David irons his shirts and loves to cook. However when he is not being domestic, he also has a thing for palindromes and has found them strangely successful in choosing habitation. His favorite bicycle was one owned when he was a kid, complete with rear hub break meaning he could easily do the longest skid in his village.

Since then, his tastes have somewhat refined and his cycling areas of expertise have expanded to back country and bike packing. Other hobbies of his include a “wee bit of everything”. This entails skiing, sailing, climbing- generally anything outdoors!

Rory dances worse that most peoples dads. Fact. He can also eat a scary amount of chicken. His areas of biking expertise are in downhill, all mountain and cross country. His first downhill bicycle was a black Santa Cruz V10 called Vanessa. Sadly she snapped when Rory hit a tree during an emergency horizontal stop and he has never quite gotten over her. When he’s not biking he plays American football for the Napier University Knights and East Kilbride Pirates.
Take care and hopefully see you soon!
