Jasper Gates (aka Dave Buchanan)
I’m a semi-serious cyclist in Edmonton, Alberta, who has a moderate, grown-up fondness for (mostly road and gravel) cycling and reading about cycling. In my day job, I teach English literature at an Edmonton university and do research on early cycle-travel literature.
I don’t race. But I do commute by bike and ride semi-seriously with my Musette pals whenever I can. I follow bike racing, but only semi-seriously. I love short-trip cycle-touring, fat-biking, winter cycling, and grinding away on dusty gravel roads.
