Mark Lindsay

Cycling is a huge passion in my life. I’ve ridden my bike in Nepal, Vietnam as well as the more popular mountainous areas of France and Italy. Each year I set myself a personal cycle challenge, this has included taking part in the amateur version of the pro races like Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold and Tour of Flanders.
I enjoy climbing and walking in the Peak District, woodland crafts – living in woodlands, community activism and supporter of social enterprises, supporting graduate teachers through coaching.
I play guitar (poorly), am a keen amateur opera singer and love spending time with family and tinkering with unusual and creative DIY projects.
