First, there's Pete. Husband, Father, probably several other things too. Pete is 47, and moved to the area in 1997 after having spent a while in the US and after having lived in Oxford since he left university in Cardiff. Pete runs his own business, an IT Consultancy, which inevitably takes a fair chunk of his life.
As for spare time, Pete is a keen (road and track) cyclist, and has accounts on Garmin Connect and Ride With GPS to prove it! His "turf" is generally the New Forest, although he gets around. He's very much a born-again evangelist about cycling's health benefits, having gone from a very portly 105kg (232lbs, about 16½ st) to a far trimmer 75kg (165lbs, 11¾st) thanks to the bike.
He also enjoys watching cycling and visits live events when possible (for example the Tour de France and the Tour of Britain). Watching this leads nicely into his second hobby, photography, and he has a presence on Flickr. A relic from his childhood days, Pete also likes football and follows the mighty blues of Everton. Given his background, Pete is inevitably a bit of a computer geek...but we do have the family web site to show for it!
