After an early riverloop I dropped into my local cafe for quick bite last week. As always, there was a group of cyclists out the front, it’s like that in North Freo. By chance I recognised the kit of one guy, Mark Ferguson, aka the youtuber/vlogger known as the Cycling Maven. I’d gotten know the Cycling Maven from his excellent videos with Raoul Luescher, the carbon bike guru in Melbourne. Mark’s work chronicling the Australian cycling scene was prolific and I’d become a regular subscriber to his youtube channel. We had a quick chat at the cafe and then I headed off to work. A little later I contacted Mark and asked if he’d be interested in visiting my workshop while he was in town. By good fortune he was interested so we caught up the next day.
