention, the bicycle.

Some of these pieces will already be familiar, as they have seen publication on a top industry website, but I wanted to give them a more permanent archival home. Here, I’ll be posting up pieces ranging from musings to hardline analyses of the industry and culture of the sport, or anything else that seems relevant to the conversation.  

Grab some coffee, drop in, and have a read around.  Constructive comments are welcome, anything obscene or ignorant will be treated with similar tact.
