Hi my name is Gus and welcome to The Rolling Spoke.

This is an urban bicycle lifestyle blog, born from the simple pleasure of riding a bicycle in the city.

Originally from Toronto, I made the transition to bike a decade ago after having driven a half million miles in car.  I now live in Amsterdam and ride as an inseparable means of living and for pure enjoyment.

I draw inspiration from the bustling energy of the city and have a keen interest in observing people. As such, I’m intrigued by the intrinsic value the bicycle has on the human condition.

This is not a blog about traditional cycling, components or performance. Rather I ride with camera in hand, with the aim to present an unadulterated and photojournalistic view of life on two wheels.

Thanks for visiting.
