Breakaway with...

"Breakaway" is our featured members' Q&A where we get to know them just that little bit better- it's the obvious sibling to On the Rivet. 

Every so often, we'll interview one of the 3,000+ members of Wheelsuckers that we believe has made a significant contribution to our community whether it's adding content or liking/commenting on the content of others.

If you'd like to nominate another member for "Breakaway", please email your suggestions to us with a brief explanation of why you'd like them in the hot seat.

 

Middle Ringer joined Wheelsuckers in June 2012. His current ride is a Specialized Sirrus hybrid, bought after his MB was stolen and new wheels were needed for an upcoming charity ride. As he freely admits, he's now "deep in the world of lycra, turbo trainers and rising average speeds". That's reflected in his modded bike that sports Fulcrum Racing 5 wheels and aero bars in preparation for his TT ambitions in 2013. More

Barry Teal joined Wheelsuckers in October 2012. He certainly follows the N+1 rule with a stable of bikes that include a Ribble 7005SL, Ribble Nero Corsa and a Planet X Stealth Pro Carbon TT - though his dream bike is a Cervelo S5 with Zipp wheels...When he's not doing hill repeats in Scotland, he can be found riding one of his bikes around the Ribble Valley in Lancashire. More 

Emma Woodcock based in Dubai joined Wheelsuckers in October 2012. She's also an active member of her local cycling club, Cycle Safe Dubai, many of whose riders have now joined her on Wheelsuckers! Emma spends her spare time riding a Cervelo R5 along the 85Km of purpose-built Dubai Cycle path as well as building an extensive photo-porfolio of Pro-Riders. More

Captain Paul Harper hails from Northern Ireland but now rides around the equally beautiful Kent countryside. Paul joined Wheelsuckers in October 2012 not long after founding Faversham Velotec CC. Since then Faversham Velotec has flourished - growing from just 3 to 16 riders. More

Greg Russell from London joined Wheelsuckers way back in May 2012 and is a regular contributor to the site. He originally grew up in Fairport, New York where he discovered the joys of cycling on a BMX before being seduced by his first road bike: a Peugeot P6! He's loves riding sportives, at home and abroad, is a huge fan of Quaker Oats and his ideal ride-out would be in the Pyrenees. More

James Piggot has been a member of Wheelsuckers since May 2012 and rides a Cervelo R3 Team with Oxford-based Zappi's CC. Like many of us, James got into serious road cycling after a charity ride (Oxford - Cambridge) which spurred him on to a better bike, training camps in Lanzarote and the Etape du Tour!  More

John Bethell joined Wheelsuckers in June 2012. Amongst his many cycling achievements, John has competed in Time Trials, Track, Cyclo-Cross and Road Racing. He's even ridden alogside the late, great Tom Simpson! More

Paul Gregory joined Wheelsuckers in March 2013. As well as being the owner of Velotastic (vintage and retro cycling apparel), he can rightly lay claim to some great cycling heritage in his family: his grandfather in-law, Maurice Clark, once held the 12 hour and 100 mile records and and his Father in-law was friends with Tom SimpsonMore

Corinne Black has been a keen cyclist since 1996 and regularly puts in 100+ miles a week around County Durham on her 2012 BeOne Briza and a Miss C mountain bike. She joined Wheelsuckers in October 2013 and has been a top contributor ever since! More

Terry Hayward joined Wheelsuckers in September 2013. His first bike was a purple Raleigh Chopper 3 speed, but nowadays, when he is not entertaining Victoria Pendleton, he'd love to be riding in the Peak District on a Look 695 Aerolight ProTeam! More

Dave Rowe joined Wheelsuckers in February 2014. When he's not zipping about on his Charge singlespeed around the backroads of Winchester in Hampshire, Wheelsuckers' member Dave Rowe can be found teasing his hair (?) into a Robert Gesink-inspired mohican and dreaming of Paris-Roubaix. Check our Q&A with him. More

Mike The Bike joined Wheelsuckers in October 2014. Mike has long been entertaining us with his witty anecdotes and observations on cycling. Now, in our latest member's Q&A, you can learn what makes him so passionate about cycling and how his military past led to his love of the sport. More
