Favourite movie? This is hard. It depends on mood, so could be anything from Breaker Morant to The Last Waltz to Life is Beautiful.

Favourite music? Dylan, Modern folk, modern country, blues.

Most memorable moment as a member of blood bikes? Relay run for baby milk. It felt special for some reason.

What makes you proud? Family. Justice at last for the 96 - the families NEVER gave up.

What 3 words describe you the best? Committed, interested, curious

You are marooned on a desert island. You can only have 5 things, what would they be? If not human beings? Then my bike and an endless supply of fuel, my Ipod and playlists, a complete works of AJP Taylor, a pop up brewery, and a mechanic’s bike repair manual

You are hosting a dinner party. You can invite 3 people, who would you invite and why? Bob Dylan, because he is an enigma; Che, to ask what it was really like; Malcolm X ditto.

When I was 5, I wanted to be a… footballer

Marmite. Love it or hate it? Neither. It leaves me unmoved

If you were an animal, what would you be and why? An animal? We are all animals.
