I live with my family on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire, England. Its a beautiful part of the country which I usually enjoy whilst cycling with friends or the New Forest Cycling Club. I am new to cycling but quickly found it gave me a new challange, an outlet for my energy and knee injuries to moan about. Time trials became an early focus with which I have a wierd love hate relationship. I also used to enjoy astro imaging. Imaging is quite an intense activity and it takes many hours of exposure time to produce high quality work. I intended to develop a remote imaging and residential astronomy centre but the economic crisis intervened. Sadly my equipment is only suited to a permenant observatory setup and that hasnt been possible for nearly 10 years now. My other hobbies and work includes gardening and computers and I have been involved with both from an early age.
