Monosyllabic Cyclist

Taking on different cycling challenges one syllable at a time.


Monosyllabic Cyclist is my cycling persona. And my attempt at a cycling blog. I see it as an antidote to the sprawling adventure blogs I know none of my friends will really read. Instead I challenged myself to do a cycle diary where my experiences are summed up in monosyllabic words. It may be wise. It may be blunt. It may be shit. Who really knows? 


Vancouver to the Grand Canyon

I cycled solo 2,300 miles down the coast and through the desert, carrying everything I needed to survive. 

Ride London 100

I hammered my way through London and Surrey for a third time. Trying to ignore a 95 mile stitch.

L'Etape Du Tour

I took on a gruelling mountain stage of the Tour Du France. 142 km and 16,000 ft of climbing.
