I believe bikes are a pivotal vehicle to foster new ideas and strengthen confidence. It’s with this in mind that I created Off The Back; a place to document my passion for cycling here in Hamburg, Germany as well as wherever I travel.
It was in September of 2020, when I bought myself a used cyclocross bike, that my joy of cycling was reignited1 and started riding a lot more. What brought me back into biking was first the feeling of adventure and then the community; I enjoy the solitary stillness of a solo ride but enjoy the camaraderie that group rides provide especially when going far.
