Velorutionary - Andrew Fortune
What do you do for a living?
I am practising as an architect in London, designing homes for those who don't cycle!
How long have you been a cyclist?
I don’t remember a time I didn’t cycle, stabilisers are still a memory. Having experienced competitive cycling in bmx, road racing and mountain biking, there is nothing more rewarding than cycling at your own steam.
What are you riding now?
A bespoke Schindelhauer which I have had de-blinged and slicked. Having tested the ingenious engineering of the bike, mulling it over and creating a spec that will put a smile on my face each time I see and cycle it. The bike has massive amounts of control and solid sense from the tires through the frame and in to the saddle and bars.
What appeals to you about cycling?
Knowing I will be there when I want to be there. Seeing more of the city with ease.
How often do you ride?
Not as often as I'd like. With my new bike things will change.
What’s your favourite cycle route or destination?
The one with least cars unless I am in a 'courier' mood which Schindelhauer is well equipped for!
