Alex Oates

Oxford, UK

Alex has been riding bicycles for the best part of 30 years and has a deep seated love for the Sport, People and machines that make Cycling what it is.

Vocal on Twitter under the username Velocentric, Alex shares opinion on everything from the technology of the Sport to politics, doping, the Industry of Bicycles itself and everything between.

Taking this interest, passion and experience and hopefully being able to do something useful with it led Alex to launch the Velocentric website (http://velocentric.com) in June of 2011. Alex is currently focussing on developing interesting and engaging long-form content for the site.

A regular contributor to a number of websites as well as a well respected Industry print publication Alex is looking forward to returning to writing useful content on a variety of Cycling related topics.
