Carl Dedman (1971) Ipswich (Suffolk) UK
Hi everyone, My name is Carl Dedman, I am 49 years old and I live in a small village in Suffolk, UK.
I started cycling at a very young age, but stopped when I moved into my own house and a got a job, kids and responsibilities.
About 2011 I decided to challenge myself after reading about a 75 mile ride for a local charity. I brought a bike and my first bits of Lycra. Completed the ride with very little training, And that was it, Hooked all over again.
I do it mainly to keep fit and spend time with friends. But over the years I always like to have a challenge.
I love the way that cycling can take away all the stress of work and life, and makes you feel better after every ride.
Like many cyclists, I spend far to much on bikes and new kit and have found a new way to communicate with like minded cyclists on instagram. As I love photography almost as much as cycling.I look forward to being part of this amazing group and sharing new experiences with you all.
