Chris Whiteman (1984) Manchester, England
Hi, my name is Chris and when I’m not being a cyclist I can be found working hard in the office and being the best husband and father I can be.
Cycling first started for me back in 2011 after moving to a new house which took me 15km further away from my office. After that quickly realising the huge expense of getting a train to/from work every day I decided to try commuting by bike.
I threw myself in at the deep end and went straight for a road bike and clippless pedals from day 1. Coincidentally this was the first day I came off my bike by forgetting to unclip at traffic lights but we’ve all done that, right?
After that first day though, I was hooked. So, several years (and a several grey hairs) later I can be found spending as much of my spare time as I can riding around the Peak District taking in some of the beautiful roads and views England has to offer.
If you’re ever riding through the North Peaks and want someone to sit on your back wheel 😉 then drop me a DM. Because that’s the best thing about cycling isn’t it? The sense of community and camaraderie we all share.
Enjoy it out there everyone and however big or small your rides, chapeau to you!
