As a pause and distraction from the constraints of work life, as any past-time allows us, cycling is a refresher for both mind and body.
Riding London's city streets, beyond the remit of the morning commute, makes for a different level of focus on winter training rides.
As part of my ongoing series, 'Rituals', I created a brief series of images with the very talented cyclist, Neil Phillips, as he put some early morning climbs in the hills of north London.
What I seek to achieve with this project is a brief, honest view of the practices and procedures people go through in order to fulfil their past-times. View the full set of images here.
