Pedalling Squares

The uphills and downhills of a cycling playwright.

After forty years of riding bikes, writing plays and battling demons, I am pausing the drama and pressing rewind on a series of episodic dispatches.

Pedalling squares is a cycling term for the suffering of going nowhere very slowly. If you’ve ever hit the wall, the block, or the hundred yard stare into a distant horizon you’ll know the feeling.

These dispatches will be a  sideways look at uphill struggles and how quickly you go round the bend.
