One-fifth of British people cycle to work less frequently than they'd like, due to the lack of facilities available at work, research has shown. 

While you can set up hooks, racks or sheds at home - whichever works out as the best bike storage solution for your space and budget - if you’re cycle commuting, you are fully relying on the facilities at your workplace to keep your commuter bike safe and secure.

I’ve been hooked on bikes ever since the age of 12 and my first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in the bright yellow kit of the Hillingdon Slipstreamers. For a time, my cycling life centred around racing road and track. 

But that’s since broadened to include multiday two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain I happen to meet - with a two-week bikepacking trip from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia being just the latest.

I still enjoy lining up on a start line, though, racing the British Gravel Championships and finding myself on the podium at the enduro-style gravel event, Gritfest in 2022.
