About this website

The website was intended to do two things: consolidate a lot of material from a lifetime of cycling (and touring in particular) and a provide a means to capture race reports that I prepare for sponsors and media. 

The name: The name Cycling Brad is credited to Lucas Gordon – then 3 year old son of friends TJ and Emma – who referred to me as cycling Brad. ie – “which Brad is coming to dinner – cycling Brad? oh”

The credit: In the movie Back to School, with Rodney Dangerfield, this old rich guy goes back to university to try and impress/relate to his son. Because he has money, he takes a few shortcuts like getting his physics homework done by NASA and getting his book report done by the author of the book (he fails). I felt a bit the same when Wade Wallace – the man behind CyclingTipsBlog.com voted world’s best road cycling website – agreed to help me out. I owe a massive debt of gratitude to Wade for his patience and expertise in helping me put the site together. And if you haven’t seen CyclingTipsBlog.com then it’s worth visiting even if you aren’t into road racing…
