About Flies & Bikes

Flies & Bikes is a website/blog that I started some years ago. Initially I was writing about my interests in Science and my hobbies which include cycling (touring and racing) and tech stuff. At the time I was a University academic, but as my time available to blog waned, the focus shifted towards cycling and tech, then eventually it entered a rather fallow period. 

Along the line, I transitioned from Joomla to Wordpress. I've now reverted back to Joomla - in doing so, I dropped various comments on blog articles (there weren't very many) as the transition, while automated leaves quite a lot of manual rearrangement to be done.

Now retired, I may return to writing about science...

I also maintain the following websites:

Northwood Wheelers - a website devoted to cycling club life in 1950s England, as seen through a member of the Northwood Wheelers. I maintain this in memory of my late father.
